In my opinion hands-on experience is more valuable. It can be achieved through paid work, volunterr work, self-taught projects, open-source contribution, etc.

Can you come up with a sample project to work on in your training. Talk to your leader. At least try to work on a proof of concept for the organization. You could study part-time for SCJP while continuing your training.

You must have done academic project in your final year B.E. right? Same way do some project at your company if you do not have work and in parallel do SCJP or search another job.

It does not matter if next company will give a value to it. But it will give you confidence.

What's wrong with enhancement work? Or is it that you aren't even getting to do that? What are they paying you to do?

Are you looking into the existing project(s) & their technologies themselves ?

You mentioned a BE degree, then you can study SCJP course on your own alongwith the job. Also, I think a personal project would not be given letter of recommendation easily, better ask with your senior.
