I've recently passed the scjp 6 exam with 96% and unfortunately i haven't been lucky with my job hunting i only hold my java certification and a diploma in I.T. I am thinking that should i do a degree or go for the scwcd exam all the way up to the architect certification?I've discovered that certifications help me learn java programming considering that i have 1 year experience in java programming. What should I do to help me get a job, go for java certifications all the way up to architect or do a degree? (considering that i am 25 years old) thanks in advance

First, it is spelled "career" -- not "carrier". Hate to be the grammar police, but this is definitely not something that you want to spell incorrectly on your CV or cover letter. You only have one chance to make a first impression -- don't mess it up.


Question. Are you failing to get any job interviews? Or are you failling to clear those job interviews? Before looking at options like "getting another degree", it may be a good idea to see where you may be going wrong.
