New Grads Shun IT Jobs As "Boring"

swordfish666 Thank god for that (752 comments)

Now I won't have to teach them b!7ch3s how to be a slackers and still GTD. But I do agree with the thinking that IT jobs no longer hold the elite/cool factor they did in 1997. Now a days it's, "Oh you don't like the spec? What do you mean vacation! Do the f@ck!n9 work or I'll replace you with a contractor who doesn't think he's a f@ck!n9 Rock Star, mister ""let's take our time and do it right!!"" But I could not imagine doing any other kind of work. I love writing code and hacking business logic. This shit is fun. It's like a RTS where I need to defeat the bugs by using mad logic and clever skills. Someone in real-life told me that want to be a computer programmer because it pays well and seems like a lot of fun. :\ Fail.
