So, I'm going over resume's for interns, and I run across one from a masters student in CS.


He listed each SQL command he's ever used on his resume.


ie:

Quote:

* Supported SELECT, INSERT, CREATE TABLE, DROP TABLE, CREATE INDEX and DROP INDEX statements


...

wow.


I really give up.

Well, the first key should've been "masters' student". A lot of them are GPA-chasers who took easy courses their whole way through and kissed enough prof ass.

Those of us who are taking hard courses for fun have a crappier GPA, and I really disagree with GPA being the sole discerner of quality.

I agree 100%. As someone who challenges himself by taking courses that normal people would consider insane (like spending a week in the lab making a processor - literally a week), I think that the GPA system is crap as well.

At which point you can return the CV to the student, with the note "Sorry, we are only searching for UPDATE experts at this time".
