Dear all

I graduated in 2002 with master degree in IT from a very good university, however at that time IT is very low, I love java very much and got Sun certificate Java programmer in 2003. But I fail to found a job, My first degree in Architecture, So I work as Architect since 2003.

Do you think there is any hope for me to go back to Java area, part of the problem is I lack of IT work experience.

Any suggestion & advice would be very much appreciated!

You can apply for entry level positions in Java and at the same time put some effort into preparing your CV properly.

-- Have an objective section and clearly state your intention to transition something like

"I am changing careers from "blah" to Java/JEE based software development and it is my passion in Java/JEE sustains me in this transition. I have gained SCJP, M.Eng in IT and also gained hands on experience through self-taught and opensource projects etc ........................"

-- Write a CV that highlights your achievements, skills and experience to date.

-- Also brush up on Java/JEE and build some confidence by gaining some hands-on experience through doing tutorials, sample project(s), community project(s) etc.

Employers always look for entry level positions and you need to have a CV that stands out to compete with the graduates.

All the best.


Good luck.

A r�sum�, also known as a curriculum vit� (CV), is a document containing a summary or listing of relevant job experience and education, usually for the purpose of obtaining an interview when seeking employment. Often the r�sum� or CV is the first item that a potential employer encounters regarding the job seeker, and therefore a large amount of importance is often ascribed to it.



See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curriculum_vit%C3%A6

It should be noted that in the US a resume and CV are different. In the US a resume is 1-2 pages and lists jobs. A CV is usually longer and includes not simply jobs, but publications, talks, research, etc. In the US CVs are typically used by those in science and research fields.

Dear David and Ben:

I have explain to you why some people�s surname might not be more than two letter as the great diversity exist on the planet earth.

However, please feel free to make any decision based on your understanding instead of discussing this matter again and again.

Thanks for you attention.
