Hello All! I have an opportunity for those of you out there who are Sun Certified Programmers / Developers and are having problems finding work because you don't have any project experience. My site www.Angel-Web.co.uk has nothing on it right now. I'd like to give you the chance to help me change that! The site is currently hosted at www.mycgiserver.com which means we can use Servlets, JSP, JDBC amongst other things. Basically this is how it'll work. 1. If you're interested and meet the criteria (detailed below) e-mail me mail@Angel-Web.co.uk and let me know the following details. a) How I can see your certifaction results on the Sun database? (To clarify that you are certified). b) How long you've been looking for Java development work since being certified. What kind of work are you looking for? c) Any other projects you have completed (eg. What stage are you at in the Cattle Drive? )Do you have your own site? d) The name under which you are registered at Javaranch.
2. If you meet my criteria you'll be shortlisted and I'll e-mail you to let you know and ask a few more questions. 3. Those chosen will be in a kind of resource pool and as soon as an idea comes to me for the site I'll ask anyone I think is interested if they want to do it. The projects will be small - medium sized .. nothing as fantastic as a whole bulletin board just yet. So they will almost all be one-person jobs with me acting as a Project Manager. You will be expected to produce a design (using UML) before writing any code. The code will be produced according to the Chicken Coop Style guide I WILL nitpick and when you commit to a project you should remain commited until I am completely happy and your work has been put up on the page. The completed code will be considered open source ... so you won't own the copywrite on any code you write. However if you fully compelte a task you will be acknowledged on the site for your work and you have use me as a reference on your resume. The criteria (please understand my aim is to help as many people as I can but I have to set some restrictions or I'll not be able to choose) 1. Must be SCJP / SCJD certified and able to prove it. 2. Have not been able to get Java development work because of lack of experience. That's all I ask ... I have other criteria I'll use to shortlist people.
Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.

Excellent news bill bozeman has agreed to also offer opportunities at his site. www.javaworkshop.net ... so there should be lots of work available ... do still use the process described above to apply though ... bill and I will sort out the division of work.
Congrats Angela & Bill for coming up with this proposition! I hope some of you Ranchers will avail of the situation and start putting in practice all the Java Web skills that you have not been remunerated for yet, but will be in the near future thanks in part to this idea! -- Sheriff Tony

Hi! Please count me in, I am sitting for the certification on the 20th of this month, used to work in India as a web developer( I too don't have a technical degree) but am in the US right now on a dependant visa and seeing the current trends in the market finding a job seems to be a distant dream! I am also taking an advanced Java course here which covers servlets, JSP, EJB, XML etc. Thanks again for the oppurtunity!

Angela I tried to find how you redirected your site, since I did not like the register.com's redirect, but found your site was not accesible. Please check! Thanks! Roseanne Join our SCJD Study Group when certified [This message has been edited by Roseanne Zhang (edited September 03, 2001).]
