It's hard to compete on the Java/C++ front though because a lot of people competing for those jobs do have actual work experience. What about learning something a little more specialized? Like iPhone or Android development.

I suppose I could go that route. It means going to a community college or technical institute, right?

Depends on how you learn. You could get some good books and practice a lot on your own.

Or a scripting language. Or something else. What do smaller employers in your area look for?

I don't know. I don't know the market that well.

You can learn about it by looking at job listings for your area.

Can you work on open source or topcoder type projects to gain some experience. (It may not be work experience, but it is better than a course.)

I suppose I could work on some open source project and hope that I can convince a prospective employer that my involvement in that project amounts to legitimate work experience. But I would rather have a job so I can pay the bills, Maybe I should forget about Java and concentrate on a job where I am expected to perform a specific task day in and day out? Do you think learning CAD would help me find a job?

It's to do in parallel. Get a job to pay the bills and learn the skills for what you want to do next outside of work. I don't know what the market is like for CAD.

I guess you are in a catch22 Situation. I would suggest start Coding/working on Sample Projects in Java asap and keep looking for Jobs. I am sure you will get something sooner or later.Or better Still tell them you dont mind working for lesser Pay Package until you prove yourself
