      In general, there is growing evidence that graduating during a recession has long-term impacts on one’s lifetime earnings. As a little bit of good news, it looks like that through mobility it is possible to close the earning gap. My advice would be to get a job in the field you want, even if it’s not a good fit right now and be open to change jobs as soon as the market becomes better.

      Best of luck out there.

              Do they have entry-level positions? All the ones i can see have requirements like

              You have a track record as an engineer in the operations of a large site

              Your knowledge of JVM is deep and you’ve been in direct contact with JVM internals

              You’re knowledgeable about JIT optimization techniques, you’ve wrestled different garbage collector algorithms

                We do hire juniors. You want to look at the general Software Engineer positions. We get many of our entry level positions straight from universities either by hiring on interns after some rotations or recent grads through college recruitment. We also have a program to hire on boot-camp graduates into our Customer Support teams, which are a stepping stone in Software Engineering.

                We definitely fall into the cliche of putting up impossible job requirements in posts, as do many companies. Sometimes it makes sense for the role we’re trying to fill, sometimes not.

                  Ahh, I see. I’m in ca; not as much selection as in the us/eu, so I missed some of the less…postured listings.

                    We have quite a few Canadians on staff, including interns. Just sayin’.
