What certifications do I need as a programmer to get an awesome job?

So I'm currently getting my Bachelors Degree at Stratford University in Information Technology (IT), and have no certifications for anything. I currently want to be a full stack web developer, but as of right now I only know HTML, CSS, JS, Bootstrap, JQuery, and a little PHP, and JAVA. Overall, I need some form of direction! What resources are there for what we need to set us away from the pack, and that would make a resume look that much even better? What certifications does a programmer need guys?

Very Respectfully

Depending on your location, most places require at least a bachelors degree, but it seems you're already on track for that. Other than that, you can get A+ certification in Computer Science. There's also some other certifications you can invest in. I left a link from Rasmussen College of 5 other certifications.
