Right, okay...there...

Firstly, relax: No one who in any way does not have their head up their backside will slag you off for taking a job, technical or otherwise. Coding for money is not a crime - even Richard Stallman has to make a living. Whilst the economic system we live under may not be ideal, it is a basic fact of life that you have to work for a living.

Secondly, this will not destroy your career: Everybody has to start somewhere and any experience is good. One of the things I hear most often from friends is that they can't get experience without a job and they can't get a job without any experience (I'm a recent graduate so I hear this a lot.)

Finally, I will say this: Take the job. Work hard. Show you can do what they need. This will pay for food, living and fun. It is nice to have a life and a job.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
