Welcome to JavaRanch!

Try some tutorials. Or some books, like Head First Java. Or stick around this forum This kind of question arises quite often. Like this one.

Cheers

To be honest, without any noteworthy experience or certification you should be aiming low. Entry level jobs at best. Companies are not going to hire you for anything other than junior developer positions.

Your B.Sc(zoology) might help chasing bugs

Hi Viraj,
Welcome to JavaRanch.

Yes, SCJP will really help. It will need a good amount of preparation from the candidate to clear the SCJP exam and its worth.
Persistence is the key here and just stay put.

Regards,
Raj Kumar

Yes.. SCJP, will definitely help you and i suggest to do it, before entering into job, as it will give you an added advantage.... you can start preparing for SCJP by reading kathy sierra book, which is really very good, and if you have any doubts, we have a SCJP forum as well, you can post your questions there.. we will try our level best to help you.. All the best...

The most common beginner book Complete Reference is not usually read by most of the people who have been working with Java for sometime.

Head First series are good have not read Java, I have read JSP, OOAD, AJAX and EJB(Part). I have liked what I have read, the coverage is good and fun.

If I were you, would get away from Complete Reference. It is your choice though.

I agree. However, "work experience" is a broad term, and the most important part of that is "experience". Practice a bit, for instance in our Cattle Drive, or with other little programs you'd like to write for yourself. Perhaps you can even join an existing project on sites like SourceForge. You'll learn a lot that you won't learn from books.
