Erm ... I do not remember any recruiter asking me how big was my salary in the previous jobs*. (Might be a weak memory, it's almost two years since I spoke with them last time.) And I don't think it's their bussiness. They need to know what were you doing there, what did you learn and what did you acomplish. Not what the salary was. And "worked for Xxxx as Yyyy" looks better on your CV than "Unemployed".

If the job looks interesting and at least a little bit challenging, go for it. If you prove yourself, your salary might rise even in this job. And with at least a little experience you are more likely to get a better job.

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.

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.
