High Demand Java Jobs
The unflinching pace of IT has collided with the explosive markets for mobile devices and new media to form a mountain of demand for programming jobs, most notably Java Developers. In fact, according to Dice’s recent survey earlier this year, Java is the most wanted software skill out there. But what does this mean?
Brush Up. Seize this opportunity to deepen your skill set in Java. It's also smart to broaden it throughout as many fancy new mediums as possible to maximize your hireability.
Move Up. With high demand can come higher salary, but higher responsibility, too. While technology builds the demand, it can also create a talent gap. If you sell your boss on the idea that you’re ready to move up with position and commensurate salary, make sure you really do know your stuff well enough to live up to it. Otherwise, another developer who lives and breathes Java may end up filling your shoes.
Button Up. Time to shake the dust off your résumé and tighten up your career image a bit. Getting a professionally written résumé can help. Plus, it can teach you how to tailor your résumé to each job opportunity. Making preparations now will make it easier to jump when the right position comes along—and hasten that golden opportunity, too.
Narrow Down. Opportunity abounds, which is a good thing. On the other hand, it can be overwhelming when trying to do your job search alone. Get the help you need to find the right match for you and filter out the positions that could be a waste of time.
