My name is Justin England and I am a Senior Recruiter with Trilogy in Austin. www.trilogy.com
I am here for 3 reasons.
1. I noticed there are a lot of people that could use some good career advice. This is general interview advice and advice on negotiating and changing jobs, ect .... please do not ask for java specific interview questions. All companies are different and you will be wasting your time trying to figure out what they will ask. Ask a Recruiter today !!
2. I am looking for the smartest software and user interface developers (with a sense of humor) and may want to hire you for what was just ranked as one of the best privately held software companies in the US.
3. CA$H !! Everyone likes money, right ?? Check this out .... I will pay $5,000.oo for every single person that is referred to me for a software or user interface developer position (obviously I must hire them) - no strings attached. You give me a name and a number - I hire them - you get 5k.
My email is Justin.England@Trilogy.com.
***** REMEMBER ***** I am here to help so if you just have a question - email me. I answer these questions in my free time so hang in there.

Hi Justin
I am an IT consultant. I am a SCJP who scored 100%. I am based in UK and have about 7 years sw experience. Currently I am the technical lead for BT.com and work on the BroadVision platform. I wish to switch to Java in the capacity of a Team Leader or Technical Lead. I intend to do so somewhere in December. What are the technologies I need to master before I start applying. My email address lancy_m@hotmail.com

IT Consultant:
Since you mentioned you want to "switch" I assume that you really do not have Java Exp. Not that you will not get work in this area but don't be disappointed if you do not get the tech lead position right out of the gates. In my company servlets and EJBs are important technologies to know. Since our software is designed to scale for the biggest companies, we look for people who understand the scalability implications in programming designs. We also look for strong general, language independent OO knowledge.
Hope this is of some help to you and good luck.

"We also look for strong general, language independent OO knowledge."
How do you think that one who does not have industrial experience in OOP can gain knowledge in general OO concepts
and How do you(Employers) test the candidate's OO knowledge.
Thanks

As far as gaining the knowledge is concerned you need to find a company that will mentor you in this - I know this is not easy to do. Most companies do want the previous experience but sometimes will hire you for onoe position and train you on something you want to learn as a trade off. As far as testing your knowledge is concerned, applicants at Trilogy go through a fairly rigorous technical screen on the phone and in person - probing questions that ask for specific examples - and the developers can usually tell who knows it and who does not.
If you have not noticed already, I am not the most technical person in the world so I hope this helps. I am also here to give career advice, from a Recruiter's perspective. In other words, changing jobs, how to interview, how to write a resume, how to negotiate, etc ...
