I am Java developer working for a company in blore.In our company we r mainly using IBM products ie IBM Websphere,IBM Content Manager8.2 and IBM MQ Workflow.

I am addict of certifications.What i want to ask is do u ranchers suggest me to continue with sun Certification ie my next target is scbcd but we r not using in work or IBM websphere which i am using in work.

Hi Rashmi,

It mainly depends upon ur interest.My suggestion is Better stay with sun certification even though u r working with IBM websphere.Because IBM cert have no value when compared with Sun cert.

I think Sun Certifications r more valuable and tougher than any other certification in the world.Without hard work u can not achive sun cert.

I am Sorry if u ranhers think my opinion is wrong.Plz express ur opnions on IBM or SUN certifications r valuable

Which Certification have more weight when included on resume

I suggest you go with SUN certification as it is wider. IBM certification becomes narrower and applicable to only IBM products.

I think no certification are valuable. I have 3 Sun certs and 1 Oracle cert, but no interviewer has ever bothered about them. Although the process of preparing is definetely important.
I'd suggest you do certifications for the technology you are working in otherwise u'll get out of touch with whatever you have learned while preparing and you'll be left with only a piece of paper, which holds no value at all (it may be Sun's or IBM's)

Do they know that you are certified.

It also depends on how many interviews you attended. In my case, I just have one(SCJP) and most of the times interviews asks about when I passed out (and other questions about it) and they are aware of my certification, they normally fire tough questions.

Hi sangeeta kapoor

I think u r conclusion is not right regarding sun certification

I think no certification are valuable. I have 3 Sun certs and 1 Oracle cert, but no interviewer has ever bothered about them


Hi Rashmi,

Trust me most people in work force say certification is not necessary bla bla bla........Finally it is what works best for u.One more fact is only because i have done cert i got good job which i expected.


having multiple cert says u r smart ,goal oriented person who can stay independently, not only knowledge of subject
