    I recently got laid off from my software engineering job
    due to company's financial problem. If you have a MCAD,
    will it help to find a job in the US, especially in west
    coast area? how's the job market for MCAD or MCSD?

    Jobs are hard to find now, so experience is very helpful.

    If you have a lot of programming experience in general, it will still
    be of some value in a .net job.

    The main benefit of certifications for someone who doesn't have work
    experience in .net is that it shows you are definitely familier with
    the .net technologies.

    As I have recommended before - you should consider doing some web pages
    in ASP.NET for volunteer organizations. It helps a lot to list some
    URLs of your work on a resume.

    Companies are reluctant to hire now if you can't show them what you can
    do.
