Oh, so you think a degree should make employers come begging you to take their money for the privilege of your company and unique skill set?

Snap out of it mate. The global economy is shit at the moment. It's the time for entrepreneurs to grab opportunities. Stay busy, do some volunteer work. Realising that there are plenty of people worse off than you will improve your outlook, and that will improve everything in your life.

MSc. is going to add jack shit to your skillset; it's more theory. Better off going to a practical college as they will teach you how it's done and how to apply it. On the other side, some employers say they prefer a MSc. or MEng. but will actually only hire the person with the masters
>>
>>59824823
For CS you don't even need a fucking internship to get a job (though maybe you do for some of the name-brand SV companies), you just need a CS degree and a substantial project portfolio hosted somewhere that clearly demonstrates your abilities. There is a serious dearth of competent programmers and some companies are even willing to overlook certain personal flaws you may have that would spell doom for you as a job candidate for any other kind of job just to get a programmer who knows what they're doing.

You are probably autistic as fuck, lack charisma, didn't take advantage of internships or you aren't really invested in your field (going to programming conferences / coding jams / etc).

I have not even finished my degree (same thing computer science) and already got a couple of job offerings, I picked one of them in Australia and that's what I'm doing right now from home while I work on my thesis.

Even with little experience I managed to land a job thanks to some programming conferences and game jams I went to, just don't sperg out during interview, be charismatic and prove you know what you do.

There is no lack of jobs in this field. I recommend you to look outside your city and country even, it's fucking computer science you can work literally anywhere from home.

I knew quite a few people who got computer science degrees and couldnt find a job. However it pretty much had nothing to do with the subject matter of the degree not being relevant. They almost always refused to learn a skill such as Web Design/Programming, Database programming/SQL, or practice embedded programming. It was always muh Java people that couldnt learn anything outside of school.

>>59825846
It is.

In my country you have 2 versions of universities one more practical one more theoretical. Theoretical degrees earn more and are more appreciated in general and often are harder to complete they don't need to do an internship. With every practical degree this is a must. From what I've seen on the work floor they often get forced to work harder than everyone else while getting paid nothing.

That's why I say screw internships. There are not enough internship spots for some of these practical degrees which just promotes treating interns like garbage.

If you do a decent degree and look representative you shouldn't have too much problems finding a job on level with exceptions of specific degrees and old age.

You majored in computer programming. It's really a tradeskill, like automotive or HVAC or something.

It depends who your manager is and how your team is structured. There's people within my org who work 9-10 hours a day and then may work even more when they get home.

Meanwhile, I walk into the office anywhere from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM (manager doesn't give a fuck since I always get my shit done) and once 5:30 PM hits I close my laptop lid and leave.

I guess if you're doing actual coding or QA you're pretty much fucked with a shit work/life balance since it's always "crunch time" for you. If you're on the publishing side you have a better chance of avoiding that hole.

The State of Texas will hire literally anyone with a clean criminal record more than $30,000/yr with the full gamut of benefits and more paid time off than you can actually use, and the job doesn't really require anything more than filling out a bit of daily paperwork and yelling at niggers.

https://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/divisions/hr/hr-home/employment.html

Training is a complete joke and only takes a few weeks. There are dorms at the training academies and at many of the units, and there are also $4000 bonuses for anyone willing to sign a contract to work at an understaffed facility for a year.

The job kind of sucks and the pay could be better but it's one of the only jobs out there where it's a guaranteed hire, you get paid a living wage, and being racist at work is not only not going to get you fired, but is expected.

All you have to do is sign up for a testing date and show up at the testing center.

Either you are fucking trolling or you don't deserve a job. You look like you avoid doing anything beneficial if you can speculate even just a little that it might be more trouble than it's worth. I would never hire you just on the basis of your first excuse much less the next two. I don't hire people based on skills as much as attitude (because a person with the right attitude can build skills quickly) and your attitude is shit. You need to take risks to succeed and you're not willing to take any - and guess what, someone else will.

Very simple. Electrical engineering overlaps significantly with computer engineering.

Same basic (Statics, materials, advanced math, thermodynamics) and advanced (Circuits, electronics and signals) courses that are required for both, while learning a bit more physics and mechanical theory for the electrical engineering degree and a lot more computer science for the computer engineering degree.

Yeah, just go, don't dither any more. I noticed you said this:

>Kind of want to go back to college to get a degree but I'll be like 30 by the time I'm done.

This shows that you worry if something will be worth it before you go for it, which seems to say that getting up and doing something causes you a lot of pain, which is a major cause of procrastination. DON'T WORRY YET, BECAUSE YOU CAN GET OVER THAT. Just see each time that you find yourself thinking that way as an opportunity to fight it, and after a while it will be a habit. Read the Albert Ellis book on procrastination and others that will help you.

Getting started late is not necessarily a minus if you can demonstrate that once you decided to do this, that you have a record of decisive action from that point, and it's not just part of a pattern of dithering and procrastination.

When you're in college, join clubs like the student ACM or IEEE and make sure you're doing more than the minimum necessary. Make work for yourself just to see if you can do it. See tasks as interesting challenges, that sort of thing. Join a hackerspace. And try to get an internship every time. I also suggest the GTD time management system.

Just start now, 24 isn't that old. You don't want to be looking back when you're thirty having done nothing.

Lying in bed so its kind of a nuisance to type long msgs. But depending on what Im doing it might be just fucking around with excel and the firms financials to get a grasp of our target. It might be doing powerpoints/documents on what we've found. Interviews with clients & presentations. I'm more of an M&A/valuation guy so I mostly look at their documents and fuck with excel, and complement any information gaps through management interviews. More senior guys go through what I've found, we work a solution and I plug it in to see how it'd fare, then we look at the result, revise etc

Ya. Track your numbers. Its super important for future interviews and getting your resume past the HR filter in other jobs.

After I was able to fudge a couple years sales numbers and customer service scores on my resume, I ditched that bullshit and went for better money.

My first job after school as at a call center that tried to be like google in terms of casual dress, free food, fitness center, playstation in the common areas, etc. That still couldn't keep people from quitting every week en masse. I still hear commercials for job openings on my Jewdora radio years later.

Besides the fact that it's stupidly written, why do you even need a special function to check if a number is negative? num < 0 is only three characters. (if you like to put a space between your operator and operands).

I see this shit all the time and it pisses me off. Someone at work wrote a function to grab information out of a specific multidimensional array rather than just declaring a variable to reference the sub-array you need at the moment. This goes beyond being unable to program, since they are at least churning out code, this is them being unable to fucking reason at even a basic level.

Someone else wrote a fucking class that was made up of nothing but declarations of variables that each contained a numeric ID of a list of customers. Mustve been about a hundred of them. Sort of like an enum. That wouldn't been OK, a little awkward but at least not retarded.

Then, when he wrote a fucking function to get each and every one of those IDs. getMailingListID(), getHotListID() etc.

If that wasn't enough, in the class where he used those IDs, he wrote a function for each list. addCustomerToHotList() addCustomerToMailingList(). They were all exactly the same except they called a different "helper" function that got the ID.

He said he was making his code "maintainable."

You fucking cunt.

Employers are bending over BACKWARDS for IT folks. Entry-level as a developer is ~$55k, entry-level as a sysadmin/network/dba is close to the same.

Why haven't you talked with a recruiter? There are a TON of recruiters out there that will do anything to find you a job. Call a recruiter and you'll have a job in 2-days.

A developer at work just got fired last month for masturbating in one of the stalls of the men's restroom. He had a job 3-days later. No shit. 3-days for a guy who just got fired for moaning during his epic 45min masturbation sessions in a public restroom!!!

Developers routinely walk into our CTO's office and say, "X company will do Y for me, what will you do?" and it's on the CTO to keep the talent! The CTO is giving assholes $40k raises on a whim because it's so exceptionally difficult to find IT talent right now.

If you can't capitalize on that, then you need to walk your fucking ass into traffic and end it.

Not really. Bubble sort is great when you need to keep a list sorted constantly, and most of the times you run the function it will will result in no change or only one change, like when sorting a scene for alpha blending in 3d graphics. When there's only one change, insertion sort has to iterate twice-once to find out if the list has become unsorted, and again to find the proper place for the out-of-place item.

Not necessarily. If you don't pussy out as a mere programmer, you study:
Theory of Computation
Turing machines, entscheidungsproblem, P=NP complexity, algorithm optimization, graph theory, fuck tons more.

Granted, pioneers like John McCarthy had math degrees, but I'm sure that getting into tenure track CS academia can be done by CS grads ergo it CAN be a more rigorous path than you presume.

You're an idiot. Bubblesort is often used after a partial quicksort, since on partially sorted data Bubblesort can be extremely fast compared to more complex sorts.

Call multiple recruiters because each recruiter has different clients (mostly).

If a recruiter asks any questions like, "Would you be willing to bend on your salary of $xx/yr?" - that's a red flag and you should ditch them. Good recruiters will tell you, "I can get you $xx/yr this week."

Understand that you are what's being sold to the recruiter. They're not your friend or partner. They're trying to sell you ASAP for a paycheck. Say you know .NET and want a .NET job, a recruiter that sends you to a PHP/Ruby/Python firm needs to be let go. They think they can pull one over on you, so ditch them.

Find a place where you're a "cultural fit" and go from there. Fitting in with the crowd can be a huge benefit going forwards. You'll build lasting friendships with co-workers and will expand your knowledge of your profession faster if you like going to work on Monday.

Interview 5-times per year. If I really like an employer, I'll interview 3x's/yr. The market changes faster than the shit software you'll be working on. Be sure to capitalize on it as fast as possible. If you've done it right, your first 10yrs should be filled with 10-15 employers, each offering more money, more perks, and an obvious trend of learning and growth that makes you indispensable to the next employer.

Now i'm approaching 26 and in the middle of a much more competitive program, so hopefully I fixed it up before its too late.

At least if I figure out something by the time i'm 30 i'll consider myself sorta well off.

>A surprisingly large fraction of applicants, even those with masters' degrees and PhDs in computer science, fail during interviews when asked to carry out basic programming tasks. For example, I've personally interviewed graduates who can't answer "Write a loop that counts from 1 to 10" or "What's the number after F in hexadecimal?" Less trivially, I've interviewed many candidates who can't use recursion to solve a real problem. These are basic skills; anyone who lacks them probably hasn't done much programming.
Speaking on behalf of software engineers who have to interview prospective new hires, I can safely say that we're tired of talking to candidates who can't program their way out of a paper bag. If you can successfully write a loop that goes from 1 to 10 in every language on your resume, can do simple arithmetic without a calculator, and can use recursion to solve a real problem, you're already ahead of the pack!

Maybe it's you OP, because everyone I've known who has a degree in CS has gotten a job right out of college.

>>59834208
The insertion sort does not iterate the list twice. For a single change on a previously sorted list, the insertion sort will iterate up to the point where the out-of-place value is located, then backtrack by shifting the greater values over until the position where the out-of-place value belongs. The more out-of-place values you have, the worse the bubble sort becomes in relation to the insertion sort, but for just a single out-of-place value this has merit.
