This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
What skill sets would be expected by companies (like Amazon) from someone who has no work experience? I passed out of engineering just last year and have done a 6 months of internship (didn't learn much here tbh). The syllabus during my computer science undergraduation did not cover any Java frameworks like Hibernate/Spring/Struts, or tools like Maven, or even JSP, etc.
Will I still be asked about these things in my interview?
Will I be only tested on DSA considering my lack of work experience?
What do you suggest I should do? Currently I am learning about servlets and MVC architecture. I cleared OCPJP 6 last month. I'll be joining a two masters course this fall.
Companies look for a few things. Here are some that spring to mind:
1) Did you do well in school? Do you remember what you learned?
2) Do you have any experience? What did you do there?
3) Do you seem easy to work with?
4) Do you seem like you learn quickly?
5) Do you know what you say you do? For example, you got a Java cert, you should be fluent in Java.
