GoodDay Everyone,

Can anyone please help me. I have passed OCPJP with 76% couple of days ago. I used to work earlier on oracle and forms(developer 2000). I am having 7 years of expeience. Now that my children have grown up to go to school ,i am planning to go to work after a having a gap of 5-6 years. Can anyone please suggest what type of job can i get with OCPJP and 7 years of expeience in oracle, any website etc. I want to use OCPJP and oracle combination. Or do i need to do any other course to increase my chances of getting a job. Please help me. I am totally unaware what is in the market or what type of job can i get with this. Please give suggestion. I will help me to take the next step. Please.

Much of your experience is "old" in that an employer would question if you still remember it. Is there anything you can do on the Oracle or Java side to show you are still current? Either way, you are looking for a junior developer job. Read the job descriptions in your area and see what they want. It's almost always more than just a Java cert.
