Hi vijay,
If u are a fresher, then what i suggest is , do some small projects on ur own and show a demo of these to the interviewing companies. When u do projects (need not be very complicated), u really come to understand java much more. SCJP makes u r basics clear. Try to gain knowledge on other advanced java technologies like JDBC,Servlets,EJB etc. Knock at the doors of companies and keep trying. I heard that big shots like Wipro,Infosys are hiring big time. May be you can try there thro some reference or direct approach. By the way, if you approaching companies like Wipro etc, make sure that ur basics of Data Structures,OS,RDBMS and Alogrithms are good , other than java knowledge(Iam asuming that u have CS background) . I got stumped quite a few times as i was not prepared with the above mentioned topics when i was a fresher. In case , if u are from a backgound other than CS, then may be u should be prepared to slog a little longer unless u know some one (to act as reference ) in a s/w company.
Good luck, and Best Wishes.

In my opinion, Bangalore would be the best bet. After all it is the IT Capital of India , and Silicon valley of Asia. There are a lot many IT companies out there. So if you have the attitude and the apptitude , you will surely do well in ur job hunt.Good Luck.

probably US equivalent of "entry-level".
On 2nd thoughts , in US i guess anyone with < 3 years of expe is "entry-level"?
In India freshers are those who are looking for their first job after graduating.
PS: Heard SAP Labs is recruting like crazy .(for Bangalorians)
