I graduated with a bachelor's in CS in May 06. For about 3 years, I worked as a technical resource but dealt mainly with database development. I started a new entry level job as a java developer about a year ago, but feel like I'm not progressing much in my career. How long should one stay in an entry level position?
I am currently majoring in computer science. I have learned the basics of java and C++, however I certainly do not feel confident saying I "know" those languages.
My question is, what should I learn to land an entry-level job as a software developer? I feel like most job requirement list 4-5 languages, but what specifically in these languages should I know how to do? What languages and concepts should I know thoroughly? And, if you can recommend some books to learn from, that would be helpful as well.
What I would like to know is what kind of jobs can you get in Canada/US if you know C language and assembler and know how to combine those 2 languages and work with hardware such as putting together circuit boards, etc.
Is this enough to get started in an entry level position at least?
I want to get into IT and the 2 year program I am thinking about includes these topics.
With an associates degree in IT specializing in web design. Basic Java, advanced HTML, CSS, PHP and other programing languages and roughly two years experience. My degree is in web design, but with actual programing and scripting knowledge, would I qualify for a web developer position?
What are the low end salaries for an entry level and how is the market in the south side?
I am currently applying for jobs and I would like to know what things I should know for that position.
I am applying for an entry level software developer,web developer, analyst position.
On my application I said I knew C#, Java, Html, php,asp.net,sql. You know things of that nature.
What technical things would I need to know for the interview on these topics and other general knowledge questions for an person in my position.
As someone with no formal college education, what majors/classes would i have to take to become a video game developer? I dont have access to good big schools, I've grown up with video games all my life and I really want to make my own. Any tips would be great.
What are some of the initial steps I can take to get an entry level job in IT?
I am a sophomore computer science major currently hoping to find a job in programming when I get out of school. I know that, these days, a simple degree will likely not be sufficient to find a steady job, and that I probably ought to graduate with internships and certifications completed. Does anyone have suggestions as to which certifications would be most helpful and would look best on a resume? Also, in which order should I attempt to master these languages? My school's program has started us in Java.
Recently I've been thinking about jobs, and I'd like to look into the IT side of things, but I know close to nothing about what sort of jobs there are with computers...
What job titles are there where you're
1. Working with computers
2. Get a comfortable/good/great pay
Last note, I don't want to do web design.
What are the prog. languages reqd for professional console gaming?
Also what should be the order in which i learn them?
Few game designing softwares?
Does working as a game tester first help for game devs?
Is it recommendable to start as a lone wolf?
I am currently handing out my resume to a few people who may help me find a job. My question is, since I am not sure what sort of positions there might be, what sort of default objective can I put? I don't want to put any specific job interest incase it minimizes opportunities. Or do I have to put one at all?
I'm talking about fresh out of university--BS / Computer Information Systems, no experience, Java and Oracle certified. Also, any advice for getting that first job and the much needed experience?
Ok, so i need some advice from somebody who is in the software development or game development field. I was wondering how much knowledge do you need to know about a programming language to get an entry level job? and what will I be doing? I am trying to do software development or game development and I hear all kinds of things. I am currently learning C++ as a first language, and i have mastered simple stuff like "cin, cout", arrays, 2d arrays, functions, class, struct, loops, and some other basic things. I've learned how to play with digits and strings, i made tic tac toe with C++. but when i think of game development, i think of mobile apps or xbox, which look WAY better than the black screen when I program. what i am saying is... how does learning the stuff i am right now tie with the nice interface that games and software has? and what can i even do with the skills i have? it seems like i cant do anything with it. I was told that C++ is out dated and people now use UNITY3d? i believe its a high level game engine? is that really what game developers use? i thought you needed to be a master at C++? just need some input. thanks. im confused i know :[
Joseph - i see. well yeah, i was told by my teacher at school the reason why he teaches C++ is because its hard and you run into way more problems than other languages, thus you will love programming in other languages once you've learned C++. and because its object oriented. I guess im just trying to jump the track too much. what i am trying to get at is that why do game developers call themselves "developers" when they just use an engine to do all the programming for them? it seems all too easy compared to writing in C++ using a compiler. people can literally make a game app on an android using unity3d, and probably not know anything of C++? so why do people need to know the programming language? or why don't more people do game development? since its that easy using tools like that?
Am a fresh BE (Electronics & Telecom).I am confused abt my career
whether to choose IT(JAVA developer) or Telecom(BTS installation ,RF engineer,Maintenance etc).
I know that JAVA is good it also gives opportunity to go abroad but I don’t know abt telecom field.

I am an entry level JAVA Developer from the last 2 months, and now it is compulsory to learn an appropriate Database Management System. As Oracle is the official DBMS used with JAVA Language, I have decided to learn it instead of SQLite, SQL Server and etc. I am new to DBMS, therefore I need a Beginner's book on Oracle which should be informative and easy to understand step-by-step leaning type. Please I need some good suggestions.
