A Sun Certified Programmer in a job interview

with one comment

So you thought being a Sun Certified Programmer would let you breeze through technical interviews with companies looking for java programmers/developers?

Not really the case with me. I’ve had to sit through 1 hr technical exams ranging from written ones to multiple choiced one (90 questions to be exact), even though i had that paper.

Yesterday, i had scheduled 5 interviews, 4 of which required a technical exam, which meant for that day i spent about 3-4hrs doin exam papers..cool eh.

To be honest, give me a practical exam anytime. i rather churn out code on the machine than a written test.

I do hope the certificate has more value in Singapore to be frank. Not too sure how is the certificate doing in other countries.

  1. it is the same shit in every country.
    Most people do not understand the value of a certification and they will make you pass exams to test you.
    It totally sucks.
