Since there are always questions on what you need to get into CS

I am in the market for a CS job. I have 8 years experience as Infrastructure. For those without experience this means Sys admin, Sys Engineer, Network admin, etc. A recruiter hit me up about a position, they wanted someone that was a recent but also wants someone with 4 years experience for an entry level CS job.

So when you ask if your degree is enough, or if a boot camp is good, the short answer is no. I’m not trying to be a dick when I tell you to get experience. Its what employers are looking for. They asked how much PowerShell do I know. Have I created, not just modified (they really want someone who has created) PowerShell scripts to query Active Directory. Every time I talk to a recruiter about CS jobs, they always ask, how much scripting do I know. How long have I been administrating AD, how long I have been administrating/engineering O365. There are some jobs you dont need to know this stuff, but once again, this is your competition.


Here is the job description:
