Since you are coming out of being a student, you should be okay to have your income accepted as what it will be. You may need to get a first or second paycheck, but I don't think that you are going to have to be there for 2 full years before you can qualify.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

You've been given a lot of good information already, but if there is one thing that I would stress...it would be to talk to a lender NOW. They can inform you of all your options, and get you headed down the right road so you're ready to buy when the time comes.
So many buyers wait until the last minute, and then they're unhappy when they're unable to purchase a home when they want to! Information is POWER!
Good luck to you!
First, I would recommend you talk with a lender and have them review all your information. Then they can advise you on what is best for your particular situation. Financing rules have been changing and alot is based on your credit scores. Normally, if you are starting a new job, but in the same line of work you can qualify as soon as you start on the job, and he can get verification of his position for the lender. But, again things change quickly.
I just had a client who qualified for their mortgage with only 1 week on a new job, as it as the same type of work as they previously had done for the last 2 yrs.
All the Best to You!!!
