Hello ,

I have 1.5 years experience in Java and J2EE technologies. Now Currently Working in [DELETED] in SAP Domain. I want to get back to Java again. Can anyone tell me, in what are all the areas should I have to concentrate? so that the top software companies can hire me.

I do not understand why people just do not think twice before posting a question which no one but only they themselves can/should answer. But since you have asked, you have 1.5 years experience in Java/J2ee so try in that domain itself ! I don't understand what you mean by "areas to concentrate" ? Area according to me can be anything in development in Java/J2ee so strengthen your Java/J2ee basics. Try to pick up new frameworks like spring/hibernate/struts if possible. I do not know what else to suggest. All the best.

Start by asking yourself why you are already leaving your current job, because potential employers will ask the same question.

If you want to go back to Java, ask yourself why, because potential employers will ask the same question.

If you don't like working with SAP, ask yourself why, because potential employers will ask the same question.

Ask yourself what kind of employer you would like to work for and why, and also ask yourself why you are not happy with your current employer, because potential employers will ask the same question.

For example, an employer might think that you've barely had time to learn anything useful in your current job, and already you're jumping ship, so how can they trust you to stick around and work for them? So you'd better have a good answer to that question.

Next, start thinking about what you really want to do, not just in terms of technology, but also in terms of business sectors. There are thousands of inexperienced Java developers, so you're not going to be anything special just because of your 1.5 years of Java experience.

So think about what experience you can sell that other people don't have e.g. if you've been working on financial or HR applications, then you could target companies working in those areas. Or you might have particular business sectors that you're really interested in, so be prepared to explain to a potential employer why you want to work in those areas.

Nobody owes you a job, so you need to start thinking like an employer i.e. think about why they should employ you instead of some other inexperienced Java developer. Then you'll have a better chance of getting the kind of job you want.

Good luck.

Chris

Because JavaRanch is a place to talk and discuss.
