Hi matt, i've been working as a general helper in my family's business. They have a cleaning company that works mostly for movietheaters in newengland and newyork. They do the general cleaning of the theathers.
Well I help my mom on the office doing whatever she needs me to do(not fun), and on the computer i don't do much just use word and sometimes quickbooks to make checks. Well when her computer crashes i am the one that try to solves all the problems. Sometimes i also have to go and do cleaning as well(really not fun).
Along with that title comes another one; webmaster :-) I built and manage a webpage for a rental house in florida here is the link www.amagicalvacation.net or www.amagicalvacation.co.uk well, that's more fun, but i don't really do much anymore on that. After i built it and set everything up, i ran out of things to do on that. If you can suggest me of a java program i could make in the future to enjance the page so i can put on my resume that i have some realworld experience it would be great.
I don't have taxes to prove that i've worked because i didnt' really get a pay check last year, i was just getting some money as grattitud for my servises, lol. Now i'm gettimg payed but i don't like doing this because most of the time i end up cleaning movie theathers. I will pay taxes next year. I hope I have to pay a lot, that would mean i got a good job and made a lot of money :-)
I want to mayor in computer science hardware, and learn the software part from classes or by myself because is easier to learn software for me. I love programing, and if i land a job in that area where i can get experience and climb to the top, i will be a happy person.

Hi matt, are you advising me to go now without experince? Or should i wait a little until i get some more java experience. I graduated last year, and i've been working with my familly in a family own business; but the time has come for me to get into the real job market and as i said i'm willing to work hard so i don't have to flip any burgers.
About the fake jobs
Wasnt' aware of that.

Hi Matt Cao,
This is not an Indian interview procedure, this is an AMERICAN interview procedure, I too don't understand why they have such interview procedure. Don't generalize things. I am being interviewed in USA, not India.

Had one ex-colleague who would have been hired except for one of those.
Technical interviews went perfect, IT department wanted him badly but HR insisted on running him through an assessment center. The outcome of that (that he was unsuited to work in IT, all they'd done was have him roleplay some scripted thingy that had nothing at all to do with the job he applied for) was more important than the excellent technical merits he'd shown to the IT bosses.
Forgot to mention, the man has 20 years of IT experience under his belt plus another 10 as an editor for a radio and TV station yet that "test" showed him a person who cannot relate to others and should not work in IT or any job requiring customer contact...
