This is annoying, two mail with same contents.
this explains why thing are not working for you. Be a bit patient while
group replies to you mail.
Besides your focus is wrong, please try to learn as much as you can rather
just thinking about the job.
Yes most companies wont take you until you have relevant experience and/or
you got a patch submitted upstream.
so, i would suggest start working with user space stuff for some company and
in the mean time hone your skills.

My faq page on newbies will soon be up, you can get more info from there.
