Are there any jobs for programmers who only know Java, or have just learned it or become certified?

If you had to pick three skills to start out in today's market, with no prior IT work experience, what would they be? Number one here is getting SCJP certified. What are two more that would help the most?

Hi Jesse,

you should post this in the Job Discussion forum.

You dont provide that much information about yourself, so I'll
go ahead and assume that your under 30 and living in the USA or
in the EU.

I think it's gonna be very hard to find an IT job without any
prior IT expirience. If I should suggest one thing, it would be for you
to get an IT related education.
