If you're going to be maintaining other people's code, I'd say you definitly need a little experience AT LEAST to know how the other person thinks. On the other hand, if you can get a job in a place were you'll be writing code from scratch, don't even tell them you don't have experience. I'll be perfectly honest:
If you're good enough to fake it you're probably good enough to starting writing code of you're own!

I'm saying this from the employer's point of view because this has happened to me in the past. I was hiring programmers, and I wanted someone that already had perl XPs (sort-a-speak :o)), and the guy I hired managed to pull it off by saying he had non-professional perl knowledge and he needed was some time to adjust to the job requirements.

I have to admit it wasn't exaclty what I was expecting, but it was close enough! Just make sure that whereever you are, you have a way to log on to

Good luck!
