If you really aspire a job in software development, the certification will show you have basic knowledge of java. I don't know how it's in your country, but because of the current shortage in IT, there are various secondment agencies that provide education to those willing to learn programming. Have a look around and see if you can enter such a program. They will help you land your first job as well.

I will take a look around. I know we have temp agencies, and recruiters, of course. We have bootcamps now that help land jobs, but they want a part of your first year or two income. I thought about doing one of those, but as the sole income earner they wont fit in my schedule.
