View Full Version : Contract

28th June 2008, 10:55
Just wanted some advice on contracting. I have been learning Java all the stuff like int and method signatures etc. I am quite good now and am able to write full programs that perform calculations like adding etc. I want to write games like Hitman as a contractor. I currently work in Tesco collecting trolleys, although its challenging (lining up the trolleys is very difficult, try it!) but want to break into contracting. I have 2 GCSEs in Science (General) and Media Studies. No expereince yet in computing. I heard I can get 1000 a day is that true??? I would be a millionare in a few months!

Thanks in advanced, better get ready for my shift, those trolleys wont return on there own!!

PS SOrry about the spelling although in computing its not that important to im not to worried.

Quite right!

You ahve all the required skills although I think your wage expectations are a bit silly, you shouldnt undersell yourself, you should aim a bit higher. It is basically monry for nothing in IT, so come get some!

Might be a good ide to lose all social skills with females and start preparing to be a old sad lonely grey haired git. For tips on this just ask Nickfitz, spend some time flrting with Cailin Maith in TPD, that is also required for newbies.

You've changed jobs?

What was the problem? Someone steal your road sweeper?

Don't give up the day job!
