huqdcn I remember when I wanted to be a programmer as well but my fate thrown me on the other side of my plans so now I have another job. My friends told me about onlytradeschools.com and I decided to try and to see what happens. I tried to learn more about it and to start to make at least a little amount. Then I started to feel the taste of money and I was very surprised about this. Then I decided to leave university because I started to make enough money for my life and now i am planning to build a house.

Unregistered A lot of interesting offers there.

JoanneCameron I think that now the most popular job is a job in IT or any other job that can be done with a laptop and good Wi-Fi. Especially because of the situation in the world, when many people lost the right to leave their homes and lost their jobs. And if you are a computer science student, then you have a lot of interesting opportunities to make a good career. I'm not so lucky because I don't yet have the knowledge and skills to get a good remote job. But recent events made me come up with something to make my career. Thus, I found IT courses and when I prepare for the Cisco exams, I will use the services of spoto club (https://cciedump.spoto.net/) to get a certification. Please, wish me luck!

IanPayne Coding on a pc is really awesome. I love to code as well. One time I coded for 10 hours in a day. I was really focused on what I was doing. But sadly, I lost a part of it because of a blue screen. The blue screen happened because of a bad driver. The graphics card didn’t liked that driver so it gave me a big error and then a big blue screen that. Because of that I lost code worth about 3 hours of work.... I learned my lesson so I managed to install a driver updater for my pc. It worked really well. I am very happy, this software installed automatically all drivers that I need. If you want one for yourself, I recommend you check this good article about drivers :https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-driver-updater/ .

Wait, unless I'm misunderstanding you, how does one deem himself to be good at problem solving when the solutions are admittedly derived via brute forcing? Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Are you trying to say you would like to land a SWE job for the high starting salary and eventually transition to a non-techical role, despite knowing that you probably won't be good at your current job as a swe, your lack of ability to adapt and your lack of willingness to address your current issues in terms of keeping up with the current technologies / nurture critical problem solving skills?

... Please try to identify the skills required for business analysts or technical consultants and work towards achieving those skills instead.

Jack crush Physics is an important for A level or O level class student. Students always need help in the Physics subject as it is complicated subject and it is not easy to solve its problems. For your physics tuition Singapore the best tuition is Physics Tuition Singapore, I have enrolled my elder boy at Physics cafe and now he is taking good markes and his grades ar e improved. I will recommend all parents to enroll their children in the Physics Cafe as it si the best tuition center in Singapore.

Unregistered Iím the same profile as you. CS grad whoís not very good after coming out of school, doesnít feel confident enough for technical roles so prefer non technical.

Went to one of the Tech MA programmes.

So think about it this way:
1) Spend two years getting paid decent money while TRAINING to be a good software engineer. Doesnít mean you have to be the best , but understand what business wants and how does good code look like.

2) After this x number of years youíve been learning , you can go out and apply to be non-technical roles. No one wants project managers who donít have hands on technical experience or havenít interacted daily with Engineers. Why would they take you over any other non-CS grad?

3) Get Your base salary as high as possible at the start. All future increases will be based on your current drawn. 3K and 4K starting are worlds apart.

You have to ask yourself, what do you truly want?
I think it is still relatively easy to get >= 4k offer as a fresh graduate nowadays even if you aren't a top tier software engineer candidate.
