I just wanted to share my java job hunting experiences with every one. I am very confident in servlets,jdbc and rmi. I am trying to get some thing in those areas. But i am really frustrated with my job search. I am getting good response but after i clearly mentioned in my resume that i am good in only these areas. Every body is asking me if i have com/dcom,2-3 years of CORBA or EJB. Literrally they are hanging up on me if i said no. I am so disappointed to see that nobody cares for the scjp after all the hardwork we put into that to become one. Is it really very hard to get a java job with out any EJB or CORBA exp. I think once i start learning EJB and become thorough with they will come up with some other thing. One more thing is it very hard to find somehing in Baltimore. Is any body else also looking for a job in Baltimore may be we can share our experiences. How is the java job market in VA,DC and MD areas.
Please give me some tips.

Hi Lalitha
If you are a certified Java programmer, it is not to hard to find a job. For instance, if you live in the New York / New Jersey area or are willing to relocate, my company would be thrilled to speak with you! In fact, as part of a program similar to the one I joined the company under, we are looking for 25+ entry level java programmers. The main qualifications for these positions are certification in java.
So if you (or anyone else)are certified, or are nearing certification, and want more info, email me @:
Those are the largest trousers in the world! Especially when next to this ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
