true...most companis prefer programmers with at least 2 years of xp. But there's also a lot of other small begining companies that seek newly grads. And sitting on your ass isn't gonna help. do what I did. Go to the companies and tell them that you'll you will work for half the pay just so that they can give you some xp. And if they like you, they will take you as an permenant employee. In this "Game" it's the xp that counts.
Most companies are prefer for the experience programmer rather than the fresh grads. that's why i stuck and i'm still jobless? too shame to talk about it. I'm just staying at home doing nothing
