What certifications will help me advance my career?

I am an aspiring VB programmer, I've heard that getting certifications in VB would increase my chances in getting a job. I was able to get one from The Career Center from Manhattan, NY last February. Can you tell me what other certifications are they available and where I can get them?
In my opinion, the only worthwhile Visual Basic certification is the one that Microsoft bestows. I've taken the Microsoft exams, and I've seen some of the others, and there's no comparison. As someone who participates in the hiring of Visual Basic programmers, I can tell you that if a candidate has passed any one of the two Microsoft Visual Basic certification exams, that means an awful lot to me.
