in reply to Do my homework for me!

Do you want a "do my homework for me" person as a teammate?

Irrelevant. If one somehow makes it through college with that attitude they're not going to be employable anyways. Answering homework questions just reduces the competition for my job and makes me look better. Keep up the good work ;)

    I say this with great sadness, but "wanna bet?"

    98% of the time, what you say is true. But sometimes someone has a relative who is highly placed, and can influence hiring decisions. That's less likely to happen if son/daughter/niece/nephew flunked or dropped out of their college programming classes.

      In my experience most colleges don't allow their students to post questions to during the final exam. If you pass a programming course at any moderately decent college, you'll know something about programming.
        Either you have lower standards than I do for "know something about programming" or else you have far higher standards than usual for "moderately decent college".
      I like to think that with competition for perl jobs so vicious and getting worse, even the family of the CEO won't be able to get the jobs because there won't be jobs-except for the very brilliant or the self-employed.

    You just keep telling yourself that. I'm extremely fortunate in that my workplace's hiring procedure includes a case study -- and it works, too -- but all but a handful of employers look at your credentials, and maybe your resumé and references, and don't do any practical check on whether you can actually do the job they're hiring you for. If you're lucky, and your employer isn't afraid of wrongful-dismissal suits, your less useful cow-orkers might get fired for their incompetence, if their supervisor notices that they're not pulling their weight. Welcome to the cube farm.

      I don't know. Case studies are easy for employers, but not for employees. If I want to interview with 10 employers, and each requires 4 hours of 'homework', it's.. impossible. And it is so easy for them to say 'well, send up a code sample doing X' even if you are number 599 in their priority applicant list....
