Hi all,\nI am a fresh computer engineering degree holder. Currently, I am looking for\na job in IT area, specifically software development.\n\nGoing through the job recuitment advertisements for a few weeks, most of the\nminimum requirements (for fresh graudate!) are profiency in skills like C++,\n..Net framework, J2EE, XML, HTML etc. etc.\n\nBy then, I realized that the programming tool/languages covered in\nuniversity are diverse, not so in depth and even outdated. Those in-depth\nstuffs are mostly conceptual and very abstract like Algorithms, Discrete\nMaths, Data Structures etc.\n\nAre MCAD or MCSD courses & certificates a necessity for ppl like me? Please\nadvice.\n\nThanks,\nLance.
