I am new to Java world .... Just got certified as an OCJP...
Now the thing is i just passed my bachelors degree and don't know the scope of Java through out various industries...

I am interested in coding part of Java and not just testing and maintainance which is more prevalent in IT industries(please correct me if i am wrong ).

Could you all please guide me to become a good Java programmer and in the process get a suitable job related to it with huge scopes....

Sorry if i seem ignorant but i had to put my feelings somewhere and i felt this to be the best platform to do so...


Regards

Welcome to CodeRanch and congrats on your OCJP!

Maintenance often does involve writing code. So does testing for that matter.

Do you have any experience? An internship maybe? If not, try to find something or do a project on your own. THis will help in getting a first job.

Many industries use Java. You can search the job websites for examples. There are also many other programming languages. If you are entry level, why are you "expecting" your first job to be Java. If you got an offer for a Ruby on Rails job, would you turn it down because it wasn't Java?

thanks karthik

For directing me to an answer.. but i could not co-relate it to my question..

As i said in my second reply i have landed a job at a well known consultancy firm as

an system engineer .. but i wanted to gain expertise in gaining concepts of problem

understanding , algorithm and data structures which could build my solid foundation ..

could you refer some excellent books to clear those concepts

That would be highly helpfull
