Hi,
I am a Denver-based web/Java developer, and I am currently looking for an entry-mid level Java developer position. I am a recent graduate, but I already have a great deal of practical experience gained through full-time employment in the Internet field throughout my college years. I have passed my SCJP exam, am working on my WebSphere certification, and can claim some professional experience with J2EE.
I have no illusions about the current IT climate and am not looking for a lot of money--merely an opportunity to prove myself. I am very open to relocation--especially to Austin, TX, but I would gladly consider anything worldwide :-D. Just ask my references: give me a chance and you won't regret it!
Thanks for your consideration--any leads, advice, resume critiques, etc. would be most welcome!
