I am taking my second Java course this semester CSC-251 (advanced Java). I took introduction to computer programming last summer. With three programming courses under my belt will I be able to find a job out there in the real world?
For a little background information about myself. I am a 52 year old electrical contractor and has experienced a shrinkage of business in the last 4 - years. Ideally, I would like to find computer programming work that will allow me to incorporate my knowledge of the electrical industry with the programming industry.
Right now I would like to find a job as a programmer and keep taking programming courses.
Do you have any recommendations on courses that I should take? Do you recommend that I take the Java Certification exam after I finish my advanced Java course? My school offers Enterprise Java, should I take it?
Do you believe that I can find a programming job right now?
Thanks for the input and have a great new year ! ! !
