it seems to be the same cycle over and over again....recruiter/hr person calls me for interview. i tell them about me and they ask about my experience. "well i just graduated in june, i dont really have much industry experience".
at this point i can pretty much i forget about the job...
everywhere i go, job fairs, online job search engines like monster etc, they all want people with experience.
what can i do? where do i go? im so lost here. i dont know what to do.
i was in the same situation...i emphasized on my academic projects and internship. certifications helped a bit too. btw, where are you hunting for a job? india? usa ?

While searching through many companies site I found a lot of openings for .net, asp.net, c# etc. Shall I start learning .net or java/j2ee is also eqaully hot and looks good for future also. I know Java is huge technology but I do not have exp. (I am scjp) so I should try and find java job or .net also good.
I am asking this qst because for experienced people it is easy to find java jobs now but what will it be like in future? java/.net. [ October 29, 2005: Message edited by: Viky Kyle ]

unfortunately, i did not intern or anything in my time in college.
i think that wouldve really helped if i had at least done that.
Unfortunately, most "freshers" realize this too late, when they start looking for jobs during their senior year. In my case, it was just dumb luck. I needed money, so took summer jobs, coding. Keep in mind, back then, "coding" was not a thing to do for a career. There was no such thing as a computer science or engineering degree.

How do they find you/process you that they do not have your resume in front of them to realize that you just graduated.
