Yes,but recruiters need to be given a reason for any gap present.
Searching job sites will you an idea as to what skills employers expect from a 0-1 yr experience programmer.
If you know most of that you could work in the industry with your classmates from 2010 batch.Or else you could get in as a fresher.

There's no gap. Rajiv worked for the family business. I expect his CV says this. It's not tech experience which makes him entry level/fresher. But that's ok. It's not like he's been trying to find a tech job for two years and failing at it.
I don't think he will get a comparable job to a 2011 grad though as he has a year less experience. There is a huge difference between no experience and 1 year. It's not just a matter of skills either.
