heyheni1702415d"Academics have shared stories of foreign students using phone apps to translate university lectures and students in postgraduate IT courses who were unsure how to use a computer or a USB drive."
i would like to hear a story how it happens that a student enrolls in an IT course and doesn't know how to use a Computer.
C0D43367415dSo... my lack of a degree might actually be worth something now 😎😂
nam1788746415dBullshit. I live and studied in Australia.
- None of my fellow student doesnt know how to use PC/USB. I dont know anyone who can't speak english either.
- The standard english test was 7. too high. If you get 7 your english is pretty good. Totally make sense to lower to 5.5.
- Those has low english test scores are required to go through an english class of 3 months. Also, "computer 101" is a required unit of study.
My wife got 5.5 and had to take the english class. She graduated and works for Deloitte, whats wrong with that?
mundo03475115dDid you know "programmer" is officially a mid range career? IQ wise I mean.
You could be below average and be a good "programmer"
You are welcome.
Nanos687615dI'm reminded of someone I knew who had just finished their computer degree thingy, and phoned me to say they had a computer problem and could I come around to fix it.
Sure I said.
When I arrived, they asked me to tell no one about their problem..
So, the problem was...
They didn't know how to plug it in !
Seriously, monitor cable goes here, keyboard plugs in there, a few more holes filled, and wham, all working.
Don't they cover the basic's anymore..
Anyhow, he offered me $50 for my time, which I at first refused, but a friend of his said in his culture, it would be an insult to refuse again.
So I took the money, which was very useful to me, and went on my way.
I wonder what job he ended up in..
The sad thing is, in one year at university, the two brightest of the computing degree class, one ended up being a CCTV operator and the other sold carpets.
Next year, the brightest ended up being a builder.
Another year, top one ended up selling handbags on a market stall.
Yet another year, painting toys in a factory.
So why aren't these top folk being hired for programming jobs ?
It puzzles me.
