My first real job!

Hey,

After doing the normal high school/early college digs of PT joints, I finally racked up enough interviewing confidence and experience in programming and DB management/design to score my first "intro" job -- a gig at a school office developing JSP/ASP and some other stuff. As a sophomore with little money, even the modest salary is a life-changer to me. If you know anything about the programming jobsphere, it's rough to get into.

I'm pretty excited!

Nice, congrats.

A real job while in school will give you huge leg up over others when you graduate. As long as you keep up the GPA.

It'll look a lot better than my "ice truck driver" experience on my resume

Sounds good Peabody. Did your school help you get it. When I was in collage they helped with stuff like that.

Yeah, a lot of internships come through my college's listserv (although many are for private corps that want 4-5 years of exp in some technology from a sophomore or junior, ). I went in an initial interview round with about 15 others, then a second round of the top 3.
