Instead of Certification, go for Mainframe/Testing/AS 400 course. It's really tough time for you but be cool and think a lot before doing anything...

All the best.

If you don�t get a job for about 3-5 months after you graduate don�t think that it is only happening to you, it happens to most of the IT professionals who were not able to get the job from campus recruitment and who are not from the top colleges. The important thing is to keep away from frustration and keep your motive up. Decide your platform Sun, MS, Mainframe etc get some specialized training in that, if you are not able to decide which platform or technology you should choose do some study, search google and other jobs site to see which are the technologies which have got more job opening at entry level, try to analyze your comfort level in the technology you choose, do some open source project, find out what are all the companies which are taking entry level professionals and what is their criteria ?. Try to avoid such companies where you are not able to fulfill their criteria to avoid frustration. Last but not least go for certifications, they might not guarantee you a job but definitely certifications will help you to find a job easily, Best of luck for your future.

Go for your sun certification(SCJP). It takes a while to prepare and it's really helpful. Java is used widely and its got a very good scope. Any DB knowledge like Oracle etc. would increase your chances.

Also, if you are in India, you should study OOPs and Designing(UML) etc. That's enough knowledge to get you an entry level job as a trainee.

i will say , today small compnays gives more preference to skill
level . and big companys will see ur aptitude and ur brand(college
name ) . so u have two options .
By seeing your mca degree i will suggest you , make ur resume effective by adding good projects . and upgrade your skills .
anyway selection in walkins depends on luck ,
Last year accenture had recruited so many people just by
aptitude and without any tuff rounds .
so just believe in yourself and work hard . surely you will get
chance .
I agree. Here's the link:
