Hi Dhanashri,

Maybe I can help, as I was just recently in your position. Actually, before my current job as a Java programmer, I had no commercial or academic Java or OOP experience, and was working as an English teacher! The first thing that helped me a lot was to take my Java certification, the OCPJP exam. I took the SE5 version. I studied the Sierra and Bates SCJP SE5 book to study for the test. I also took several practice tests, and didn't take the exam until I had passed 2 practice tests at the first attempt. It wasn't so much the certification itself that helped me, but what I learned in the process. At the interviews I attended, some candidates had very little Java experience, so the cert will definitely give you an edge! Also, I wrote a few practice projects, a video converter using the Swing GUI components, an Applet that scanned the web for video game reviews, and a few more. About internship projects, I'm not sure what you mean, but I'd be happy to tell you about some of the coding tests that I've taken for my interviews, or what kind of daily work I do in my role...not sure if that's what you mean though(: After that, I applied to several agencies for an entry level Java job. It took me 4 months to get my first role, but I've heard that the average is over 6 months! If you are in the UK, I can recommend some good agencies for you!

All the best anyway(:

Thanks Billy Sclater for your reply..
I am currently learning java by myself... when I go for Java interviews the only feedbackfrm them is you dnt have practical or working exp in java. WE need some one who can directly work on project without any training.....
And I am from India, will be glad if I get a chance to work in UK...


Regards,
Disha

The company I am working for is called SmartStream, they are hiring 'new starters', no prior experience required. They have an office in Mumbai, but here in Bristol in the UK they are still hiring!
