But he didn't get the tenure and he ended up going to a tech company in a high position getting like 120k, but then that only lasted about 8 months before there was a mass lay off so he's searching for a job. He said he was lucky getting into the job because the person who hired him wasn't bright, hiring him based on IQ test and the fact that he had a PhD. Anyways he doesn't have much programming experience besides C a long time ago when he worked at a company before he went to graduate school, so he doesn't have much hope being hired as a programmer any time soon, although he is learning.
I suggested getting a truck driver job while preparing himself, but he said if he had trucking on his resume work experience, he would never get hired to the computer jobs. Is this true?
Also do you have any tips on job search for my dad?
