It's no secret game, I made a python application that now has about 2000 downloads. Every programmer I have asked to check out the application(even some authors of major python libraries) was enthousiastic about the application. Admitted its scale is modest (about 500 lines) but it is an application every python user can use. I did not work together with anyone to make it though.

I've also noticed that some employers really pay attention if they can see that you stay at a job for a long while. That is also a major concern, if I would get a non-programming job now I would quit as soon as I finish projects that adequately show my skills in the required technologies. That means that I would probably not stay very long on that job, reducing my perceived loyalty for an employer.

Once you get that interview, what you say and do has far more baring than any piece of paper. I am not so much concerned for the interview itself, rather for the initial resumé screening procedure.
