Few weeks ago ; i asked my C++ teacher about programming (or any computer related) summer jobs. He said that he had no idea , but he could ask some knowledgeable people about it.
Yesterday he came to me saying that he almost found a programming job for me. I told him that i'm only capable of making C\C++ console programs , but then he asked "don't you know how to make VB.NET programs associated with databases? thats good enough to get the job".
I don't know what was he thinking. I'm not into VB.NET that much. I had to learn it just to pass the VB.NET beginner\advanced classes. I even still keep it's book next to me when making programs and i don't enjoy it that much. Not as much as i enjoy programming in C\C++ for sure.
Also , when i told him that i'm applying for a job in a local bookstore ; he sarcasticly said "you wanna work as a salesman in a bookstore? you should be looking for a job related to your proffesion" , and now i'm left confused.
Shall i take the job when it becomes possible? or shall i work as a salesman (in any decent store) and wait untill i learn Win32 API for C++ (or any other "real" language) and get a job that i enjoy?
