Welcome to LQ forum!!
Hands-on and learn some basic stuff's in Linux before you aim certification. No body ask you to show certificates when you attempt interviews. So setup a Centos6.4(free) virtual-machine and then practice yourself with some basic commands. Virtual-box and Vmware player are free..

Why do you want a 'certification'?? For what purpose?

It depends on how much you put into it. Asking good questions will get you good answers, as with anything.

...and this isn't one of them. How, exactly, does ANYONE know what the requirements are for a job at some unspecified company??? That's like asking 'how high is up?'

If you are an engineering graduate, you should know how to ask intelligent questions by now. Getting a 'certification' without actually having the knowledge behind it is a GREAT way to fail miserably. You may get a job with your 'certification', but you won't have the knowledge and experience to actually DO THE JOB...and it will be painfully obvious VERY quickly. You will get fired, and that will haunt you for a LONG time.

Engineering Graduates are most of the times in dilemma.

But if you have interest in Linux, you will need some exposure on Linux.

If you are self learner you will succeed easily in learning Linux.

There is no guarantee that if you have a Certification you will get the Job.

I dont want to de-moralize you but freshers find difficult to get the Job.

Few certification options :

This forum is helpful to every one, depends on how well you prepare and ask the questions.

As an Engineering student I am sure you were exposed to some form of UNIX. Either UNIX itself, possibly SunOS, Solaris or even AIX. Moving to a Gnu/Linux will be learning the semantics along with syntax for Gnu/Linux. Look at these links to hopefully help;

Please notice how LinuxQuestions forums are presented to you. Each forum has special interest/heading for you to post a query for that forum topic. When in doubt, try to read each forum description for understanding.

Rather broad query. Most company IT departments have specialized personal used to cover the requirements of the company. Please be aware most new Linux users will barely meet minimal IT requirements. Certifications will not necessarily guarantee a starting position in most companies. Experience using Gnu/Linux will open doors after one meets the initial interview sessions.

Remember that any UNIX experience can be migrated to Gnu/Linux with some effort.

I use Slackware Gnu/Linux and do feel comfortable with Slackware's provision of a UNIX-like OS to Slackers(users).

You should start using a good Gnu/Linux. Not a hold-your-distribution like Ubuntu or the like. One reason for my Slackware choice is that the distribution will help you to learn the inner workings of a Gnu/Linux, not automatically performing admin tasks like most of the GUI driven distributions.

BTW, I am sure that English is not your first language so I suggest; LQ reply windows does make spelling suggestion(s) by red underlining a misspelled word. When you right click on the word a list is presented with suggested correct spelling. You can use several other sites to help with your grammar or Dictionary for understanding or spelling.

Edit: You should consider setting up your LQ UserCP (User Control Panel settings) on right side in the 'My LQ' page menu. There you can setup 'Miscellaneous Options' to 'Enhanced-Interface Full WYSIWYG Editing' to allow full editing capabilities. That is if your system & network are capable. You must 'Save' settings at the bottom of that page.

Hope this helps.

Welcome!

I do a lot of interviews/hiring for IT workers. If you had sent this post to me looking for a job, and this was my first impression of you, I would not have given you an interview, for two specific reasons:

1. My first impression of you is that you prefer asking for help instead of helping others. Your first question should have been "I have done my research, now how can I help LinuxQuestions??" (not "I haven't done any research so please LinuxQuestions help ME??") When you contact a company looking for work, show them you are PREPARED and WILLING TO HELP.

2. Your bad writing makes you look careless. If your business writing has spelling and punctuation errors, that means you do not have attention to detail, so I have to assume the code you write for me will have many errors, too. Do not underestimate the value of GOOD COMMUNICATION!

I hope you treat my comments as constructive criticism to get a good job, I am trying to be helpful, not harsh. Good luck!
