    Hi,

    I've developed two web apps in C# and I have 8 other projects in Java along wit h some projects in Javascript.

    Java and C# are similar and browsing through random LinkedIn profiles, I seen a person who was a Java developer and now a C# developer.

    Will two projects be enough along with the Java projects to get into junior C# developer, programmer interviews?

    I've applied for 10 junior C# jobs yesterday.

    The number of projects doesn't matter at all. It's what you've done in those projects that matter.


    Think from the employer's point of view. To do that, research the company, what technology do they use? Are your skills relevant? Will you be able to do the job?

    I appreciate that Graduate and Junior can be interchangeable terms but to some companies, Junior means someone with around 2 years of professional experience. Graduate usually means no experience. Make sure you apply to the right jobs.

    To make those projects credible, make sure those projects actually have a real user. Be it a friend or family, or even GitHub. Delivering software to yourself doesn't mean much.
