Hi !!

I am a B.Sc (Chem/Botany/Zoology) graduate. I had done a course in Linux,C,C++ and found it very interesting. What would be the job oppertunities for a Linux C C++ programmer who does not hail from a technical background possibly be ? Especially in fields like kernel programming, device driver programming or TCP/IP programming for a person with my kind of educational background ? Is being good in Maths a pre-requisite for any of these jobs ? Or would it be wiser for me to give up any hopes of getting a job in the above mentioned areas as they would be only available for engineering or Computer Science graduates ? I would be etxtremely thankful if anyone could answer my queries.

are you looking for a job in the US? i've heard linux is really taking off in asia, and in today's economic client in the US it might be easier to find work there. That way you would gain some work experience. Once you have that, it'll be easy for you to find work in the States. Also, you might want to search for a professional certification program that targets your interests. That would certainly help. I don't think you should give up, since you do have a degree in a "hard science", but you are correct in assuming that CS and Engineering degrees are probably going to be more desirable to employers. Oh yeah, math skills are always important...

certification would help get your foot in the door...
