|We had a really good one a couple of years ago, but she wanted to move out of state and had no interest in working for us, what was the point of that?|
A resume booster as you said, but wasted time also I suppose. Every programming job I see wants someone with X+ years of experience and wants something specific and completely different than every other job. It makes it seem impossible to be qualified for most of them. I apply anyway, but usually never hear back.
My university had some pretty good job fairs that seemed very promising, but there hasn't been one since Covid.. When they use to have them, employers would basically ask me what year I was in then ended the conversation when I said freshman. Hopefully there'll be more this upcoming year.
|Heh. In cycling there's a saying: every day is leg day.|
Before I could drive I was a biking addict - grew my legs a ton!
|Honestly, I don't understand why people complain so much about leg training. The leg muscles are so much more powerful and have so much more endurance than the arms, and unless you're paraplegic you train them at least a little bit every day.|
Well, there's size and strength. If you train your upper body and not your legs, one day you'll find that you can probably bench more than you can squat! That very thing happened to my friend who I workout with sometimes, found that his benchpress numbers were starting to get really close to his squatting numbers.
Also, I remember sitting at a bench at the gym and this guy walks by me with this impressive upper body build - but his legs were skinny, he looked like a monster truck on tiny tires.
When I don't workout my muscles at least once a week, they start to get smaller and weaker. Legs are no exception and I find that when I skip leg days, I have to lower the weight and build back up to what I was doing before.
I can also feel it. When I work my legs out as I should, my thighs actually feel tight in my jeans, not uncomfortably so but noticeable. But when I stop, that goes away, and my legs just become a bit smaller.
|I can understand not doing in-person classes, but they can't expect to change the same amount for remote classes. That's ridiculous.|
I feel the same, but since I'm not paying for anything myself, I wasn't complaining too much. I pocket some extra money every semester that I never have to give back - just need to keep my GPA high which is a breeze. The Pass/Fail thing they've given us was a great opportunity for a lot of students to pass their most difficult classes that they might not have otherwise.
|Nothing surprising there, then. All too often it's not what you know, but who you know.|
I need to save the child of some important CEO so I can get a job! Not that I mind sitting in my room all day, but apparently society wishes I don't do that.
Here's my github repositories. I started putting projects there fairly recently so that employers can see some of my work. Let me know if you have thoughts:
