    How to improve your odds of finding a job related to Java?

    I'd like to start by saying that i am in no way a beginner when in comes to programming.
    Coding as been my passion since i was 11 and I'm currently earning my bachelor's degree to become a full-time software developer because of it.

    The problem is, I'm a jack of all trades.
    I've learned 12 programming languages but, never mastered any of them.
    I'd like to fix this before finishing school in three years.

    So, here's my question : What should someone fresh out of school know to improve his odds of finding a job related to Java now days?

    Here's what I'm currently learning in college.

    Database : SQL Server, MySQL
    Programming : C#, Java
    Web Development : ASP.NET, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, JSP/Servlets, XML, XSLT, Ajax, PHP.
    Systems : Windows 7, 2008, Linux
    Analyst : Visual Studio, Visual Paradigm, UML

    I've answered my own question.

    Last night, i made program in C# .NET capable of scanning jobs offers related to Java in my area. (Yes, i know, I'm a lazy *******)
    It finds the most often used words and creates a neat graph out of the top 20.

    Apparently, it all comes down to : Java, SQL and ORM (Hibernate)
    See, I knew learning Regex wasn't going to be a complete waste of time.

    It all depends. A lot of the Java I see used nowadays is focused mainly on J2EE, Spring or other enterprise-type applications. Rarely do I see core Java programmers needed but it's still possible.

    I've heard a lot about J2EE and Spring too.
    What do you think i should do?

    Focus my efforts on Java and SQL or focus 50% of my efforts on Java/SQL and 50% on learning frameworks?

    Java - learned
    SQL - learned

    Java EE (J2EE) - to learn
    Hibernate - to learn
    Spring - to learn
    JSF 2.0 - to learn

    With this knowledge, I think I'd have a pretty good chance against most college graduates with little experience.
    The reason being I wouldn't have to be trained as much.
    I also found a list of useful Java EE frameworks I could learn when I'm done.

    Thanks again for making me look deeper into J2EE.
    If I'm lucky, i may be able to find a job, unlike most undergraduates.
