Hi,

I am an engineer (computer science) passed out two years back. I was working for a company in which i was placed through campus recruitment. I was assigned a project related to an ERP (Lawson) there. I did work efficiently but knew that growth in an ERP is towards functional domain, also my work was mainly coding in COBOL, where i could not be very innovative due to language constraints.

I then decided to learn Java and gave SCJP 1.4 yesterday scored 93% in it. I am also learning Servlets and JSP now.

Can anyone please guide me with how should i go further in this area and how should i approach companies, as according to me all i see is companies asking for Java experienced people and i do not have any industrial java experience.

I am also planning to start a project for my brother who is a doctor and needs a software to maintain data about his patients. I suppose this could help me improve my skills and give me some experience on my own.

Please do reply.

I am also very new to JavaRanch

Hi, welcome to JavaRanch.

Why don't you try on another Mutli-national Companies,search on any job site
and choose what you like and you can also take help from Job-Consultancy
companies , there is a lot.

Since you are BE(Computer Science) you can apply for almost any IT post.
If you don't like COBOL just pour it and stick with J2EE technology because
Java is everywhere and for ever,Or you can say Java is Immortal since
there is ever-growing pre-built class library for almost every thing.
Since you are Sun Certified you already know about it, I am not going to
tell too much about JAVA.

In this thread ,You will find many people will suggest you to learn Framework like Spring, Hibernate and Struts,listen to them.

best regards,
omi sharma

What the employers are looking for is experience but don't care whether it is paid or unpaid, self-taught, volunteer etc as long as you can provide some URL to your work.

Also never under estimate the power networking and having an effective resume.


good luck.

Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
