Looking for guidance

I am looking to break into the C++ job market. I come from a business studies degree, I am currently working in the eternally unpopular recruitment field and I am almost done with my 1st C++ Institute Qualification.
I have looked up the number of jobs, rates etc. Though I'm not too sure how many of these are fake and most of these seem to be for experienced programmers.
Essentially I was looking to see if anyone had any insight about how to break into the market, especially when not coming from that sort of background? Will C++ institute qualifications be enough, is there anything else I should be doing.
Any answers would be much appreciated.
