  • I'm afraid IT is far too broad a discipline these days to make a blanket statement about what skills are needed to break in.

    That said, a quick search on any job board indicates, "if you know Java, you're golden."

    • Fair point. So I could narrow the question down to "what's the minimum skills you need to get an entry-level programming position?"

      As for Java, I suspect you're right, but while I know the language (somewhat), I don't know the market other than to say "huge".

    • Pretty much all the Java jobs I see require knowledge of particular Java libraries, not just of the language.
