I work as an operator 'cause I cant ge a job as an programmer:mad:
'cause I need working experience. But how will i get experience If no one gives me a chance? So I guess I'll start at the botton and try to work my way up till I'm a programmer

I'm about the similar situation. :( my dream is to be a programmer but I have no experience on it and my major in university wasnt relative on computer, so that is the excuse companies refused me. But I struggled and practised everyday, I believe I would have much ability of programming than those guys only have degree but have no talent for it. I would be, no, I say must be a programmer some day !!!

Yeah, tell me about it. I have a diploma with a distinction in computer science, but no!! Some places even told me that they prefer someone with a degree, but that i'm welcome to try anyway:mad:

Have you tried with other companies? I'd just send out my CV to everyone and anyone - sooner or later you'll hear a reply. You've really got to get proactive!
