Most likely no job unless you have 2 years of commercial experience with java programming or alternatively masters degree in computer science and required skills proved by non commercial projects you've done.

Moe,
This varies by region. Do you have any paid experience programming? If not, you are looking for an entry level job. And even then, you have to show you can code. (For example, do you have a github account)

I want to get the spring certification as well. This should tell that I see the bigger picture when it comes to programming because I will know how to build apps. I'm in UK btw.

People will want to see the apps you have built. Do you have any degrees?

No degree, I could probably make something with microservices. What kind of apps do I need for make for my github account?

Hi,
Your goal is to first get someone to see your resume and call you.
You will probably then get a phone screen and form there it depends on the company.

It's a bit of a chicken or the egg scenario with a first job.
To get someone to see your resume and call you, you have to have some sort of job  even an internship listed on your resume.

As others have suggested .Create a project and post the code on git hub . Make sure it is clean and documented.
It should probably be a substantial project.

If you want to be a web programmer it should be a web site. If there are parts of the process that you don't know then collaborate with someone who does know those aspects of the project.

If you want to be an Android programmer it should be an app that is available in an app store.  

Your best bet initially is to try to get an internship somewhere even unpaid. Your resume has to show you've worked somewhere.


good luck.
Paul
