I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There aren't really any around anymore.... Java, .NET, and C# are where development certifications would actually pay off for you. There's no VC++ ones that's offered anymore that I'm aware of.

A lot of places look more at projects and experience than the do at certifications for C++.

Dear,
I agree with masnrock, C++ certifications does simply nothing to get job. Practical experience and technical expertise does everything.
 If you want to get a job, then dont go for certifications, perhaps try to get exp.
I can give you the list of good books, materials, if you tell me your level of knowledge.

All the best

If I were you, I'd try to do some independent programs and projects... even some freelance work. You can also count some of your academic work when you're pitching yourself in the marketplace.

C++ on UNIX? Here's a site to look at: http://www.coding-zone.co.uk/cpp/unix.shtml
Lots of links to various areas.
