I am a programming junkie who is hoping to have his craving satisfied by landing a Java job. Alas, most of the ranchers (employers) I've been talking to aren't accepting resumes from greenhorns.
So if anyone can lend some advice (or a tip on a job) I'd really appreciate it. You can check on my portfolio and resume at http://server2.denver.iti.edu/pralph
Thanks
Paul Ralph

Paul,
How about you send me the actual resume that you send out, post on internet sites, etc...
I'll take a look at it, and if you aren't a fit for KPMG, I'll give you some pointers.
Thanks,

Paul,
Where are you located? and are you interested in moving to Cambridge, MA. Please send me your resume, and I present it to our Development team. We are seeking the brightest individuals, preferrably born programmers.
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you to all who replied to my post. A double thank you to Jennifer Freeman whose post led to my getting a job at KPMG. I start on Oct. 30th and hopefully it will involve lots of Java.
For the rest of you job searchers -- don't give up! (And feel free to contact these people. )

Paul,
I hope that everything is going well for you at KPMG. I've taken a new position, and am now recruiting for Sun's .COM Consulting practice.
Keep in touch, and let me know how everything's going.
