Hi All,
i recently passed the scjp and was sending resume's out. Because of the recent situation in the market, it seems as though - if you dont have 5+ years of experience.. you simply cant be hired.
I went to consulting firm/school today and they offered me a class for (Java, C/C++, Perl, Oracle, Sybase, Unix combo). They mentioned that I need to get my feet wet with these other languages before I can break into Java. Do you think I should take such a course or do you think I should keep sending out my resume's to uninterested companies. I dont really want to do these other languages but at the same time I need experience! I just feel really discouraged and need some guidance.
Thanks in Advance
Best Regards,
Edmund

If the classes are free, you may want to take them. If only to pass the time while continuing to look.

Actually the classes are pretty expensive $3500.
So I dont know if I can actually get an internship in Java to.
Best Regards,

What type of education do you have? Are you a high school student or a PhD in Math? What type of programming classes have you taken? Do you have any work experience with computers?
