Skip the first step.

Checked.

Confirmed best career path.

Alternatively you could just get a job while doing your degree, like I did, so when you graduate you also have industry experience.

OP here. I interned 2 months and then they ended up hiring me full time. So yah I agree.

>>52389003
That's what the internship is for.

>>52388955
Post alternative for east Europe.
Keep in mind, we have free Universities that are top level in some fields including mathematics and so on.
But I cant get in CS coz I need at least 5/6 score on my math test back in highschool ( and I had 4), 8 years later I am way way better but I cant prove it, and there is no legal way to overcome this law.

How to make it to the bizz ?

Not quite the same as studying AND working full time though.

Your odds of getting into a reputable university as a transfer student are usually dramatically lower than applying out of HS. This is because transfer students essentially take the place of dropouts.

naw. if you are going for a managerial position then a minor in business is damn str8
>>
>>52389311
They are.

If you pay for certs yourself = you don't have a degree and need some way to get some leverage

Otherwise, if you have a degree, the rule of thumb is to only do certs when your employer pays for them + gives you a bonus/pay raise for completing them
>>
>>52389311
not necessarily. although they are a good idea if you have no degree
>>

You're not going to get hired straight out of college for a managerial position anon, let me just shatter that illusion of yours straight away. And after X years of working in the industry, nobody gives a fuck about your education anymore either.

I work in a company with around 250 employees, where 70 of them are developers. The CTO doesn't even have a college degree at all, and none of the team leads or project managers have any business education. The only people who do are HR and the guys in sales.

They have a 7% acceptance rate m8, not being a total idiot isn't nearly enough.

>>52389551
Then why would a business degree even matter? After your first position, the only thing that matters when you apply for other positions is what you did in your first position, what responsibilities you had and how well you did your job.
>>
>>52389596
because its literally only one more class extra when majoring in IS. why the fuck would you not?

Have you experienced the American education system? Not being a total idiot will pretty much put you in the top 1% of your class.

Don't take courses on programming languages.
Take courses that teach programming and figure out how to apply that using a language.
It is a way to describe your world/problem it is meant to be easy.

You are technically supposed to put in 2 hours for every 1 unit.

Try studying those meme CS fields like software engineering, information technologies, anything remotely pc related.
If that still fails, study to EE/Mechatronics/anything electronics related.

If I was hiring, I wouldn't care for diploma if I were developing apps or some basic shit like that.

I think your github and CV matters more than it.
>>
>>52389926
>lying on the internet
OK kid

If you really were employed, you would know that what I said in >>52389596 and >>52389418 are true and that padding your shitty IS degree with business classes isn't going to help anything.

Anyway,
