Guys, I need an advise regarding summer jobs:
I have had this awesome summer job for 2 summers as a mountainbiking guide, which is fun, has awesome perks, and pays relatively well.
But it doesn't really net me any useful experience, so should I seek a job as a programmer instead?
I'm studying first year bachelor's, but I have experience, so I should get a job nevertheless.6
So we were able to do a pre-test in programming I, and if you passed, you would get 70% of grade. Then doing the homework would net the rest 30%.
I passed the test and returned first homework, answer: "Sorry, you haven't been in classes, so you need to defend your work. It will take 10-20 minutes max"
I then informed the professor that I have done the exact same course in open university, and have proof of working as a programmer for 2 years, but it wasn't enough.
So in the fucking defending that took 50 fucking minutes, I had to answer to 15 fucking questions regarding the code.
How on earth am I supposed to remember what 2 fucking lines of code do in a program I wrote 3 weeks ago, if you don't give me the whole code?!?!
Or if Euler's fucking constant is defined in math.h, and why did I define it by myself?
And apparently scattering 50% of the code over 8 pages is sufficient for remembering what the whole programs does!??!?
Oooh and did I mention? I NEED TO GO AND FUCKING DEFEND MY NEXT HOMEWORK NEXT FUCKNG WEEK!!!
Fuck that course7
