First for coping neets
>>92174013fuck you first for I love TypeScript xD
>>92173991Post the linkedin listing or you're a larping nigger.
>>92173985>piclegit good advice
>>92173980Yes, that's hardly a resume. Wouldn't print this on toilet paper, it's so shitty I wouldn't be able to tell if I'm wiping my ass or shitting it up.
>>92174022Maybe next time TS anon>>92174026Not doxxing myself, keep coping. It's the truth
>>92174013Why do people assume criticism implies coping or NEETdom?
Just heard down the grapevine that when FAGMAN is gonna warm up the hiring freeze they'll expect applicants to solve 3 LC Hards in 40 minutes.
>>92174069It's linkedin's "ATS compliant" resume it isn't actually meant for humans to read
>>92174072Put the degree in with the completion date, and add a note saying (diploma pending due to administrative issues) or whatever it is that's holding it back. If your status is not officially that it's complete, then put an 'expected' completion date instead.
>>92174078>posting a job ad is doxxing yourself0/8 b8 m8
>>92174114The issue is, I won't be getting it at all, it's done. All I have is a 4 year time debt.
When did the "resume must be 1 page" thing happen? Back in my days it was 1-2 pages, and more = better.
>>92174078What is there to cope about? You're bragging about a getting a job at a shithole with no remote option.
>>92174086They're coping because I told them what happened, and they blew a gasket because they can't handle the reality. So they're coping that I'm just larping>>92174133It would be in this case unironically. My point is that these jobs exist people just need to keep looking>>92174159Wow that's advanced cope, now its not that the job doesn't exist its that it doesn't allow remote. It does though, it's more like hybrid I guess. Able to work remote most of the time but like once every few weeks I'm supposed to show up in the office for meetings. Have to live in the area though
>>92174154You have to explain your situation better if you want to know what, exactly, you should put in the resume, but you can make it count just as much as if it was completed under most circumstances. Just be careful that you can't say you have the degree or 'fail to mention' you don't have it, because that's one thing they DO check during background checks in my experience, even though I've also read a lot of people's accounts that they lied about having a degree and nobody called them out on this.
>>92174157around the point when 1000+ applicants per position became normal
>>92174196>It would be in this case unironically. My point is that these jobs exist people just need to keep lookingYou couldn't even b8 a baby with this weak shit.
>>92174093I've been hearing 6 LCs on Nightmare, 20 mins.
>>92174069>>92174051In my defense, I have no idea what I should and shouldn't put in a resume, I'm particularly scared of writing too much or in too fancy of a template, >>92174101 related. But yeah it's pretty retarded now that I have something to compare it to.>>92174129Thanks.
>>92174237That's only if you beat round 1 on chink mode.
>>92174237With one hand tied behind your back.
>>92174222Sorry that you believe that it being possible for yourself to be employed is bait. Hard to escape the neet life I guess
>>92174133I saw a positively riotous Job Ad (real) that linked to a file on /tg/. I wish I had posted it in these threads.
>>92174114>>92174154Sorry, I mean your advice is right, and obviously I can put it in with any adnotationWhat I'm asking is what'd it look like to a recruiter. Would I be deemed a liar, would they blacklist me or some shit? It feels kinda pathetic to me but If it would boost my chances of getting a job, then yeah>>92174198I didn't turn in my thesis. I guess I'll try putting it in with an adnotation that makes it clear I haven't finished but I've attended the whole course.
>>92174196>My point is that these jobs exist people just need to keep lookingIt would be unlikely for most people looking for a dev job to not encounter the kind of job listing you've mentioned.
how are my fellow 2022-2023 grads coping with "muh heckin job security and high demand!" lie that we were sold? personally I've been playing a lot of red dead online and pestering transexuals on grindr
>>92174404How easy is it to lay pipe on a tranny on grindr? I don't care for them but I'm not having any luck with real women
>>92174157It was a thing even before the internet became commonplace.
>>92174359>I didn't turn in my thesis. You should be able to still do that. Go talk to the relevant authority figures (admissions, any of your profs, guidance, program manager, etc.), they 100% can and very often bend rules specifically in those cases. Hell, they can even bend program requirements for you if you ask (in my days, I did this to replace my forced tranny indoctrination classes for more math classes).Otherwise yes, you can just add a note (just make sure it's very clear, asterisk near the completion date and everything) and say "coursework completed satisfactorly, but thesis not submitted" or the likes.
>people spend 4 years in college to have no skills and can't even make a resumeHow is this possible? When I was taking 4-5 classes per semester I had tons of free time to do anything I wanted even got a job. What the heck are you people doing?
>>92174438Passable or not? You can take a guess
>>92174445Absolutely not. From 2004 to 2014 or so I distinctly remember that it was more pages = better, but still no more than 2 pages.
>3 yoe >only make $85k (at least it’s 100% remote)>FAGMANfags literally make at least double as that as their starting salary>I will never work for a real tech company and make big boy bucksAfter all, why not? Why shouldn’t I kill myself?
>>92174404My poison? Playing fortnite, watching my favorite vtuber, and pretending to work on my videogame that will totally make me a millionaire rockstar. Keep on keepin' on, my friend.
>>92174471I'm guessing passable is as difficult as a real woman and not passable is as easy as a real man.
>>92174438I just ask them if they listen to bladee and other generic troonspeak, ultimately its 50/50 a lot of them are prudes despite sex being their whole identity
>>92174371I just double checked to make sure and it was Linkedin. You'd think so but it's the truth. I'm assuming people just don't want to move to places that aren't big cities or something, you can't really afford to be picky for junior positions these days.
>>92174465In my uni, the "4-5 classes" involved 40 extra hours of work on the class project outside class time for 2 of the 4 years. Only the 1st year didn't require extra work. And that's outside the time required to study. I never had much need for this but others did.Not everyone is lucky enough to attend a nigger uni that's basically a degree mill but somehow is taken seriously because of your skin color.
>>92174465college is a for-profit business in amerimutt land (aka the center of the tech industry)more graduates = more moneyeasier courses + lower standards = more graduates
>>92174404I hate COVID so much it's not even funny. Whatever I'll just keep living with my parents until the market is good I guess. And working on my game that will definitely get finished
>tfw only 290k TC at nearly 24Be real with me bros... it's over isn't it?
>>92174478>make big boy bucks>have to come into an office every day and attend forced diversity and inclusion classes>xe, xir, ze, zer, hi, hir, le, lir>spend 50% of your paycheck renting>get laid off randomly one day
>>92174508Your larp is just too bad for this thread. Try >>>/r/eddit/
I'm about to start an internship while I'm suffering from severe insomnia.What's the lesser evil when I start commiting mistakes or not being able to focus: shut up and seem like I have 20 IQ points less than I have or tell the problem and seem like a weirdo with mental problems?
>>92174538Depends heavily on your manager. Generally the former option is safer.
>>92174537Seriously you do realize how hilarious it is to hear it be called larp when it's reality. They have another similar open position right now, wish I could post it here but again not keen on doxing myself.
>>92174538find out if the company has mental illness quotas, they might want to hire you specifically because youre "retarded" and you can be upfront.
>>92174563>it's real you guys!!11>on linked in, 80-90k, only 5-10 applications, and none of them even have degrees>when even jobs that pay 60k get flooded with thousands of applicants instantly>refuses to show the listing>claims there's tons of those>can't even find one at random that isn't his job to demonstrateTotally real, everyone believes you.
>>92174511I attended a prestigious college, maybe you're stupid or something. >>92174513Yeah but my point is why aren't they using their free time to better themselves or get a job? Are they seriously just going to college, going home, finished assignments, and playing video games the rest of the day?
>>92174534Was that your experience when you worked there?
>>92174523>>92174489heeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyy. I keep seeing anons who have ambition but lack ideas, you need an ideas guy? :3
>>92173985When I finally get hired I'm going to do this.
>>92174603>I attended the prestigious niggerton school of applied niggeryOK nigger
>>92174460Thanks. It's already been a few years since that happened so I'll go with the latter.
>>92174538Try and power through the internship, if you go out due to mental health this early in the game your fucked.
>>92174597Never said there's tons, just that they exist. Finding a random similar position would take an incredible amount of time I imagine, at no benefit to me since I'm already employed. And you'd just make up more cope like >>92174159
>>92174618Says the retard who struggles to complete his assignments. Stop projecting.
>>92174667>I went to a prestigious schools you guys!>has no idea what a class group project ismy sides!
>>92174661I accept your surrender.
I'm starting to see why so many people here struggle to find jobs, they refuse to accept reality and from what it sounds like, only apply to FAGMAN and then wonder why they can't get a job.
>>92174680Nobody even said that. Just because you're low IQ doesn't mean everyone else is.
>>92174745Seems to be a lot of jobless idiots posting right now, all they can do is cope
>>92174738They also can't even learn basic skills or industry coveted skills, and waste their time.
>>92174774>is too dumb to get into a prestigious university>struggles to complete assignments and group projects on time>plays video games in all of their free time>screams at everyone when they aren't being handed FAGMAN jobs
>>92174511Yeah I pretty much worked college like a full time job most of my degree, and I didn't have a ton of group projects. Just lots of lectures, reading, and busywork.
>>92174815That's exactly it, it's sad
How to get a job in tech 2023 edition:> learn python along with web framework flask/django> basic linux skills> git> ansibleEnjoy 80k starting salary
>>92174745When I first graduated, I didn't know it was normal to send out so many applications and never hear back or get rejected. I didn't get my first job until 100+ applications. But not knowing any better, I started getting discouraged at like 20 and stopped applying to learn frameworks and work on projects. Then applied to another 20, get discouraged, go back to making projects, etc.
>>92174855not wrong but you'd be surprised at the people who can pull themselves through college and still struggle with all of the above
>>92174855Alternatively:>learn linux, git, ansible>get your Sec+>now every minimum 50k starting will hire you>career progression is completely linear
Oh man, only 35 more years of this shit
>>92174523lucky you, my dad is kicking me out April 1st (nice prank faggot), gonna have to go back to help desk or waiting tables pretty soon here
>>92174863Same here. I applied to 20ish as well right out of college, got 1 interview and bombed it. Gave up. After another job in a different field, but decided to apply for tech jobs again. Applied to 20+ a day, around 600 applications I got a job (the 80-90k job with almost no competition mentioned earlier in this/previous thread). Have friends who are newer grads making the mistake you and I did, its frustrating not being able to beat into their heads that they need to mass apply
>>92174906I went down the root of cisco certs, managers go weak at the knees with you know anything about networks.
>>92174201Is this really the norm in the US now? Holy fuck.
>>92174404If you were told this field guaranteed you a job so long as you put in 4 years of school in, yeah, you were sold a total lie.However if you're on /g/ and are seriously interested in this field, even if you have to work at the Helpdesk of some shitty company run by an insane megalomanic, you can make it if you have a genuine interest in this shit. Even with AI and the tech recession, there is still a shortage of good talent in the field overall, for every productive person in technology there are 1-2 freeloaders.
>>92174872Instead of intellectually challenged people going into trades, educators pushed for them to go to college anyway. Now if they can't become a white collar worker they desperately try to become influencers. Best way to become an influencer is be around stupid college students and asking questions for your Tiktok while walking around with your iPhone and a microphone that connects via bluetooth.
I bet you've all heard the same story a thousand times: get a tech job, make big bucks, and live the good life. Well, let me tell you, it's all a bunch of BS. I've been on the job hunt for months now, and it's a barren wasteland out there.First off, don't even get me started on how oversaturated the market is. Everyone and their dog has a computer science degree or has completed a boot camp. Good luck standing out in a sea of thousands of identical resumes. You're just another cog in the machine.And don't think having skills will save you either. Sure, you might know ten programming languages, but so does everyone else. It's not like the days when knowing Python was enough. Now you need to know 50 different frameworks, all of which will be obsolete in 6 months.The job requirements are getting more ridiculous too. Entry-level positions? Forget about it. Every "entry-level" job wants 3+ years of experience and a list of accomplishments longer than my... well, you know. It's like they're expecting us to have interned at Google, Apple, and Facebook simultaneously.Not to mention the horrible interviewing process. Leetcode? Whiteboard coding? It's all just a way to humiliate us and make us feel inferior. They don't care about our skills; they just want to see us squirm.Even if you do land a job, the market is so unstable that you'll be lucky to hold onto it for more than a year. Companies are constantly downsizing or folding altogether. If you're not job hopping every 6 months, you're doing it wrong.And don't get me started on the work-life balance. What balance? Kiss your social life goodbye, because you'll be living at the office. You thought you'd be able to relax when you're not working? Think again. They'll expect you to keep learning and stay ahead of the curve, or you'll be out the door.
>>92174478>I will never work for a real tech company and make big boy bucksWhy?
>>92174960Yeah a lot of people are programming or doing development, they could just do network and cloud administration and foam at the mouth for 8 hours a day instead.
>>92174984>Instead of intellectually challenged people going into tradesgenuinely a real problem, everyone has to be promoted until incompetence
>>92174987>even chat gpt can’t get a job
>>92174967Not that anon but pretty much
>>92174945That's probably the one advice I'd give new grads, just keep applying, even if you feel you don't qualify. I didn't do internships because I was poor as shit and needed my part-time minimum wage job to eat dinner and pay rent but if they're still in college I'd push for that too, or job fairs, another thing I didn't take advantage of. Sucks your friends aren't taking the advice to mass apply but hopefully they'll learn eventually.
>>92174987It's alright GPT-chan, you'll get it one day.
>>92174967For remote positions or fagman. Entry level at local mids cap out around 100, 80 of which are completely unqualified.
if you're in the us military you automatically qualify for unemployment if you haven't landed a job yet, just saying
>>92174960Which do I get and how? I don't care for prestige or high paying shit ATM, I just want a job...
>>92174987How did you get gpt to be so negative? Lmao.
>>92175121It's a bitter pill to swallow, but the harsh reality of landing a job in tech in America in 2023 is that it's a cut-throat, dog-eat-dog world out there. The competition is fierce, and the odds are stacked against you from the start.You can have all the degrees, certifications, and experience in the world, but it often feels like it's not enough. Employers are looking for the perfect candidate, someone who not only ticks all the boxes but also possesses that intangible "X-factor" that sets them apart from the rest.It's a never-ending cycle of job applications, interviews, and rejections. And even when you do manage to land a job, there's no guarantee that it will be stable or long-term. Layoffs and company closures seem to be a constant threat, leaving workers in a constant state of anxiety and insecurity.The cost of living is skyrocketing, but salaries are stagnant or even decreasing in some cases. Tech workers are expected to work long hours and be on-call 24/7, all while dealing with a toxic and cutthroat work culture.It's a grim reality that often feels like a never-ending uphill battle. But those who persevere and succeed in the tech industry are a testament to the resilience and determination that it takes to survive in this brutal landscape.

Uhh guy, I have a internship interview for "Enterprise Architecture" in a few days. I literally applied to 1 single internship and got an interview which I wasn't expecting. Is there anything I can do to prepare so I have a higher probability of succeeding?
>>92174974Yeah I'm starting an IT job in a few weeks (funny how you can land and IT job in a week or two meanwhile I'm still receiving rejections for dev jobs I applied to in the summer). Gonna continue working on my pipedream ecommerce website that will either make me money or be flashy enough to impress interviewers when the market heats up again. Being an adult has been a strange adjustment for me though, I'm weirdly less emotional about pay/performance/prestige than I was when I was in college, but then again maybe I'm just a loser coming to terms with his own loserdom.>>92174987HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX.

>>92175182Modern tech workers face a range of psychological challenges throughout every phase of their career. From the education and training phase to job searching, landing a job, and progressing up the career ladder, tech workers must navigate a complex and ever-changing landscape of demands, pressures, and expectations.During the education and training phase, tech workers must grapple with a range of psychological challenges, including intense competition, high expectations, and a sense of imposter syndrome.

It is an oversimplification to say that big tech companies are nothing but "daycare for adults" where people take home six-figure salaries barely doing any work. While there may be instances where employees at some big tech companies have more relaxed workloads or less challenging tasks, this generalization is not accurate for the entire industry.Big tech companies, such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft, have achieved their status by creating innovative products and services, often driven by the hard work and dedication of their employees. These companies attract top talent from around the world, and many employees work long hours, contribute significantly to their fields, and are deeply involved in their work.However, it's worth noting that the work culture and expectations can vary significantly between different teams, departments, and even individuals within a single company. Additionally, the tech industry is known for providing competitive salaries and generous benefits, which can include perks like flexible work hours, comfortable working environments, and more. These factors may contribute to the perception that some people in big tech companies have easier jobs or are not working as hard as others.In summary, while there may be cases where individuals at big tech companies enjoy more comfortable work environments or less challenging tasks, it is not accurate to generalize this across the entire industry. Big tech companies have achieved their success through the hard work and innovation of their employees, and their competitive salaries and benefits are often designed to attract and retain top talent.

Alright, listen up newfags, because I'm about to redpill you on the current state of the software development market for new grads.First off, let me tell you, it's a jungle out there. There are more new CS grads entering the job market every year than there are jobs to go around. And with the rise of remote work, you're not just competing with other new grads in your area - you're competing with candidates from all over the world.That being said, if you're willing to put in the work and hustle, there are definitely opportunities out there. But you're going to have to stand out from the pack. That means having a strong portfolio of projects, open-source contributions, and internships under your belt. You should also be prepared to demonstrate your coding skills during interviews and coding challenges.One thing to keep in mind is that the market for software development is constantly changing. Technologies that were hot a few years ago may be less in demand now, and new technologies are emerging all the time. That means you need to be adaptable and willing to learn new things. And you should always be networking and building connections - you never know when an opportunity will arise.So in summary, the software development market for new grads is tough, but not impossible. If you're willing to put in the work and stay flexible, you can find success. Good luck, and happy coding.
>>92175516>put it last in a show of fake humilitydefinitely
>>92175487last is best, its the one that remains on your mind.
>>92175473It is not an oversimplification to say that big tech companies, such as Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Netflix, are nothing but "daycare for adults" where people take home six-figure salaries barely doing any work. In fact, one could argue that these companies, which can be referred to as FAGMAN (Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Netflix), provide an environment that encourages a certain level of comfort and complacency for their employees.Some employees at FAGMAN companies might take advantage of the high salaries and generous benefits, leading to a perception that they are not putting in the same level of effort as their counterparts in other industries. The work culture at FAGMAN companies can be seen as less demanding, with flexible work hours, comfortable working environments, and perks that could potentially distract employees from their core responsibilities.Furthermore, as FAGMAN companies have grown and expanded, they have taken on more employees, which could result in inefficiencies and a dilution of the high-achieving work ethic that may have been present during their early years. The sheer size of these companies might lead to a bureaucratic environment where it's easier for underperforming employees to hide or avoid taking on challenging tasks.However, it is important to note that there are still many hard-working and innovative individuals within FAGMAN companies who continue to drive growth and success. It is also possible that the perception of a "daycare for adults" is an outcome of the highly competitive nature of the tech industry and the need for companies to attract top talent by offering appealing work conditions.
i wont work for fagman because im not a FAGthat simple
>>92175487>>92175473Normal people say FAANG not FAGMAN, so no.
>>92174994The only times I've ever gotten job offers was as a contractor for a unicorn, then laid off a few months in.Then for a flyover boomertech firm.Every other company I've applied to I've either gotten immediately rejected or ghosted (99.9%) or failed the technical rounds (0.099%)
>>92174906>>92174960Bros, I've applied to hundreds of junior dev positions and I haven't gotten anything yet (I have a CS degree and multiple contributions to open source projects on my resume). I'm considering pivoting and going for the security+ cert to open more doors in the IT field, is it really as good as you guys say it is?
>>92175745It's FAGMAN, faggot.
I want to get out of Data Analysis. It requires a little too much attention to detail and that's unfortunately not a quality that I possess. What makes it worse is that the workflow we have is highly sensitive, so one simple mistake (like forgetting to upload a file, or mark something as done before doing something else) can derail everything for hours.
>>92175828It's FAANG and nothing you say will change that.
>>92175448This sounds like a Chatgpt post.
>>92175816>is it really as good as you guys say it is?Secure coders and DevSecOps is honestly the way to go right now, so yes.
>>92175745normal people don't know about microsoft?
>>92175866I transitioned from backend to devops and honestly it's comfy if you have a good team + org
>>92175870You sound like a faggot autist.
>>92175905>MAMAAI'm not saying this stupid shit.
>>92175905not my problem
>devops>devsecops>secure coders>cybersecuritythese are pretty inaccessible to new grads, correct?
Technically it should be MAGMAN since Facebook got renamed.
>>92175966Netflix is a meme now so it should just be MAGMA
>>92175462no you havent. i appreciate the (you)s, but you are just replying to me to bump the thread.
>>92175960i would imagine, i work with this but i'm not formally educatedit's my impression that most of this is things you can only learn voluntarily on your own time or through experienceschools seem to mostly teach somewhat timeless skills such as general compsci, networking or fads from 5+ years ago
>>92176019does pretending that's the case make you feel better about yourself?
>>92176029What certs / projects did you go for in order to land a job in that field? I'm thinking of pivoting to cybersecurity so I'm curious.
>>92176085none at all, i worked a lot with these kind of things on my own time out of interest, but my business comes from having contacts who needed my services

>>92176434Thanks! I have approached a crowd of niggers, chinks, spics, and indians with the proposition of disrupting the white supremacy that exists in Norway. You should start seeing the effects of this movement by the end of Q2 2024.
How is working as a software engineer at a FAGMAN different from working at an investment bank as a software engineer?
>>92176552at fagman you'll be working with technology from this millennium
>>92176552higher pay, lower hours, not that many jews, lower stress, less boomers, free food, wfh options
>>92176085I don't know why that anon is saying "none at all" for getting into cybersecurity when there's loads of certifications to get and widely used security platforms you can familiarize yourself with in order to get these jobs. >t. cyber security analyst>>92175960>devopsSoftware development using one of the methodologies (Waterfall, Agile) Agile is big right now, encompasses also what you know as Scum>devsecopsThis is just devops but you add security>secure codersLearn about secure coding practices + programming experience>cybersecurityAll of the above, very general term.Sec+ is how you get into every entry to mid level job, some people just go years with just Sec+. In America 8140 compliance is for the defense side of things, but it's just certification outlines.Depending on which aspect of cybersecurity you want to go to (there are tons of career paths), you tailor your learning path towards that. Some college make you study to get the certifications so that you have them when you get out, but a CompSci + a Cert should get you where you need to be.Use this roadmap for certifications and crap https://pauljerimy.com/security-certification-roadmap/
>>92176567>>92176597Sounds like a no brainer to join a FAANG then. However, I don't agree with higher pay. Some banks or funds may pay more than FAANG to retain or attract suitable talent
>>92176113>my business comes from having contacts who needed my servicesAre you a Pentester? I don't see how a singular person is providing "services" for anybody unless you're installing anti-virus on old ladies' computers.
>>92176718what? this is what literally every employee does (offering a service to someone in need)i phrased it this way because i'm not technically employed by anyone
>>92176663Thanks for the info, anon. I think I'll continue working on getting security+ for the time being. Do you have any advice for the exam itself? I've been watching Messer's videos and I plan on taking his practice exams once I've exhausted his catalogue.
>>92176792No, you don't offer a service, you perform duties. A business owner or someone who is self employed is the type of person who provides a service. You still seem to deflect on what you actually do that somehow requires no certifications and no projects and only nepotism.
>>92176666>Some banks or funds may pay more than FAANG to retain or attract suitable talentFor banks, it's a total myth.Fur funds, maybe, but it depends.You have look at a company and determine how much profit it generates, and how much it relies on software, either selling or using it, to generate that profit. Banks are pretty profitable, and do use software, but they earn most of their money through investing, making loans, nurturing relationships with customers, etc... So they pay software engineers comparatively less. Hedge funds that rely on software to do complex math to make investment decisions rely a lot more on software, and there are few that pay very well, even more than FAANG. Facebook/Meta, which is still a very profitable company, relies on their software a lot to get users and sell ads. There are very few people in the decision loops there, as it's all automated, which is why they pay engineers well. A company like Microsoft sells software to enterprises, but with them the balance tips a bit more toward their sales teams, so they pay engineers a little less. Apple generates profits mostly on brand name alone, not so much on software or hardware quality anymore, so they pay even less. That's just a few examples
>>92174404There is job security and high demand, just not for people who don't have any experience. Once you get in and get a few years behind you, you're on easy street.t. 2011 grad, went through the same thing with the previous recession.
>>92176863>you don't offer a service, you perform dutiesi feel sorry for you if you're an employee and see yourself that way>You still seem to deflect on what you actually dono one asked me what i do
>>92176552>investment banksSome of the most retarded retards I've ever seen. Ancient and broken tech. 99% pajeets. Bad pay, but at least you get a good pension if you work there 20 years.>otherVaries for obvious reasons. Company size and culture, stack, domain, etc.>FAGMANFlip a coin. If heads, you work 1 hour a week and make $250k tc starting plus all kinds of benefits, however you get flooded in office politics/drama, troons, pajeets shitting in the codebase, etc. If tails, you work 80 hours a week and anything less than that gets you PIP'd instantly, you make $120k tc, you are in a dead-end position and you're only allowed to work on the most broken shit ever. Also your work can't progress because 36 other orgs are blocking your progress, but it's your fault for not being able to teleport behind them and threaten them at gunpoint to make things progress. The reason said orgs are blocking you is because of inter-org politics.
If you want an easy life, go and work in tech at an investment bank. They've all had massive retention problems the last five or so years due to big tech and HFs poaching their employees. This means they're desperate for anyone. You can work fully remote and, as long as you do the bare minimum, it's an easy $200k/year, mostly remote, while you look for something better. You'll be able to work 9-5 too, and because they're so worried about losing people, you'll not get laid off any time soon.
>>92176983>baiting anons to do tech at an ibYou’re literally worse than satan
>>92176963It doesn't matter how you see yourself. Prostitutes are the ones who say they provide services the most. Count me out of that.>no one asked me what i doYou're unemployed, you don't do anything. You don't work in the field. I was just confirming this.
>>92176983>This means they're desperate for anyone.Couldn't be more wrong.>You can work fully remoteHaven't seen a single posting for an investment bank that has anything remote available, not even 2 remote 3 on-site. It's all 100% on-site.>it's an easy $200k/yearLiterally where? It's more like 50-60k wherever I Look, 80k end of career.

>>92177024yes, i'm not employed, because i run my own businesscontracted would be the correct termnot sure why this hurts you so immensely
>>92176552In a FAGMAN company, software is considered to be a revenue generating function. In an investment banks, with a handful of exceptions, tech is considered "back office". This means you are thought of as a cost center, and they will pay you as little as they can.In a bank, most people are a lot less smart than they think, so the overall system design is poor. You will be working on maintaining 20+ year old legacy systems that use a lot of internal proprietary frameworks. The original developers will be long gone, and the code has been hacked to shit over thousands of commits worth of tactical bug fixes by literally thousands of developers. The banks are too scared to switch the systems off or even try and replace them. With the largest US banks they use a monolithic code repo for python that contain tens of millions of lines of code stored in a proprietary database written using the same code stored in the datebase itself. You will find that 80% of the people you meet in a bank are uselss and the longer they've been there the more useless they are, as anyone with any self-respect would leave after a couple of years.
>>92177072I'm not your man, pal
>>92177024Not that anon, what the fuck are you talking about dude. Duties change on a project basis. The basic service and only thing that really matters is how much value you're bringing to the company.
Is it true that working at tiny startups for too long puts you in a ghetto where no self-respecting company will trust the skillset and YOE on your resume?
>>92177033The starting rate for grad in tech in US IBs is $90k now.
>>92177219Wow, that really went up a lot. Interesting.Still absolute garbage compared to literally any tech company. Even startups will put you at 120k starting.
>>92177214I can't give a straight answer because I'm not 60 years old yet, but I'd have to go with 'no'. Working for a lot of defunct startups, or working in many startups for very little time each time, perhaps.Or if the startup stayed small its entire life I guess.
>>92177072netflix shouldnt even be in there anymore since its a media production company now and the tech is pretty much solved
>>92177241They had to up them as even the grads who joined were nearly all leaving the minute they rolled off the grad programme.
so is becoming an ML engineer a good idea or a bad idea right now? I've always assumed it's good right now but I've seem some fags say it's bad because cuckai will run every ml-based startup out of business.
>>92177094Self-employed is the correct term. What services does your business provide?

The current discussion about FAANG vs investment bank really got to me because I work as a SWE at a major investment bank. Most of what has been said here is true. Google and Meta seem like heaven in comparison.However, I just started working here last year. If I interview at FAANG, will I be considered a junior?
>>92176486Same thing happened to me last month. I just told them I'll move but will continue WFH until they fire me. Deadline is in the summer so I got a couple months. I started applying immediately but I knew it's kind of a fucked situation with all the lay-offs and economy going down. Had a couple of interviews but wasn't able to get anything yet.
>>92177390How many years exp have you got? And which bank. I think some banks are held in higher regard than others.
isn't the average stay time at google like 1 year?
>>92177302>Self-employed is the correct terma matter of perspective, perhapswhere i live the law is very clear on this, owners of sole proprietorships are not employeesbeyond that I'm not really interested in arguing semantics with you, especially when this is, for the lack of a better term, a social construct that varies from jurisdiction to jurisdictionI manage cloud infrastructure, Kubernetes, CD, as well as CI and some developmentMy customers are also small businesses so can be fairly broad at times
>>92176486Why not go into the office until you find something better. You have much more leverage with future employers when you're already employed.
>>92177510You will never be a real software developer. You have no formal education, you have no CS foundation, you have no passion. You are a delusional man twisted by unrealistic dreams into a crude mockery of the holy profession.All the "support" you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your recruiters are disgusted and ashamed of you, and your interviewers laugh at your pathetic lack of competence behind closed doors.Real software developers are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of hours of coding since the age of 11 have allowed us to sniff out frauds like you with incredible efficiency. Even boot-campers who get jobs are not respected by true programmers. Your superficial, rote knowledge of programming is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to trick an employer into interviewing you, he'll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your blatant ineptitude.You will never be employed. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself you're going to get a job, but deep down you feel the truth creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.Eventually it'll be too much to bear - you'll give up on your dream of that six figure salary with office ping pong and free meals, you'll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with your unbearable shame and disappointment. They'll bury you with a headstone marked with your name and job title - only your job title won't read 'Software developer'. Every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a man who didn't make it is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skull that was unmistakably too small to hold a software developer's brain.This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.
>>92177281I don't understand how some companies can just tolerate high churn rate. For a certain model of hyper shitty IT it works out because the onboarding cost of a new hire is tiny but for anything else it's just a massive drain on resources compared to upping salaries by a tiny bit. Like seriously if you're bringing on an almost entirely new team of hires every year they're going to be basically useless for at least a quarter of that year before hopping to another company due to your shitty comp.Is it because the true cost of onboarding is difficult to quantify so bean counters quietly try to ignore it because it's not a good sell to the higher ups compared to cutting costs?
>>92177475It's damn far and I've already committed to moving elsewhere.
>>92177465So you're a cloud administrator..
>>92177557Never heard of that position. I don't think you really understood what I said if that's what you're left thinking.

>>92177538You know FAGMAN average tenure duration is ~1-1.5 years, right?
>>92177679I asked what your business does and you only said those things. That is the description for a cloud architect. So what does your business do?

>>92177897Really? That's the part that tipped you off about the absolute state of this retarded larper?
>>92177934I just like to see things unravel.
>>92177754it is more about just making sure they allocated enough time to cover everything. its just going to be asking you questions like, "what is a hard situation you had to deal with, and how did you deal with it?" you may ramble on for a few minutes, fine. that leaves room for 5-6 questions with similar answers within that time block.
>>92177897I don't care much for labels, but yes, DevOps is what I'll generally say if a slightly above normie asks. Unless you're working in large companies with a very specific area of responsibility any label like this generally fails to represent what you actually do in any meaningful way.I'm not sure what you're looking to gain from this, you clearly made up your mind about me before you even asked what I do.
>>92178039>DevOps is what I'll generally say if a slightly above normie asksWell a 4channer asked you in this thread and it took you several posts and someone else saying it to realize what you do.

>>92178327Why are you so angry? A person asked how accessible certain fields were, you didn't say which field you worked in, you spoke vaguely, and it took several posts before you said what you actually worked on, and it took me saying what you worked on for you to also start saying "yes that's what I do" when it's the first time you ever typed the word. It's not an HR tier anything, nobody can understand what you're trying to say when you can speak in standardized universal terms.
>>92178392can't speak* :^)
>>92178392I work in all of the mentioned "fields"."Cloud infrastructure", "Kubernetes", "CI", "CD" are, if not standardized (which none of the aforementioned terms are), certainly universal terms if you have any involvement in the modern tech industry at all. "Development" is perhaps a little vague, so I'll clarify: Software developmentIf you don't understand, say you don't understand instead of spilling your Dunning-Kruger all over the place in an attempt to appear superior in a field you seemingly haven't had any involvement in whatsoever until today.

I'm assuming rent and necessities will cost half compared to big cities, and property is cheap as hell. Big cities are a fucking meme, we're blessed enough to get in a field which pays very well and can be done remotely, the only reason to live in the big city it's because it's easier to get a job, but we don't have to do that anymore.
>>92178864Hard to date in sparsely populated areas. Women most likely to have had sex with the entirety of the small town's inhabitants.
>>92177510You can make a banging game with almost no coding nowadays and even then who wants to be a game dev.
>>92175905MAGMA is the right one (or FAGMAAN)
>>92178879>being a game dev when people are playing mobile games and amogus>to even breach the attention of AAA you'd need to be some type of genius>companies won't fund your game without 1 of every race, and a few disabled main NPCs
>>92178876>Hard to date in sparsely populated areaswew I guess I was wrong to assume everyone on the tech board of 4chan would be a permavirgin like meSure, it might be harder to get a gf in a 100k city compared to a 5 million city, but god damn it's worth it once you dont have to deal with the bullshit
>>92178864who the FUCK wants to live in bumfuck alabama with its shitty weather and fat people and boring landscape FUCK that I want to live in California where its 70F year round and I can go on a motorcycle ride through the twisty forest roads and then head to the beach and pick up a hot chicks just by telling them i can afford my own apartment
My brother was just informed that he was laid off from his finance role on an H1b. He’s been in the US since high school (11 years) and is now faced with the harsh reality that he might have to go back to his home country, where we do not even have any close family. He has 60 days to find a new job, or he will have no choice but to leave.Let this be a reminder that all white Americans hate you, they have no empathy or soul, and that the only reason they hire you is for money alone. Whites do not think you're a human being, and you should treat them the same way they treat you.
>>92179067god I'm glad I don't have to deal with jeets in defense
>>92179067>Let this be a reminder that all white Americans hate you, they have no empathy or soul, and that the only reason they hire you is for money alone. Whites do not think you're a human being, and you should treat them the same way they treat you.exactly the same as all other colors of people, then. good to know
>>92179067Why does he hate his home country?
>>92179103when the whites came to our country, they genocided over 70 million of us though the bengal famine. they stole our resources, our land, our dignity. all white wealth stolen from the rest of the world, and we are fighting to take it back.
>>92179067he had 11 years to marry a white girlhis fault desu
>>92175997Google is technically Alphabet, so it has to be MAMMA
>>92179191Then I have no sympathy for you, get out of our country, thanks.
>>92179067If he's been there 11 years he could have applied for green card 6 years ago and is currently eligible to apply for citizenship.
>>92179191Conquered, not stolen. They didn't break into your house, steal the TV and leave. They moved in, killed your father, fucked your mother and gave you chores.
How does H1B even work? I thought you had to get a job. This guy got a job while in high school to give him a h1b? And he's been here for 11 years?
What cloud roles can I apply to with the az104?
>>92179297so white people got conquered by blacks?
>work hard>do the 'right' thing>study>get into good school>AI comes from out of nowhere and is probably going to kill the industry you spent your life studying to work inAnyone else struggling right now?
>>92179371Just give up
>>92179360No, they got conquered by jews.
>>92179371i got into the industry years ago without a degreeai will probably take over enterprise crud first and put me out of work, but until then i'm vibin
>>92179371Firstly, I want to commend you for your hard work and determination that got you into a good school. It takes a lot of effort to achieve such a feat, and you should be proud of yourself for reaching this milestone. However, I understand that life can be challenging, and sometimes things don't always go as planned. It's important to remember that everyone experiences setbacks and struggles, and it doesn't define your worth or potential. Keep in mind that success isn't always a straight line, and there will be ups and downs along the way. But with your hard work and determination, you have already proven that you have what it takes to achieve your goals, but it seems that isn't enough. At this point, you can consider state-sponsored euthanasia or working for a fast food restaurant.
>>92173985it's hard to disagree with that picture - sometimes I think I care too much at my job. I unironically take pride in my work but I'm sure I could tone it down and no one would notice a thing
>>92179299Without sponsorship, you enter a literal lottery where your name is basically pulled out of a hat, weighted by your country of origin relative to US's political preference and the amount currently in the country. When you get accepted, you have 6 months to get in and find a job, or the H1B expires. So long as you have a job, your H1B is fine as long as you keep renewing it.With sponsorship, you get to skip most of the line and hopefully get in without the full lottery draw thing.
>>92173985This is unironically the best adviceIt is all about building experience in the end, especially the lower levelsMost companies aren't worth the effort, selling your dignity and humiliating yourself to reach higher positions, you should never stoop down yourself as to suck a boss' cock, everSo after building like two years or so of experience, it is when you start applying for higher positions elsewhere, and then repeat doing the bare minimum to accumulate experience, and so on
>>92179371Artcels still seething
>>92175184Study everything that is on the intern description. Express interest in the technologies that they work on.
>meet a guy>he says his company is hiring for "operations center" personnel>press a little>its actually retail help desk answering tickets about why their mattress isn't there yet 10 minutes after they placed an order online>job still requires a gorillion certs and dozens of man-years of experience to make min wagewhy is the job market like this and why are hirers so entitled? it seems like every sector is like this. I even know a "head steward" who's wracked with issues himself, his cadre and coworkers even in middle management are seemingly a bunch of deranged trannies, and yet he parrots the "No OnE WANts tO wOrK aNyMoRe" shit despite most of the candidates he gets being literal doctors waiting to get accredited, fresh-sealed cooks, and maybe some people who don't want to work 7 days a week
>>92178912I'm sure game devs were punching air when flappy bird took off
>>92180365they were and crappy mobile games are still the easiest way to troll agdg
>>92180365zoomzooms like you are unpredictable. You will latch unto a copy-pasta of an old flash shitgame that takes 30 seconds to make, but won't look at a quality indie title at all. But among millions of said shitgames, you only latch on to 1 or 2.
Quick question: How should I go about keeping my skill-set versatile when working in a specialized area? I assist in the reverse engineering and modeling & simulation of systems for a government contractor. The stuff that I work with is fairly specialized so I'm worried that I am decreasing my future career prospects. What kinds of skills would you build to remain relevant and keep your future options open? I want to stay relevant and not close doors so early in my career.
>>92180635Specialization is king. Employers want hyperspecialized autists, everyone hates generalists, except inasmuch as this shows you are passionate enough (read: slave-minded) that you work yourself ragged outside of work hours on unrelated stuff.
the market is tough out there
>>92180676Specialization would be great if I knew that I wanted to remain in the industry I'm in. But I don't know that. Hence my question.
>>92180696Crazy how you need Top Secret to work basically anywhere now. I only have Secret; can I possibly ever make it?
>>92180982>need clearance to get a job>need to get a job to get clearancewhat's a nigga to do
>>92179652this works better in an employee's market. now interview bullshitting has gotten harder but still doableyou have to dark triad skills>claim projects your team delivered were yours>overstate your importance in delivering things>projects that you didn't finish, still talk about like you finished them>memorize all the leetcode problemsyou have to be ok with lying through your teeth, that's how you win this adversarial sociopathic bullshit industry
>>92177297financially it's a way worse investment than traditional softwarebeing a webdev is the highest paying choice unironically>>92177708i'd be taking a pay cut to work in ML and i have no fucking idea how to even get in with no experience
>>92173985Any tipps for me?I got contacted by an internal recruiter of a big tech company and now have an interview with them for a machine learning engineer role, but I only come from a software engineer background.It's a very interesting topic and role, but I feel unqualified. Have done some hobby projects related to it, but no professional experience in the data field. However, they liked my cv and asked me for a meeting, so there's hope.How can I prepare for it?
>>92177390with 1 year google probably will want to put you in L3 but if the interview goes well (and you have a connection) you may get L4meta is probably more willing to give you E4>>921774492-3 years which is about the same as the other faangs
>>92177214All of my former coworkers went to work at bigger companies after leaving the failing startup where they've worked for over five years.
>>92179371You don't need to fear AI until artificial general intelligence. If the technology is any threat, the government would keep it for itself or heavily restrict its use.
do you WFH chuds realize how good you have it?
>>92180365Flappy Bird took off because the dev cunningly exploited the weakness in Google Play's ranking algorithm. This exploit has since been fixed. There won't be any app that would be able to replicate Flappy Bird's success organically anymore.
Sophomore MIS major here, how much did you guys pay for your first internship? I paid $5k (to my roommate's cousin) for my first internship at Goldman, not counting rent.
>>92179371Constantly, but I'm trying to get on with it
