Am I alone who sees this problem on the CP home page ?
- 2-columns layout for articles (this is great ..)
- but... author(s) line is overlapping a bit with the description under it, making the author name difficult to read ...
I use IE11 (sorry, I know, I know ... ) with zoom 125 %, and zoom 100 % doesn't solve it ...
Take a screenshot (WINKEY + SHIFT + S will select and copy a small screen area) and post it to Sugs'n'Bugs - tell Chris what browser and version, that may be relevant.
I'll email instructions on how to post a picture directly.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

As a developer i applied in 3 to 4 IT companies where i selected but i was not comfortable so i did not joined . Because the thing is they offer me Rs 8000/month .. The problem is not Rs 8000 the problem many of my friends who are not graduate even are earning 20k to 25k in call centers or technical support.
SO IF A CALL CENTER CAN OFFER A SALARY OF RS 20K TO 25K THEN WHY THESE IT COMPANIES ARE NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT SALARY.WHYYYYY??
Now situation is not that bad my first internship was 60$ per month back in 2012 and after 3 months I got hired permanent on 120$ per month and I worked for almost an year on that as I was beginner and was in learning phase.
But I have seen students too who get great as student too and can write code to the level of professionals they get chance to get hired on good packages like you mentioned of 250$ per month.
My advice is to get started with career as developer, polish your skills and when you are great on the skills you can demand as you want in future.
It's general economic theory; supply versus demand. Obviously, there is strong demand for English speaking call center support staff, so wages will be inflated until the demand is met. Plus call center support staff are supported by western companies. The supply of software developers outweighs the demand; so the wages are much smaller. My advice is that if you are a very good software developer, consider mastering your skills at home and then consider moving to the west. There is a small supply of developers in the west and high demand. A senior level developer would make at least 500,000 Rs per month in the west.
Obviously, there is strong demand for English speaking call center support staff, so wages will be inflated until the demand is met.
Oh yes... specially for the "supposed Microsoft" call centers that are nothing but scammers. And they do a damm $$$ fvcking up non-techies around the world.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Your level of experience is a big factor in what companies will offer you. Think about it. It takes little/no talent to answer a phone and try to convince someone their name is Larry and that they live in Wyoming, but not everyone can be a developer without experience.

You seem'd to ignore the fact that you may have not applied at the correct places or checked where they actually pay more for your so called skills or experience and may not have asked what
you were expected to do ? It is at ones discretion to join or not.

If programming is your passion and there is not any other option at the moment take any opportunity you like or take an opportunity you can suspect working on interesting projects.
You can still leave later but any experience working in a team and projects, a work culture, a work routine, discipline will count and give you an opportunity to learn & progress.
Your next move will be simply anything higher than Rs 8000.
The companies have got certain budget, as somebody mentioned here, certain Call Centers simply can have higher budget (from foreign companies) for you being just on the phone while other IT companies might not have such a budget for certain level of developers. If they see that you are good and they have got budget to increase your salary eventually to keep you, they will. If not you will find something better
As a developer you have got unlimited options to progress through years, even starting your business eventually. As a Call Center worker it is not that certain. And all of us started on certain low salaries!
You need to learn this magic formula about Frustration:
Frustration = (Expectations - Reality) * EGO
It simply implies that the bigger the difference you see in Reality vs. what you expect, the more Frustrated you will get, and your EGO only makes it worse.
It also shows: The fastest and easiest way to avoid frustration is to lower your expectations to what Reality is! Or simply become EGO-Less (EGO of 0). Because it is hard to be frustrated about something when you don't truly care, because you are centered. This is the hardest thing to truly change.
My first programming position was UNPAID. My Second one was just $5/hr (In America, and since that was more than Minimum wage. I was happy. My expectations were pretty low back then).
But you have to start somewhere. Make a plan, get the experience, and be the employee they want to keep... Or find another company after you have enough skills to move on for much better pay.
PS: A Corollary to is that Frustration means you are on the verge of learning something.
(Typically it is a Reality Adjustment!)
Such a great message. I think you are right because may be the problem is my ego get hurts just because i am an engineer and i am not getting salary as expected where as ungraduates are earning more. I like your formula
Frustration = (Expectation - Reality) * Ego
from now onwards i'll try y best to expect less and kill my ego.
Thank you so much sir.
