This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
I have been looking for an entry level job a year and haven't got any. I have B.S. in Computer Science and Sun Programmer Certification. All employers need just expierenced people... Is still there anything like an entry level job?
Sadly, because of the current recession and burst of the "dotcom bubble", there are many many experienced java programmers currently out of work and looking for a job. This does make it hard on someone just entering the field. I just got a new job myself. I am lucky that I have about 11 years experience in this field (4 with java), because there were about 700 applications for this one position. All I can say is keep trying, and while you're looking, keep studying, and good luck.
It's a perennial problem and I had to fight it myself many years ago. They won't hire you without experience and you can't get experience without someone hiring you. Catch-22. The present sour economy and the fact that everyone now wants to outsource offshore just exacerbate the situation.
