I suggest doing your own project. It doesn't have to be anything big or complex, maybe a simple GUI, some business logic and a database. All the software is freely available, such as Swing, Tomcat and MySQL. Learn how to use Ant to build and deploy. You will learn a lot from doing this and you will have some code written by yourself to show prospective employers.

I find that most serious corporations only look at work that you have done for other corporations, when I build stuff of my own, they didnt acknoleged it as anything good or favorable. Only now that I have a year with an employer do people take me semi seriously.

At the same place that didnt take my own projects seriously, I have also heard of a programmer voninteering for them and geting hired afterwards. I know working for free really sucks, but consider it.

That depends on what you did - if it had any practical use and what skills you learned when creating it. To be honest, however, Canadian firms tend to be really picky about what PAID experience they will consider too.

Cheers!

This isn't strictly a Canadian phenomenon, employers get picky in a buyer's market. When it turns around into a seller's market their tune always changes. And don't believe any market is permanent, if you do I've got some $40 silver, $124.50 Nortel stock and $50,000 tulips that you might want to buy (if the squirrel doesn't get it first).

The most likely cause of the next big change in the employment market will be the retirement of a large portion of the post war baby boom. This has started, and should peak in 2011.
