Hi Guys,

I am a fresher and done MS computer science in US. Being not a US citizen I am facing problem in finding job. I want to go into J2EE development. But if some company calls me for interview they ask me all sorts of questions on J2EE which is quite irritating as I am a fresher with a little exposure to JSPs and Servlets. Should I leave this "land of opportunity" and turn back to my country. The root cause of the problem it seems is that there are alot of freshers out there with fake resumes. So should I do to get a fresher job.Thanks,
Andy

I think you should go back to your country find fresher job. It will be easier there because you are citizen. Then get some experiance and do certifications and then you can come back to US.

Hi Andy,

Classic chicken egg problem. Keep applying everywhere - its not like as if there are jobs only for experienced people - there are always openings at every level. Even the most experienced person did start as a fresher once - so keep applying and also keep educating yourself. Just yesterday I wrote an entry in my blog on how to become a Java developer - drawn from my personal experience. Be at it.

Good luck

@ Venkat,
I read your blog, it was guiding. I really want to switch to struts very soon, I have moderate knowledge of JSPs and Servlets, when I read your blog it seems that I can switch to struts with even very basic knowledge of these two, is it true?.Thanks alot for the great blog,
Andy

Hi Venkat,

Blog is nice and the approach mentioned is very good. I am summarising the content in blog.

Andrew :

You can put effort like this.

1) prepare and get certified in java (scjp 1.4 is also ok)
2) setup and develop a small struts application using tomcat and mysql (both are open source).
3) get some knowledge in Jsp and servlets and EJB.

You can do the above 3 tasks simultaneously.

Hope this helps you to get a entry level job comfortably.

Thanks,
Krishna Mohan
SCJP 1.4.
