Posts I've Made
Posted 10 Jan 2012I have been using Elance and Freelancer.com, most of the listings on Freelancer.com are wanting data entry type stuff, and just fills the listings. All wanting something done in PHP or Drupal.
Elance on the other hand has a bit more refined listings, but both have low hourly rates and tends to be slow in getting back to you on your proposals or have long windows for proposals, before being closed.
Posted 10 Jan 2012I went to the university of US Army.
Best decision I've every made. Unlike most universities their goal is to make you a responsible, functioning adult - and not just a champion at beer pong. While at the same time making you part of a team.
Because they need you functional fast their aim is not to drag out your education for 4 years, and fill your day with meaningless courses. If you train to become a satellite communications specialist for example, you aren't forced to take courses in Italian art appreciation or 14th century French history.
And at the same time, they are paying you instead of you paying them.
They'll help you drop those 60 pounds of McDonald's weight.
And you'll get to see some of the world without buying a single airfare.
At DIC we get the question all the time:
What do employers think of recent graduates? Do they hire them?
Well you decide:
Candidate A: I went to the university of widget. It took me 4 years to get a BS in CIS101, but I haven't actually worked on any projects in the real world.
Candidate B: I was in the Army for 4 years. Trained in cyptography and computer science. Performed my duties with a government security clearance in 3 different countries.
Who would you hire?
And yet a lot of ex-military are not getting hired. Which is actually too bad, since they are more focused and will get the job done quicker, in my opinion.
Posted 10 Jan 2012I'm attending DeVry University, but learning faster on my own and through here! The internet is a powerful search tool if you let it!
