If I understand correctly, this is a request for tips on getting a job? Moving to the Job discussions forum, therefore.

You might also want to do a search in the forum...

Probably you will need a call to GetALife() at some point in the execution expecially if the GetAJob() function is taking up to much time.

Hi Thomas !

That function is hilarious.

But awfully pessimistic : "public static void GetAJob()", never returns anything when you call it .

Best regards.

It may compile but may not run properly without the help of Recruiter Class.

And to put Recruiter class in your class path, you may require system variable "CONSULTANT_PATH" OR "INTERNAL_REFERRAL_PATH".
There are other system variables too .. but these are best in terms of performance.

To get a challenging, rewarding, and fun (fun is very important!) IT position, a strong resume is important. But, if all employers are ideally looking for seasoned professionals, {I]how does one ever get into a new technology without prior experience?[/I]

The following excerpt from my book, "Taming the Technology Tidal Wave", will hopefully give you some new insights into how to best craft your resume ...

(Copyright (c) 2005 Jacquie Barker -- All Rights Reserved)

Remember that everyone had to start out somewhere! If you are attempting to simultaneously land a new job and a new technology opportunity, you must try to leverage - and market - what you do have experience with.

Once you scratch the surface of most new technologies, you'll find that their underpinnings are technologies that you're already quite capable with. Focus on selling these similarities on your resume.

As an example, let's say you have a great deal of experience with relational database design, and hence with entity-relationship (E-R) modeling, a way of graphically portraying such designs.

You want to break into object-oriented analysis and design, but have virtually no experience with OO modeling, aside from one book that you've read on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) notation. However, you recognize from reading that book that there are more similarities than differences between the two modeling approaches. Simply add a note to your resume as follows:

'Adept with E-R modeling, the basis for UML notation.'

to demonstrate your 'savvy' in this regard.

Don't forget to mention technologies that you might have studied - whether formally or only informally - even if you haven't actually gotten a chance to actually apply them on the job. Just make sure to indicate that they are technologies you've studied, but not yet gotten significant professional experience with, in the interest of full disclosure.

Also, in putting together your resume, don't underestimate the value of your 'non-techie' skills! Make sure to emphasize relevant job skills/work experiences that aren't necessarily technology related. For example:

  • If you're a particularly good communicator, or have exceptional client relations skills, play this up. It's an unfortunate fact that many techies are weak when it comes to clearly expressing ideas or getting along with people; both skills are particularly important if you're pursuing a customer service or consulting position.
  • If you're a quick study, call that out in your resume, as well: 'Adept at learning new technologies'; 'mastered technology X in only 3 months by following a disciplined program of self-study'; or whatever is appropriate.


  • It's far easier for an organization to train someone in the latest technology than it is to instill in them a good work ethic, a positive attitude, strong communication skills, and an aptitude and interest in learning. No matter how tremendous someone's technology skills are today, those skills will begin to tarnish if they don't have what it takes to keep them fresh. Work hard to polish your capabilities in this regard, then sell those capabilities!

    Best regards,

    Jacquie Barker
