Yes, the certs will help, but without field experience, they are only paper. 

This is how you get experience: 

Volunteer. Churches, schools, especially free schools, and all sorts of charities need your help. 

Sell your services directly to small businesses . 

Volunteer for and sell the work you like best, take on as much as you can handle and do everything to make your customers ecstatic. 

Collect good relationships, and reference letters. 

Teach everything you know, and be a wide-eyed learner. 

Work for peace. 

OK, that last one won't really help you get a better job. Or, maybe it will.
