Hi, I want to know whether a entry level person gets direct Developers job? Or is this the case that he should go thru some testing phase and then he will be promoted to Developer? I've done M.S in C.S but one company told me that person with my BG they usually give testing job?J2EE is my main skill set Is it true?? Plz reply
Thesis related to J2EE? .I think ideal thesis should be of fundamental nature and its application to real world.If you are in India,job market has improved in last 1/2 months.Many freshers who were laid off year witnin a month are getting call again.Generally big companies hire freshers ,put them on any training depending on requirement and depending on your performance and your relation with managers/other developers ,you are put in some team.Small companies hire freshers for developing job if you have good GPA and from good school.

Hi, Did you have any real-life project while you are pursuing Master degree? Did you develop good relationship with the professor? When you mention no experience from other topic, I assume you meant work experience. With a Master and projects in-hand, you could try for junior developer level. Go with a small to medium companies where hiring procedures not following rigid protocols. Better yet, have a list of local Java companies from your school career center. If you are not picky in technology, just apply with any local companies and apply your communication skill for the job. But I truely recommend don't stick with just developer position, I have repeated this point for quite awhile. Currently, my company and couple clients companies change the hiring procedure a little bit. For example, if you try to apply for one position, cannot landed. Immediately change your resume to fit with another opened position with the same company without fear of multiple resumes with the same company as practicing in the past. Regards, MCao

Unfortunately I've done one project for one dept, but for some reason it didn't went live. I don't have any project experience except the one done for my graduate courses. I'm trying for all big/small comapnies. But I think instead of java developer I should say software engineer which has broader scope..right? Recently when I went for an interview I realized that they don't care whether you are M.S or B.S...what they want is just "Expereience" hmmm... Problem is if everybody is after experience than who will give freshers a chance:-( thanks for your reply though PC
