I've been learning Java for over two years, have an associate programmer certification and still not even getting the most basic low paying job offers or even an invite to an interview.
Exactly this. Where are you located? I am fortunate enough to live in chicago where there are thousands of java jobs but I still am having trouble. I passed the OCA this month and have many personal projects done and yet to be invited for an interview. I am currently in school but only in my second semester and my graduation date is long away.
What frameworks do you know? i noticed a common theme with jobs ,is that even at entry level they still want knowledge of couple frameworks. I am currently learning spring boot and building rest apis, JSF and microservices, but it is a pain in the ass. I am also currently studying for my OCP in hopes that it might atleast somewhat improove my chances.
Whats funny is that I know damn well alot of people arent being taught these frameworks in school. I know a few people that got a bachelors in C.S and barely know how to code.
