in thread Easiest city to find Perl work:

This is true, but unlike a lot of things, you can bootstrap perl experience. Write up some semi-useful program, put it on the web, and it's resume fodder. I'd certainly consider that a plus in a potential junior hire.

The degree thing helps to get you into interviews, but the amount it is valued varies greatly from company to company. Our lead architect doesn't have a college degree at all, and a fairly small percentage of our development team (less than a third) has a CS or similar degree. Some companies really are fond of them, though.

[robby_dobby]: This anonymonk's post reads weird to me
[robby_dobby]: Other than the content, that Chrome would not allow submitting code sounds like something funky going on there :P
[erix]: lazyness-driven inventio :)
[erix]: "the dog ate my homework"
[Eily]: looks more like "all my plates are broken and I don't understand why. Also I can't retrieve the broken parts because the elephant in the room is on the way"
[ambrus]: Eily: also webpages aren't displayed on my monitor no matter what I click with the mouse, and there's a blackout right now, could that be a problem?
[robby_dobby]: ambrus: Yes
