Hello all.

I have spent the last couple of months studying for the Sun Java
Programmers exam, and I am currently planning to take the exam on the
first week of March.

I started sending out feelers to several jobsites and have recieved
responses in regards to my web development skills and none for Java. I
have been searching and applying for entry level Java positions but I
am not getting any hits.

Does anyone have sugggestions on how to jump into the Java developers
world as an associate/entry level?

Thanks.

The majority of Java work is in the J2EE world, so Java knowledge
plus some Struts/JSF/some-of-the-other-bazillion-java-webframeworks
is probably a good idea.

I would be surprised though if there were absolutely
no standalone Java app work at all. Where are you located ?

Im located in the Baltimore/DC metro area. I see lots of Java postions
posted, and most are J2EE...unfortunately, im not getting any hits. I
started going through the recruiter/headhunter route...and to my
dismay, they keep pointing me towards PHP/SQL/Web Development
positions.

Maybe its my resume...or cover letter, or perhaps the oddly shaped
protrusion, about 10 inches in width about 2 in height, similar to a
mullusk, attached to my upper left eyebrow. hehe.
