Hi dear all,

I want your kind help for the problem I'm facing while the interviews.
I'm searching for a job currently and finding a bit difficult to get.

I'm a Nov'2005 pass-out(4 years past).

experience as:-
2 yrs-total(IT)-(3 months in testing,1.8 yr in Java) &
1.5 yr of recent gap due to health problems(since last 5 months now again in touch with java).

during my 1st job I had training on java, sql, plsql for almost 1 year.
after which I was in real development for 8 months in Java.
I'm ready & flexible to learn new technologies & expert in what I already have.

recruiters ask me for spring/hibernate/struts/web-services as well. Of cource I want to learn all these but

At this stage
I don't have experience on all these?? How can I handle this situation??

thank you for giving your precious time.

Get involved in some OpenSource projects that use these technologies. Try to code as much so that you get a feel of these frameworks.

Not unless they are using them. The only way to gain experience with a technology is to use said technology. If that means you get to during your paid work then great. If not, you'll need to spend your own time learning them, writing code, asking questions, etc. At least that way, when asked in an interview, you can tell them you have some sort of experience. But make sure you are honest about what that experience is. I've worked with a lot of people that passed a test but didn't really have the hands on experience and it was a disaster.

-- Learn the fundamentals.
-- Try some tutorials.
-- Work on self-taught projects and/or apply it in open-source projects.
-- Add them to to your resume.

Having some familarity or exposure is better than having nothing at all.

Are you paraphrasing me?

Actually you have complete two years development experience. Unit testing is part of development ( does not matter if it is manually tested or tested with some tool ). Training is also part of actual development experience.

My advice is in interview do not say that you have only 8 months development experience, 1 year training and three months testing. When recruiter calls you, and ask you your experience , answer should be two years. That is what you should say in interview. People do not do continuous development. Sometimes they do testing, sometimes they get involved in getting or giving training. That is also experience. So your experience is 2 years, answer these questions properly.

And make sure that is what you mentioned in your resume.
