I finished a Graduate Diploma in Computing last year - with majors in programming (VB6 and Java) and database management (Oracle 9i, SQL) and haven't been able to get IT work because of not having professional IT experience. There are lots of IT jobs around but everyone wants a minimum of 1-3yrs experience, even for a GRADUATE!!! So how does one get that experience, if one can't get a job in the first place?
Incidentally I also have a BSc and an MSc plus 20yrs' work experience in a non-IT field. Perhaps employers think I'm too old??
Thanks a lot for any feedback
