Dear All,

For last one n half year,I am working on Core java, JSP, Struts project assignments. Now if some good opportunity comes in my way, I'd like to change my job.

Actally I am in 2 minds:
1> Prepare for SCJP,SCWCD certification and then approch the company.
2> Start preparing of written tests and technical interviews of companies.

If U feel I should start preparing for next job, Can U guys help me what sort of preparation I should do so as to crack written tests(aptitude,technical) and the technical interviews of companies?

Please do reply to this mail, if U have recently changed job n do tell me what sort of preparation you have done for that.

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Deep

if you clear SCJP with good scores then you can clear technical interviews very easily. Having SCJP logo on your CV is definitely adds added value and gives you more chances of your CV getting shortlisted.

Also work on your language skills. Your English isn't up to scratch, with lots of spelling and grammatical errors.
Any application letter written like that will immediately be discarded.

"Deepak M P",

Please look carefully at the official naming policy at Javaranch & reregister yourself with a proper first & last name, with a space between them. Initials may be used for a first name, but not a last name. Please adhere to official naming policy & help maintain the decorum of the forum. The naming policy can be found at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp

To Mark Herschberg,
I hope you now do not have any problems with my name.

To Jeroen T Wenting,
You are right man. I made a mistake with drafting this mail. I have created 2 different drafts of this mail. However in the end, I mixed them. BTW can please guide me how can I improve my English? Any stuff, links will be appreciated.

To Srinivasa Raghavan,
I have now started with SCJP preparation. However can you guide me for preparation for ** Job Change ** ?

To Others,
Please do reply to this thread and let me know your valuable comments on ** Job change preparation **. Few friends of mine need this information BADLY.

Thanks & Regards,
Deep

You have 1.5 years of experiance, You can get into a MNC easily since the IT market is good now a days. Post you CV's in job sites. Get in touch with consultants ( Make sure that the consultants dont ask any money to you before or after getting the job ). In the mean while get your SCJP. If you get it, you dont want to prepare for the sake of interview's you can attend the interview at any time.

to improve your skills in a language, use it. Read original literature in that language, listen to radio broadcasts (or quality TV).
Talk it, write it, listen to people when they point out mistakes.

Ideally you'd do that while in a country that natively uses the language, but that's often not possible.

BBC World Service broadcasts worldwide http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/
Good books are harder to find time for, but there is a massive volume of them.
Shakespeare, Heinlein, Philip K. Dick, Tolkien, the choice is massive.
