Hi Guys / Gals,
First off, if I'm not in the right forum for this question, I apologize. For this question I figured I would ask some seasoned coding professionals :). I do realize that this type of question is not a simple yes / no, but i would just appreciate some sort of guidance or any recommendations.
I would like to know if I "may" qualify for an entry level developement position? And or what's expected in a vb.net entry level posistion.
Any and all feedback would be much appreciated.
I have completed 2 years of a Business Information Systems degree (Programming) but had to stop short due to the birth of a child. Now i am looking to get paid for what i am truly passionate about. Programming!
Currently I work full-time as a technical support analyst (I know, I know) and solve complex software / hardware issues. I write SQL queries to provide customers (SQL Server) and I write VB.NET custom apps that interact with JET/Access.
I have a consulting business (on the side) where i write .NET apps. One that i am working on now is a VB.NET front end and SQL Server 2005 backend. I designed / built the DB which consists of about 20 tables etc as well as writining the app code. It manages customers and accounting features for a fire alarm company. It also interacts with Accounting 2008 and Office 2003.
I have a solid understanding of programming(I think :p), classes, functions, VB syntax, etc.
I know this is not a yes / no, but should / could I be applying for entry level dev jobs?
Thank you very much,
