Word!! Like so many college grads I have all the academic junk done but no freakin' experience....does anyone have any hints on interview tactics so i don't boink!!! I need a job fast .... I have student loans to pay off...I'm proficient in C, C++ and Java...although I would have to reference the MSDN and the Sun site for help on a relatively consistent basis...but I believe that's pretty normal....except for the super smart...just anything would help. I'm applying for entry level developer for Java and C++, mostly OOP stuff with a little TCP/IP junk in there...(which is bad cause I have no clue on that stuff) for example...I'm applying at Intuit (ie: Quicken software).....thanks in advance.
