Best way to get a Java job?

Discussion in 'Java' started by rockstarartist, Jan 15, 2007.

  1. Hello all.

    I have spent the last couple of months studying for the Sun Java
    Programmers exam, and I am currently planning to take the exam on the
    first week of March.

    I started sending out feelers to several jobsites and have recieved
    responses in regards to my web development skills and none for Java. I
    have been searching and applying for entry level Java positions but I
    am not getting any hits.

    Does anyone have sugggestions on how to jump into the Java developers
    world as an associate/entry level?

    Thanks.

    The majority of Java work is in the J2EE world, so Java knowledge
    plus some Struts/JSF/some-of-the-other-bazillion-java-webframeworks
    is probably a good idea.

    I would be surprised though if there were absolutely
    no standalone Java app work at all. Where are you located ?

  3. Im located in the Baltimore/DC metro area. I see lots of Java postions
    posted, and most are J2EE...unfortunately, im not getting any hits. I
    started going through the recruiter/headhunter route...and to my
    dismay, they keep pointing me towards PHP/SQL/Web Development
    positions.

    Maybe its my resume...or cover letter, or perhaps the oddly shaped
    protrusion, about 10 inches in width about 2 in height, similar to a
    mullusk, attached to my upper left eyebrow. hehe.
