Hey. If anybody out there has a job as a programmer (or, hell, just if you do it as a hobby), I'd really appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to help me out. I've always been interested in computers but never really taken the time to learn any programming. However, I did have a job opportunity fall into my lap recently, and since it seems like a great deal for me, I think that I'm going to take it. It's a programming job for people who have no experience with programming at all. It's a training program for people with college degrees who haven't programmed before, but still have computer skills and a desire to learn. I seem to fit the bill pretty nicely. And after I complete the 3 month training program (paid), I receive a full time position with the company, as well as a raise. I seem to fit the bill pretty nicely. If you'd like to see more details of the position it's right here. All I have to do pretty much is pass the aptitude test on Monday, and I'm in. The description that I received today says this about the test: Anyway, if anybody has any advice on the sorts of questions that get asked in a "Programming Aptitude Test," it'd be pretty cool if you could clue me in on some tips. Do they suck? Are they pretty much common sense? And, for a more long term question, what's it like having an IT position like this for a living? Is it super fucking hard? Does this seem like a good opportunity to you? What do you wish that people had said to you before you started out? Etc? Thanks guys.
