Hi,
I cleared SCJP by a pathetic score of 65%. I don't know what to feel about this. Although I have to concede that my preparations were minimal due to constraints of time.
But the question, I face now is that where do I go from here. Obviously I need to do a great deal more coding.
Hope this doesn't sound like a self-prophecy but I am just about done with my MS in Industrial Engg, Kansas state. Our forte is Logistics ,but we end up using IT a lot particularly Java and Oracle. I am currently involved in my MS project which involves Java (servlets, JDBC-ODBC) and Oracle in trying to develop a "3 tier sales and inventory system specifically for downstream B2C". I am sorry if this is the wrong kind of post on this discussion board, but I have gained a lot from this discussion board on things which are sometimes irrelevent, but still useful.
One more consideration is that I have no job experience, and hence I would need the right kind of start to jump start my career.
Apart from logistics, I can say that I have a fair knowledge about databases and a few basics of networking (routing/switching).
So in this regard, I would really be grateful if someone, particularly the Sheriffs have any advice to offer on this.

I too am an industrial engineer with a masters degree. You will find that your computer proficiency will give you opportunities that other IEs will not have. You will be sought out to solve problems that others can't.
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
