Hi All,

I have 5 years of experience in as400 with two reputed companies. I started my career with a company where work culture was amazing. There were challenges each day. I worked threre for almost three years. Due to personal reasons I had to change location and had to switch to this comapny where i have been working for two and half years. Since quality of work is not that good over here and i can't change my location, I thought of changing my technology so as to get into a good project in the same company. After doing rounds of discussions with seniors I studied and did lot of practice in java and took SCJP 1.6 exam and cleared it with 86%. But because of slowdown there are no internal openings. I am completly frustrated with my present work and I want to get into java asap. This will also help me diversify my skillset. Please suggest what i should do.
Any suggestion will be of great help.
