Hi,
I am orginally from India. I am here because of a short project in which my husband is engaged with. I have completed my Masters in Computer Applications from India but unfortunately dont have any work experience apart from an 5 month academic project from an s/w firm in India. I have got a work permit also. I am currently preparing for SCJP. I have seen that the job market is very bad now. Are internships in the form of projects available? Where can I find them? Are internships better than Certifications? Or should I just see whether I can change my field?
Thanks

Try the empolyment center of university. They serve student, so you have better chance to find internship, or entry level job.

Absolutly. Anything you can present well to the potential employer.
