But most established companies do not.

I'm going to let /g/ in on a secret, the reason why all you freshly graduates are unable to find a job is because you are young and inexperienced (in life, as well as with work). No boss wants to hire someone arrogant brat younger than their own kids for something critical to their business. Startups are the only notable exception I can think of, but then again, 8 or 9 out of 10 startups fail during the first 4 years.

Of course, being too old and looking for jobs is not good either, because nobody wants a hire that is close to retirement age. Voluntarily quitting your job at 50 and hoping you'll find something else is outright stupid.

>> No.68665736

Try learning a little bit of CS on your own. Being a programmer whilst hating programming is a living hell. Make sure it's something you want to pursue before you put major money into it. I can't speak for other countries, but in America, if you can get a degree in CS, it helps a ton and makes learning very easy, but isn't exactly necessary. You can probably get away with a coding bootcamp and a web dev job if you're okay with <80,000k salary. It's not impossible to climb the ladder and be a self made, valuable programmer from nothing, even at your age, but college will streamline it. Just make sure it's something you actually want to spend the rest of your life doing. It's sad to see shitty programmers filth codebases because they have zero passion.

Browser hijackers, such as Google.com, are a type of malware that operates in your browser without your consent. Browser hijackers get added to your browser as browser add-ons, plugins, or extensions. Typically, Google.com and other browser hijackers invade your browser when you click on links of malicious websites distributing the program, or when you download other free software where it is bundled in the software’s installer. There are also more sophisticated types of browser hijackers that automatically install by exploiting your browser’s security holes without any actions on your behalf####
Once it infects your browser, browser hijackers like Google.com start controlling your browser behavior. It will alter your browser settings in unwanted ways, such as changing your default home page and search engine. It also attempts to modify the privacy settings of your browser to make your browser more vulnerable to other types of malware, specifically other browser hijackers, adware, and toolbars.

Feels bad man. I've applied to more than 75 jobs, with probably about a five out of six split for local versus out of state. People just aren't hiring, which I know is bullshit because 75% of the jobs are for people with years of experience... and very few if any for entry level.

No one "needs" to get a job in software either, but a degree is by far your best shot seeing how HR will throw your application straight in the trash during the screening process without a technical person ever reading it if you don't have one.

Of fucking course your degree is irrelevant when applying for your third or fourth job, but getting the first job is the tricky bit and you need to be all sorts of exceptional to manage to catch an employer's eye if you don't meet the minimum requirements exactly.

Why is it that so much of university feels like this?

There is a gap between the "academic" world and the "trade" world, the "trades" are seen as blue collar or lower jobs. And yet if someone becomes an electrician or plumber for example, almost all of their time is spent exclusively training with tangible skills they will need for their job.

It's so weird to me college has this reputation of being for "smarter" people, but seems to demand less in the way of actual SKILLS. it's more "fluff" so to speak. and more built on pretense and formalities etc. then real world practical training.

32 here.
It's too late.
I am stuck doing low-level QA work.
I got lucky in my 20's and worked for a start up where I became the "go to guy" basically I was a glorified sys-admin but I worked on many teams just coordinating stuff, got to a point where I was so burnt out and sick of management I left at 30, had to start over and now I'm pretty stuck and dated as far skills go. I haven't had steady employment in the last two years. if you get in somewhere just have a min-max value of yourself, make sure management is aware of this too,.
otherwise they will work you to the bone.

Genuine answer? Anything before 21.

21 is when neuroplasticity falls to deadly levels, making it incredibly hard to learn anything in the realm of math, science, or language. Simply put, you won't truly learn programming or another language if you start after 21. You can be decent, but never good. I'd still go for it, though. If your IQ is high enough, you'll still be better than a good chunk of people.

Keep in mind any certifications or even a degree won't guarantee a job. You still have to go through the resume filtering and interview and if you're lucky you get the job. I got my A+ during HS and it got me a job with my school, but in terms of other locations it was hard. It all comes down to location if you live in a big city you'll most likely get one but living in a small suburb(like me) decreases the chances. If you are in your late 20s don't bother going for the A+ instead just learn the material and go for a higher cert like CCNA, CCNP, MCSE, or any other in high demand certs.

The age you are thinking about. You are the only one that can limit yourself.

Seriously, it's not a matter of age, it really depends on the person.

I'm getting into web dev now and I'm 29 and I wouldn't be doing better if I was 18.
10 years ago I didn't have my mindset set for this neither were the resources as available, so I can't really blame myself for not starting earlier but I could really blame myself in 10 years for not starting now.
