    @Lor-inc that's really all the degree was. School didn't teach me anything I need to know for this job besides the very, very, very basics. The degree got me in the door though, rather annoyingly

    @AlgoRythm I wish I had done it the way you did instead of getting the degree first, uni only filled me with doubts and confused me, I've learned more useful stuff in a few online courses than on the entire time in uni.

    Remember to mention it in your CV !

    It can help you to get an interview if you use keywords.

    I put "I have a degree of understanding of computers" :-)

    Then at the end of the interview, the guy asked me "What is your degree in again?"..

    > The degree got me in the door though,

    Reminds me of a friend of mine (Dead now..) who used to just forge a copy of anything he wanted like that to get a job.

    Then learn on the job..

    He never got found out, which surprised me.

    But then, someone else I knew, who got fired from their job because someone noticed after 3 months they couldn't do it.. (Since they lied in their CV.)

    Then got rehired by the same company using a different name, and no one noticed !

    Well, I did..

    And the guy told me that he hoped to do another 3 months before anyone noticed..

    10 minutes later security was throwing him out of the building. :-)

    Lesson there, don't brag to people you hardly know when you break the rules, they might snitch on you !

    Joke is on my institution when they hired me. I have a degree in C.S: Calligraphy Studies.

    Haha I just wrote B.S in CS and they bought it SIKE putos!

    @AleCx04 that sounds like an amazing thing to double major or major/minor in
    I would love to get a minor in some offbeat field like Climate Studies just for that

    @RememberMe I have found that in regards to Computer Science, a lot of the interesting things happen with people from different backgrounds that apply Computer Science to their respective domains. Music, Physics, Math etc etc there are a lot of very interesting things happening by people who do not have C.S just as their main background. It did not occur to me until recently in which I am seeing a lot of people work as practitioners of deep learning doing something interesting in their respective fields. My original plan of study wasn't even Computer Science, it was music :P for example, and I can see a lot of benefit of mixing both items together to do interesting things.

    I sometimes consider getting a different major in either biology (one of my fav subjects in H.S) or music, but at this point I need to continue going above in terms of C.S to get to the position that i want inside of my institution.

    @AleCx04 whoa, bio was my favourite in high school too, I almost went into biosciences but decided to switch to computers because I liked that just a teensy bit more.

    I see no reason why I have to stop studying after graduating, planning to go for a course in bio or space sciences after I finish masters. No idea where it'll lead me, but it's a cool topic.

    Oh, what in music? General/composition or performance in a particular instrument?

    @AleCx04 ideally we would just pick up programming languages as a means to an end in pursuit of our passions.
