Got an intern at work. Any advice from actual employed tech people here on how I should manage him? Or any interns with advice on what not to do?
What is an NSA hirevue like (asking for a friend)
good afternoon sirs!
>>93657312train them to do as much of your work as possible
>>93657308women in the workplace was a mistake
>>93657268Move to Japan.
>>93657412good afternoon sir!
I'm literally watching 3 IT people struggle to add a cert in AWS. I'm also literally looking at chatgpt with the correct answer on what to do on my monitor. They have to be just running down the clock and pretending to not know what to do, right?
>>93657268Is Cracking the Coding Interview really a good book? Worth my time over reading some pajeet 2022 redhat sysadmin study book?
Are people really so proud to work for a "Fortune 500" company? Why? 500 is a lot of companies, is it really even saying much?
Good day, sirs.Tomorrow is Friday and I have successfully survived yet another week of software development.And I even have one week off after the next week.I'm going nuts, I need to escape all of this.
>>93657741There are millions of companies in America. It’s the top 1% of the 1%.
>>93657741its 'jeets who are obsessed with "prestige">>93657787good morning sir
>>93657312Ideally have a single project for the summer that you can have them work on, preferably with you. It's good for them to get to see a whole development lifecycle (up to deployment, not long term obviously) and it lets them understand with confidence what they've accomplished over the summer. Worst case just have a list of tasks to throw at them. Just make sure you have something for them to do.
>>93657723Unironically yeah, the more you pretend to do shit the more people around you will consider you indispensable. My boss has been working for 40 years pulling this kind of shit, something as simple as putting in a new switch he'll drag out for weeks, or he'll intentionally create loops when things get too quiet and spend two hours pretending to fix it. It's kind of an art form after a while. Pulled me to the side after a week on the job and told me to take my time on tickets since we're hourly.
>>93657591soon(actually, still in 3 years)
>>93658109uhhhh isn't that salary worse than europe?
>>93658147No one in europe earns 10 million what the fuck. Europoors don't even earn 100k
>>93658147who cares? japan is cheap and you don't have to work with lazy meds or retarded germans
>>93658164>retarded germansYou take that back right now, CHUD!
>who cares about salary Sorry, but I'm not gonna slave away until 80
>>9365815910 million yen is 100k
>>93658164Really? I don’t want to be some weeb faggot but I really like the way Japanese keep things in line. Unironically my current plan is to stay with lazy meds in Greece and have fun in the beaches but considering the corruption and lack of stability I was thinking of Japan but didn’t want to be cringe also Japanese people are hard to talk to and not much friendly compared to Greeks
>>93658211No, fuck off Hans. Your retarded team keeps ruining things since it's filled with incompetent boomers with 8 years of experience that somehow don't know any modern coding standards.
>>93658242more like 70k, do not google yen/usd
>>93658265>>93658109>Really? I don’t want to be some weeb faggot but I really like the way Japanese keep things in line.Learn japanese and take look at Japanese society. You'll discover the insane amout of problems they have. God you westeners are so damn stupid. It's a good country but the paradise you believe it is.
>>93658329I’m not going to work there. I’m thinking of living but working remotely in a company that isn’t 80s tier backwards hierarchy. So ideally , Japan would be nice just a lot of paperwork afaik. In contrast to living in Greece where my funds can disappear or police arrest me and get free foreigner gibs. Tired of instability rn
>>93657787>There are millions of companies in America. It’s the top 1% of the 1%.This can't be right.I work for a "Fortune 500" company that is tiny and I guarantee you have never heard of it.
>>93658159literally first result
>>93658413> In contrast to living in Greece where my funds can disappear or police arrest me and get free foreigner gibs. Tired of instability rnIt's nice, but if you don't learn japanese don't expect much from japanese people outside of tokyo, don't expect having a long term relationship with a woman o friends. Anyways, if you learn japanese and interact with you'll discover the insane amount of problems they have as a country.
>>93658532>It's nice, but if you don't learn japanese don't expect much from japanese people outside of tokyo, don't expect having a long term relationship with a woman o friends.Don't expect that even if you do learn Japanese
Let's say I have a hypothetical carte blanche to live anywhere while collecting an american salary, roughly 180k burgerbux pre-tax. Where should I (hypothetically) live?Just as a short-term arrangement for a few years in all likelihood, not looking to buy property or start a family or anything
>>93658532Could you describe or list some? I just like how rule abiding and clean they are. In Athena there’s a lot of pickpockets and graffiti and some don’t bother to take out their trash. You get stressed living like that when you can’t trust people.
>>93658532filthy gaijin go home
>>93657741I think if you get hired at one of those places, you're likely to have qualifications that give you some kind of general mass appeal that makes it easier for HR simpletons to understand you have some kind of value.Personally, I'd be more interested in working with someone who has experience dealing with keeping small-scale organizations running. Someone succeeding in such a context can suggest that person could be more adaptable and require less oversight. Large organizations can afford to be run less efficiently and can end up with a lot of staff that are essentially just ballast. They might also have an understanding of practical value that goes beyond "big number = good".This job I got at a smaller company less than a year after getting my AA in cybersecurity technically fits the definition of a CISO, so I can have that on my resume if I like. Kinda feel that's a bit too pretentious to identify as until I have a few years more experience, though.
>>93658532every country has problems fuckwit, at least in japan the trains exist
I HATE JUNIOR DEVSI HATE JUNIOR DEVSI HATE JUNIOR DEVS
>>93658601Japan is literally the only good country in the world.

>>93658647>at least in japan the trains existyes I love being packed like a sardine in the people mover rather than having my own personal vehicle
West part of eastern Europe (Poland, Slovakia, Czechia) is pretty based, IMO, but please, don't come here.
>>93658642Can confirm. I have only worked at giant international corporations that look good on paper but I contributed literally zero value during any of my tenures there. It's easy to just hide in the bathroom and no one knows what you do or who you even are.
>>93657730I never really used it but it does have a bunch of data structures and what not that you should know.Honestly everything you need is on YouTube, if you just want to get good at interview questions, go through the blind 75 questions and look at YouTube for answers to questions you get stumped on.
>>93658735>t. time leeching dumb junior dev
>>93657741Everything is bullshit anon. We don't have real capitalism, we don't have a meritocracy, we don't have impressive elites. We have a bunch of welfare queen corporations suckling at the feds teets and half of them are zombies kept up by endless stock buybacks. There are a few people who would be "proud" to "work" at a "fortune 500" and that would be people who know this but are status oriented and want to be elites, hyper-npcs who don't know this and like to do homework and get gbps, and people who know this and just want the stability and money from a company in bed with the government.
>>93658838>t. larping “senior” developer on his team that is actually a leech
>>93658879I am status oriented but unfortunately just don't have the height or jawline to go very far.
>>93657741Only americans and asians place extremely high value on the company. Mostly because they have no culture except consooming from the big companies. It's very different in western europe.
>>93658957In western europe you just ban companies and make everyone equally poor so nobody can ever own land or a car and has to ride a bus or a scooter.
>>93657787>Fortune 500>prestigious>not startupsJesus Christ what kind of shitheads does this thread attract?
I'm so fucking scared of my first job. I can't sleep anymore. They'll fire me in the first week for sure. Please tell me it's going to be okay.
>>93659043kek yeah my startup is a chromium app (please invest) we just got a $12m loan and only take 300k a year salaries with it thankfully our logo is cool and boomers are investing yay we got acquired time to do it again.... oh no no no not the fed fund rate?!? 2% interest???? but that will destroy the industry!!!
>>93659043startups arent prestigious lol unless you're the founder and it's successful

>>93659297are you a white or asian woman? if not you're not gonna get raped in chicago
>>93659335No no, he will.
I hate my team, org, and company, but there are so few jobs that can beat my compensation and the ones that do are ultra-competitive right now. It's either take a pay cut or kill myself and don't know what to do.
>>93659335IM NOT WHITE AND I'M A MAN BUT EVERYONE IS GAY UP THERE AND LOOKING FOR SEXY TIME I DON'T WANNA GO THERE PLEASE SOMEONE HELP. I'D TAKE AFRICA, ASIA OR EUROPE BUT NOT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA GOD IS PUNISHING ME WITH THIS DICK MOVE HELP. I KNEW I SHOULD'VE BOMBED THOSE 6 ROUNDS OF INTERVIEWS.
>>93659246Wear a bulletproof vest good luck
>boss is in UK>sometimes get called in the middle of the night to help him with stuff>write it on my timecard>get warned by HR that my overtime is not approved (they will pay me for the time i did, but going forward will not)>no longer accept my boss's calls at night and just keep my phone off>boss gets mad, but tell him through email that HR says no>few days passed and get email from HR saying that there was a "mixup" and all my overtime will be approved>now just write extra hours randomly and they accept it no questions
>>93657434>>93657828Thanks lads. I did already come up with a project for him. I could probably do it myself a lot faster, but that's kind of the point of interns.
>>93658603Here's a list of the one perceived and experienced:>Women are very likely to cheat more than western women ironically (specially in Tokyo). Some of them want to know what sex with a foreign guy is like and then they just forget about you.>If you get into a serious relationship, parents might in the way because you're gaijin and if you don't have their approval your relationship is doomed.>Not knowing how tatemae works will fuck up social life.>Some nips might pretend to be nice to you, but you can hear them talking shit about you because they assume you don't know japanese>Gaijin hunters.>Some places deny the right to rent to gaijin.>There's this mentality where there's problem, but no one points out, talks about it or address the issue because of "my social harmony">Get denied access to places for being gaijin.>pensions are shit. (Had to help my father-in-law)>Lots of homeless people living in cyber cafes.>Had to make my first CV by hand because they refused to accept it in pdf.>Peer pressure to not take vacations is a real thing.>Witnessed sexual abuse on Shibuya and people did nothing about it.>Lots of poverty outside of Tokyo>Cops might stop you every now and then to check your papersNo, I'm not telling that you should forget about it. It's a great country and you can make friends and have and actual relationship like I do (if you learn japanese that is). But pisses me off those foreigners (particularly americans and british) that spend like 2-4 years in japan without learning japanese or leaving Tokyo and claim that is a paradise. >>93658641I already did it.
>>93659508unbelievably based. more of a chad move than literally cumming on the face of your hr sluts.
I think my company is going under soon. They've cut most perks this year like conference sponsorships, free lunch, beer fridge in the office and monthly pub gatherings with open bar
>>93659524why did you go back?
>>93659524Indeed, everyone who moves longterm to a foreign country needs to learn the language. 4chan rants about brown people never integrating but there are just as many westerners guilty of it.
>>93659524white pig go home
>>93659524>Women are very likely to cheat more than western womenthis is a huge thing in asia. so funny when westoids think asian women are super loyal. the opposite is true. cheating is completely normalized. people will talk about cheating on their husband or wife at the office with literally zero shame. your wife will cheat on you and get angry if you make a big deal out of it. fucking crazy place. I don't see many people who understand how big of a deal this is so mentioning it as your first point makes me know you actually know whats up lol.
>>93659564I'm visiting my parents and I want to them to meet my current girlfriend. I'll go back in 2 months. Protips:>Go to a gym and interact with people in there.>Get a good grasp of tatemae>Avoid picking up girls in ikebukuro or roppongi (the ones I met were gaijin hunters ) >>93659613Hispanic pig, mister.>>93659719Almost dudes I know have cheated in their current girlfriends with prostitutes / "health delivery"
>>93659790>Almost dudes I know have cheated in their current girlfriends with prostitutes / "health delivery"lol. so relatable. I remember my group of friends at work got so fucking angry with me when I wouldn't cheat on my wife, like I was the bad person being judgemental of them. wasn't even the first, second, or third time I had experienced similar situations. I couldn't even tell you how many times people at the office talked about their cheating love affairs. maybe asian women living in the west are loyal, I couldn't tell you. but asian women in asia are not. at least the ones who go to offices.
>>93659719I thought asian women don't like sex
>>93659790Thanks for the tips friend.t. spic
>>93659790how wet is your girls pussy? how long are you spending on foreplay before you fuck her?
>>93659841>I remember my group of friends at work got so fucking angry with me when I wouldn't cheat on my wife, like I was the bad person being judgemental of them.I got a free pass on this one because I pulled the gaijin card, and they were like: "It can't be helped, you gaijins don't do that". Sadly it didn't work when they invited me to get drunk after work. Quitting and finding a remote job was the best decision.
damn now I'm questioning whether it's worth to keep doing my nihongo repsmaybe I should start learning something like flutter instead
>>93660120it's worth it just to fuck a bunch of easy girls for a few years, asian sexpat is a meme for a reason
How do I get a ML engineer or a data science job?I already work for a company developing and deploying AI apps but never the "dirty" work of actually doing research or working on something really groundbreaking. Also, my job pays like shit.I am a Computer Science Bachelor who graduated 4 years ago.What would be the step by step process of trying to get on the radar of HR people on Linkedin, or for the ML and data science jobs I apply for? Is certification mandatory?I cannot get into detail on what I currently do in my company (adding to my Linkedin profile) because I am on NDA and I might get fired for that (the client is an S&P500 company)
>>93659719So... how do I get a qt loyal white gf then?
>>93660165>What would be the step by step process of trying to get on the radar of HR people on Linkedin, or for the ML and data science jobs I apply for? Is certification mandatory?I'm no expert but I learned that HR people really like seeing certs and degrees combined.
>>93659133i thought i was going to get fired every day for 2 years. just use the paranoia to work hard
>>93660214idk bro I'm asian I don't know how to date westoid white girls. maybe try letting her know you're a lgbt ally?
>two week vacation>not a drop of alcohol>back to work this week>one bottle of vodka down already
>>93659133> I'm so fucking scared of my first job. I can't sleep anymore. They'll fire me in the first week for sure. Please tell me it's going to be okay.Did you screw up or something? If not, relax.
I am an oldfag. ▲▲ ▲
>>93660261I didn't even start yet, but I don't have any skills. I don't know why they hired me in the first place. They said I can learn everything on the job, but I feel like they still expect me to be more competent than I am.If they fire me, I'm fucked. I'll never get another job.
>be me>self-taught>had multiple interviews now, passed a couple of technical interviews too so I think I'm good enough>keep getting rejected eventually because some other applicant has better experienceHow do I address this? Should I somehow try to reassure the interviewer that I'm good to work with or is there some pro-bono stuff I can do like contributing to open source?I'm getting real sick of this and I have another interview coming up so I really want to get over this one thing that's holding me back
>>93660400>be me>degree haver>cant get an interviewcount your blessings faggot
I keep getting unsolicited emails for jobs that I'm not at all qualified for. Anybody ever go for it? How did it turn out.
>>93660481maybe build a portfolio, faggit
>>93660400apply to more startups or places willing to take a chance on a self taught dev, and work on soft skills, if you're landing interviews and doing well on technical portions and still not getting offers it's likely a behavioral/soft skills issue>>93660481there is either something seriously wrong with the formatting of your resume or you have absolutely 0 projects/internships or you're simply not applying to enough jobs
Math > CS
>>93659524>Some places deny the right to rent to gaijin.This is based, why don't we have this right in the supposed land of freedom?
>>93660147I lived in Taiwan for 6 months and had zero sex. I didn't even leave my apartment, I just stayed inside playing Stardew Valley all night.
>>93660820>if you're landing interviews and doing well on technical portions and still not getting offers it's likely a behavioral/soft skills issueso I'm too much of a sperg, basically
>Checking out tickets>Some dev is crying about his plugin not working>"Hurr it works on my personal computer there must be some corporate thing making it not work!">Head of department leaves comment on ticket>"Checked out the software, looks like open source freeware...you get what you pay for.">Closes ticketHoly fucking based.
>>93661107Not necessarily, a lot of HR roasties want you to answer questions in a specific way. Look up STAR interview method and common behavioral interview questions, come up with answers for behavioral questions and rehearse them to the point you can recite them confidently when asked during an interview. Some of those "describe a time you had a conflict with a coworker" type questions are literally impossible for juniors to answer so just fabricate a story about how your coworker at your IT job was doing blah blah blah and you explained to them blah blah blah and you came to an agreement to do blah blah blah moving forward.
>>93660120I'm learning both just in case
>>93660274I'm sorry to hear that.
Anyone have experience with outsorcing?
>>93657268How do I know if I'm ready to go from mid to senior? Feel free to send blogs or otherwise but don't see anything online and cgpt was garbo
>>93660635just world fallacyI have a portfolio>>93660820I have applied to 600 jobs. I have had a few interviews. I was ghosted by two, rejected after the first interview in one, rejected in another after 5 rounds. I am applying to anywhere. I am not being picky at all. Even companies with broken websites that look like they were designed by a retarded 12 year old never get back to me. I am willing to relocate to CA, AZ, TX, or CO. I have an internship and 4 major projects. I graduated from a state school with a mid 3 gpa. I am no more autistic than the average CS dork. I am not fat and I am well kempt.

Intrusive mental images aren't mentioned before the 1970s in psychiatry despite being one of the most common symptoms in multiple mental illnesses. What is the reason for this? I even read my father's old psychiatry study book from the 70s for doctor's education so a crucial book that covers most mental issues yet it doesn't mention intrusive images anywhere in it.
>>936631591960s and on psychology is all fake if you want descriptions of reality you need to look to victorian era medicine

>>93659790>imagine dating a Japanese instead of Viet, Pinoy, or Hmong as a beaneryou fucked up anon, idk what anyone says SEAMonkeys are the most likely to be actually enjoyable to be around because they have similar values to whites and Hispanics. They BBQ, hunt/fish, and value food/family over all. I know I'll get memed for supporting Hmong people, but your Hmong brother in law will accept you after 5 shots and a decent sized fish.

Got laid off, people keep telling me to look for high paying senior roles with my experience but for the time being I want one of those jobs where I work 10 hours a week fixing bugs. What should I look for for this, and what's the salary range?
>>93663702If you don't work, you don't eat.
>>93663720A friend of mine works for the government (state of california) and he says it's super chill, you could try that
>>93663720Just target a senior eng role and control the amount of work you do. Tell a recruiter you want a legacy system.
>>93662368you have a degree and no experience?
get a security clearance they saidfind a job will be easy they said
>>93663702hmm based on current trends you will probably need to work 45-50 years not 30 unless you plan on killing yourself in 30 years I mean then it's fine
>>93663893no one said that
>>93663893security clearance shit is east coast bro. look in the states around dc.

>>93664056>guy discovering where the goalposts have always been
>>93664056>did no research>is retardedgood luck out there anon. it will be a hard life, yours.
>>93664056If you're getting a security clearance you're most likely looking for a job with the government.There are more national government jobs than any individual state government jobsMost main offices for government(national) jobs are going to be near or at the government capital.If you needed a security clearance to get the job, they're unlikely to allow an insecure method of access like remote workingTherefore if you want a larger selection of government jobs that your security clearance is required for, you need to go to the place where the jobs are.
>>93660290dev? cybersecurity? swe? if swe, trust me, many first timers have been there, it'll probably take years for the imposter syndrome to go away but you'll be fine.
>>93662368ohhh you're not white. that's rough
Can C# experience double as Java experience when I'm applying to shit?
>>93664256Yeah, any interviewer with actual experience will realize that both languages are fairly similarThat said, you'll want to kill yourself going from C# to Java though. The most modern versions of Java are apparently not bad, from what I hear... but very few companies are using recent versions.
>>93664297>Yeah, any interviewer with actual experience will realize that both languages are fairly similarOh sick, because I've just been putting down my C# yoe as Java yoe even though I've never technically used the language at my job.

Master Foo met the recruiter in the HR offices of a large firm.> The recruiter said, “I have observed that Unix hackers scowl or become annoyed when I ask them how many years of experience they have in a new programming language. Why is this so?”> Master Foo stood, and began to pace across the office floor. The recruiter was puzzled, and asked “What are you doing?”> “I am learning to walk,” replied Master Foo.> “I saw you walk through that door” the recruiter exclaimed, “and you are not stumbling over your own feet. Obviously you already know how to walk.”> “Yes, but this floor is new to me.” replied Master Foo.> Upon hearing this, the recruiter was enlightened.

>>93665628I am about to start putting 30 languages on my resume because I guarantee retarded recruiters throw out qualified resumes that match 100% the job ad
Now instead of getting stock rejection emails I am getting "we are reevaluating our hiring needs" rejections. Even had an interview cancelled on me for the same reasons. Why is it taht much worse now compared to a month ago?
>>93665866Because there are like 200 thousand fagman engineers also looking for jobs

I clenched real hard when I had to rewrite 50TB of DoD data that was a few hours from being reaped off a server. I don't think I could handle code that could cause someone financial oblivion if I mess it up.

>>93665866If you read the news regularly, you would know what this is happening.
>>93666086>I don't think I could handle code that could cause someone financial oblivion if I mess it up.Why? It's literally not your problem, except maybe needing to find a new job.
>>93666114I don't read the newspapers because they all have ugly prints

Fellas I'm so demoralized. 200 applications this month and not a single response.
>>93666263Some companies take 3 months to respond.
>>93666263>4 months of experience>not even real experience since you probably barely finished training>already looking to jump
>>93666172I wish I had a desk
>>93666299The startup is going under, most of the lead devs have left, so looking for somewhere else.
>>93666313I don't care why you're looking to jump, you just have no experience and it looks bad.
>>93666263In a similar boat atm, company has turned around and threatened WFH taking the job from hybrid to in person, only have 1 ye of exp and no one responds to jobs unless I'm overly qualified and they can't meet my current salary expectations
>>93666333What am I supposed to do then?
>>93666313Shotgunning applications as a junior is playing on hard mode. Can you get a referral from one of the devs? Have you tried networking at hackathons, meetups, etc?
Are there any good certs to try and break into devops jobs? I have ~9 months of web dev experience but it was boring fullstack stuff and I didn't like it that much. Would getting certs in Docker/Kubernetes/Terraform/Cloud help to break in? I didn't get to use any of that at my job because it was a boomer company.
>>93666401>i dont like developing so i want to be a janny for devs
>>93666306Complain about back pain from sitting on the floor. HR will be forced to give you a desk and a chair.>>93666356>1 yr>Can't meet my current salary expectations What.
>>93666374Asked for referrals, I did get one but then was told they already found someone else for the position. I live in the middle of nowhere so I haven't done any meetups or hackathons. Have been trying to reach out directly to people on Linkedin the past few days though, hoping that leads somewhere but no bites yet.
>>93666440I already make 260k and I want at least 15% more every time I switch jobs
>>93666440I made 108k last year with my OTbase salary is 95k, get a 5k bonus at christmas and get paid my hrly rate for OT.So looking for something around 100-105k
>>93666533If you got 95k base you should be able to get 115k base.Don't undersell yourself.
>>936662631. Since you're graduating in May change your title to look like a co-op so like Software Engineering Intern and maybe even put part time there. 2. When you apply to a job see what language they prefer? Try to highlight languages that you my have used in each bullet point.3. You look like a full stack developer but have software engineer recruiters are retards so replace the headline with "Fullstack Software Engineer". 3. Too many bullet points should be 3-4 sentences max if it each point will fill more than one line!4. Projects should be just a short description and the languages/tools used. Most people won't read it but it will reinforce the rest of the resume.5.Just have a resume with your email and phone number AND NO FANCY LINKS (RECRUITERS/HR ARE RETARDS!!!). Have your fancy resume ready to send if you make it to the hiring manager. Just basing this on A/B testing my resume the past two weeks/some feedback from recruiters
>>93666660>Since you're graduating in May change your title to look like a co-op so like Software Engineering Intern and maybe even put part time there.Worst advice ever. Do NOT this.
>>93666660Thanks anon, appreciate the advice.So overall it's too wordy on the bullet points and I should cut back? What would I do with all the extra white space?
>>93666720Adjusting you title is fine it's his first job just send it to like one job and see if it passes the filter. I'm just saying see what bites and adjust as needed. You retard, again he's trying to figure out what is hurting him in the resume lol.
>>93666720This anon >>93666299 said it looked bad to be job hopping after a few months, so idk what to do lol. It's technically not an internship tho.
>>93666660Do you also have any advice on recruiters? I've never gotten a cold dm from one on linkedin and haven't talked to any since none of my applications have gotten a response.
>>93666172i feel bad for you normiesput me in a poorly lit windowless room and i'm in my zone
>>93666758Just manually space it out more, you're first couple jobs are going to be hard to get out of college anyway, I would just try and get past ATS or maybe find a career fair/conference where you can bypass the filter. I never did this but after months of applying and adjusting my resume I would get jobs with little work experience.
>>93666871Normies are so needy.
>>93666172i want a cube
>>93666423Mmmm yeah i love fucking with percentages and individual pixels because my boomer boss doesnt like how the columns are spaced too far apart but also too close together thanks id love some more please thanks :)
>>93666842You probably won't get recruiters until you have like at 2 years work experience and like C# or Java lol. I didn't get a lot until like this year when I had like 4. It all depends on what skills are being looked for in you geographic area too, I lucked out and had some .NET experience so I could leverage that even though for the past couple I had been doing NodeJS. I'm about to take a Frontend role where I have the option to do Full Stack every once and a while because I'm tired of Fullstack development for right now because companies that ask you to do that are usually have retarded lead devs/managment that overwork everyone and barely pay you when you're doing like 2 people's jobs' worth of work but again it depends on the company and there are a lot of shit companies.
>>93667044Yeah, I've heard that it takes a while to get recruiters to come to you. But I mean did you ever go looking for recruiters or send the first message yourself?
>>93657324It's easy. They asked me 14 questions, one or two asking me about programming design ("how would you create a phone app that does this?"). Just broad soft technical questions like that.
>>93663893There are no government jobs on the west coast. You'll have to relocate (they don't pay for relocation, btw).
>>93666234I wasn't even referring to newspapers. News can be read online. It's funny that even with so much info available on the internet, people still ask>Huh, why is this happening?

Dealing with big corporations can really be a kafkaesque experience. AI cant replace incompetent employees soon enough.
>>93668280if AI is realistically able to take low tier wage jobs in the next 15-20 years, literally billions of people around the world will have no work to do. There is 0 chance that the billionaires in charge will implement UBI, so I unironically think there will be another communist revolution.
>>93668412>take low tier wage jobs Right now it's looking like it's gonna replace high tier wage jobs
>>93668523highly doubt it replaces high tier wage jobs before it replaces customer service/dmv/manual data entry jobs
hels jeas some folk bringed up their chunky ass gamer pc because of memory error. started binary search to pinpoint which of the 8 sticks is the culprit. one at least, lets see if others are faulty too.memtest86 failure screen is brutalodd to think that I am only one from my geek circles to actually see it, since I am the only one who works with computers, not just hobbies with them
>>93668412>if AI is realistically able to take low tier wage jobs in the next 15-20 yearsExpert prediction for AGI is around 2031 and it continues to get lower. More and more are saying this decade. When that happens, AI will take all jobs and high tier ones will be replaced first because they have the biggest payoff.
>>93659048Wow I sure have lots in common with my country's region "Moldova".Why yes, as a western European I'm practically the same as an Albanian. Culturally, historically... It was a dictatorship 20 years ago and part of the Soviet Union before that but that doesn't matter.What's that? 90% of Europeans can't speak English and don't share a language? Nah senpai doesn't matter. Other big countries don't have a main language either.Go Europe!!
>>93668604AGI means its sapient and able to think for itself, so it could just replace all jobs immediately.
>>93666423at my place devops dictate what to do to devsthey basically create ridiculous amounts of bureaucracy and pain to do every little thing, they dont even talk to you directly.they have several pages of documentation to read just to file a ticket just to talk to one of them. worst fucking team procedures/policies ive ever come across in 10+ years. all that to say, it can be really nice to be devops depending on your company. in the best case (for a devops guy) you basically do very little but make up all the arcane rules. you also have no skin in the game because things are rarely your fault and all the rules you make up dont affect you (no dogfooding). you can just be a useless jenkins/github/lab/whatever monkey and tell principal engineers what color shirt underwear they need to be wearing before they can speak to you
>>93668616>it could just replace all jobs immediately.No. The infrastructure needs to be built first. If you suddenly got 10 times smarter you couldn't replace every job in an instant either. The transition will take a few years.
ok so I have risen from IT support staff to linux expert/developer in a university. what could be my career path? continue to high performance computing?on development side, I like to use Rust.I probably should finish my CS studies before continuing onward though.

Fellas I will probably start working as a PHP developer. I have small experience (4 months) as front-end dev, what am I in for? Will I want to kms after a week? Or will it be fine? It's quite a big company and I'm afraid I won't meet their expectations
>>93668654it has the power to build the infrastructure itself in a few weeks
>>93668784No it doesn't. AI is not magic, it obeys the laws of physics.
>>93668904Yes it can, as long as it has access to servers. AI can write code 1000x faster than a normal human with moderate computing power (one GPU). Therefore as soon as it finds a vulnerability that allows it to gain more computing power, it can use the computing power to write meaningful code with a business purpose. For example, let's take Amazon as an example. Amazon allows users to sell and buy items. AI could write an Amazon clone in hours, with better performance and better features. At this time, it has literally replaced all Amazon engineers in hours.Only jobs that won't be replaced are manual labor/doctors since AI will be limited by shitty physical robots. However, AI could also research better robot design and thus create physical avatars for itself.

Boss jacked up the in-office days from 2/week to 3/week a while back, and is now introducing additional "milestone celebration" office days when some feature ships where he pours us a glass of cheap cava at the end of the day but also we have to be at the office the entire day. He plans these days in on a whim, so far we've had about 2 per month, which makes for ~3.5 office days per week.I moved out to the absolute middle of nowhere during covid because I could afford a house there and I thought the shift to remote would be permanent. My commute consists of 30 minutes of being stuck in traffic followed by 40 minutes of public transport.I can't take this any more but I'm not that good of an engineer and all the fully remote roles are highly competitive.Do I really need to sell this fucking house and go paying more than its mortgage in rent again to live in half the amount of space but near to my job?
>>93669579>boohoo an hour commute to work le badweakass faggots like you don't deserve jobswhen will jews finally step up and cancel all wfh whatsoever
>>93669456So why would I avoid them?
>>93669641No. I have an in demand skillset so I demand my money's worth, including perks like WFH.
>>93669641why the fuck would you waste 2 hours a day going to a different place than your home just to use the same internet? what's the advantage?
>>93669641My work day is effectively 2 hours longer than pre-covid and yet my pay hasn't changed. Of course I'm not happy with that.I don't mind going through a morning routine to look presentable, I don't mind being in an office. I do mind all the extra time waste. I mind that all the tech jobs in this country are in 1 of 3 cities, for no apparent reason whatsoever.

10 days until start a new job. I'm extremely worried.I've worked 8 years as freelance/contractor in small startups with couple people max but the new job is a multi billion corporation and I have no experience in that.This is also very senior role and I feel like I don't know anything and will be fired very fast. Apparently I will be responsible for design and architectures of systems and how dev teams implement them and what tech is being used. I don't know how well I will do, since I'm not good with people, not to mention I don't feel like I have all the experience required. I guess if nothing else, it will be interesting experience.

I can either do nothing or twist the knife in this guy and possibly be 100% remote if I agree with my other coworker who's been complaining. I'm also newer so the lazy guy will be pissed if he's in and I'm remote. But fuck him, right? My boss also discussed firing him by the end of the year and hiring someone more junior for me to manage while remote more often.
>>93669771Do you HAVE to be there 8hrs? If these days your boss plans are random and don't really have any activity until the end, can you come in after work for a half day? Or leave early?
