comment Why are you choosing XYZ? - Is this valid question in interview?
@akp Because the world does not operate on black and white profiles. Passion and commitment are human values. I can think of at least 5 companies off the top of my head that I could give a killer answer to on that question.

comment How to get a job with no experience?
@SeanEdwards +1, I second this. I have not even attended college and I certainly never had to work for free.

comment Is it possible to get entry-level jobs and internships without devoting all your time to programming?
If you want to be a good programmer, then you have to program every day and enjoy it. Being a good programmer and getting hired for an entry level job are two different things. Which is it that you really want?

comment How does someone with a business degree become a software consultant?
How is it that you can assume these people have no software backgrounds just because they do not have a software related degree? Degree != background. I know a very successful consultant who has no degree at all.

comment Should I go to a job interview even though I know I won't get it?
Remember, this is day one. No one expects you to understand everything in one day. Do your best, ask intelligent questions, and don't have an ego, and you'll succeed.

comment Two HTML elements with same id attribute: How bad is it really?
So CSS allows us to define a selector like div#foo. Since there should only be one #foo in the document, what is the purpose of this? For re-using the same stylesheet across multiple documents?

comment What is the Best Style for Functions with Multiple Returns and If/Else Statements?
The question is of course subjective. The FAQ states that the guidelines allow for subjective questions when they are constructive and meet the six criteria. I believe my question qualifies.

Right, it was hypothetical. I would use the ternary operator if it was this simple.
