<h2>These positions have been filled</h2> for several months...I really appreciate the quality of responses that this ad was able to generate. Many thanks to the JavaRanch and all of its many skilled ranch hands! The Java certification process is very valuable, and helped me greatly in my career development. Learn your rules, visit the code barn, share some campfire stories, and most of all write code day and night!
I, however, will not be able to help in any job searches from this point on.
I am a developer in central Nj area. My boss has decided in partnership with a very large 'Java friendly' company to bring aboard a large number of entry level Java programmers. The main qualification for these positions are having passed the Sun Java programmer certification exam. If, however, you have prior industry experience, and are working towards certification, you will also be considered for these positions. About a month of training will be provided, and then the plan is to introduce people on projects under capable mentors.
I was brought to the company in October under similar circumstances and have been very happy so far. The positions will be either in the Central New Jersey area or in NY.
As far as the compensation, I would imagine the starting rate could be as high as 55k+ depending on experience.
