Lets say I am working on technology x in my current company.I want to work for a company working in technology y. I am really passionate about technology y.In order to get a job at this new company,I did some projects in technology y in my spare time. So should I include these independent projects before my professional projects? The new organization likes to hire employees with some experience in their technology.Thats why I am confused on the ordering of my projects?
EDIT: By independent projects I meant projects that I did in my free time(Not for any customer or company).
EDIT2: My independent project is not a small project.Its a large project that took 6 months to complete.I followed a very famous book to complete that project.The book ends with a finished project.The thing is, lets say I developed mobile phones and that company I am applying for develops robots.So I followed this famous book to learn this technology and made a similar robot in 6 months.Ofcourse, their robot would be much more advance than mine as they have been working on it for years.But I created a robot with very basic features ,in order to learn this technology.So is'nt this project more important than my industry work? I am sure my industry work is of no use to them as there is a large difference between the two technologies.
EDIT3: What if that independent project resulted in a publication?
