I am a Bachelors of Engineering.
I have a 2 yrs experience in Java, JEE.

I worked in two companies so far. In both the companies some Tragedies happened with me.

1) In my 1st company there was a bond of 2 yrs. I broke that within 1.6 yrs.
(because the company was delaying in giving the salaries (3-4 months delay).)

2)Then I worked with my second company for 4 months, till Aug’2008 & then had to leave the job.
(this is the worst situation I suffered from. I worked on D2K in this company on which I was having no prior experience.
I was knowing PL-Sql. On the basis I started working & my PM told to his senior that I do have an experience of 1 yr in D2k & even knowing that I don’t.
When His senior came to know about that I got fired. I was clueless of this all.)

Since then for 1.2 yrs, I am jobless over till now (recession was there in this period).

I am very strong in J2EE,Servlets,Jsp,MVC-Pattern,struts & jdbc.
Also good at & worked with other skills like sql, pl-sql,d2k & testing.

But now its becoming very hard to explain the situations to the HRs of the companies.
Even after explaining the things to HR I am finding difficult to get the job.

Also want to include that I dont have a very good academic records throughout & had gaps of 2 yrs in 4 yrs of engineering.
My bad past is not leaving me now.

How to handle these situations now. I am suffering a lot due to this.

Hope somebody’s certain help here.

If I were you, I would have stick to the truth and tried to prove my ability in the right way. Fortunately there are quite a few considerate people in the industry and I am sure someone would have listened to me.

Meanwhile I would have started doing freelancing and increasing my network by the ways like linkedin.

I strongly believe that sincere efforts always pay!

All the best!

love your job and not your company;
...because you never know when your company will stop loving you!

I agree with Manoj. Today's HR are too smart. So do not try to hide truth. Tell what is truth and keep trying hard, at least once you would be lucky. I am doing same.

I am doing the same while in the interviews but wanted to have somebody's view.

Now as you said the same I really got encouraged & will go now with more confidence for the next time.

thanks a lot.
