I am a new graduate from college and decided to program in java,
so I got the SCJP certification and now preparing for SCWCD.

has any one experianced a big advantage for getting a job with this certification. Is it something that employers look for and can make me stand out from the competition.

and what kind of salary can I expect after getting this certification.

I live in the baltimore/washington Metro aria.

Its not the certification that allowed me in getting a Job, its the knowledge that you get after doing the certification that matters, you can have a whole load of certification but without knowing the subject perfectly, its gonna take you some time to get a Job. But if you really prepare and pass the certification, its gonna help you scale through any interview

I live north of DC along I-270 and just got my SCWCD today.

There is still so much stuff I still need to know. I would think that the knowledge required to pass the SCEA would better prepare you for the job interview.

Java Development is highly sought after in the Washington DC area. You'll see advertisements for J2EE developers.

I have found that the easiest way to get into an interview in your position is to attend the local college job fairs since they are receptive to "newbies".

As far as job offers, I guess I'll have to see how my SCWCD affects the number of offers I might get.
