We are expanding and we are looking for vb.net programmers. Our budget is limited, so we want to focus on college grads. Do you know a test, or whatever method, that will help qualify the applicant, so we make sure we are getting a REAL programmer?

    Hi. I can't really support this statement beyond my own contact with recent comp-sci grads, but I'm thinking you won't get many applicants with significant VB.Net experience, unless that experience was obtained through internships or other extracurricular projects. I'm under the impression that the average comp-sci curriculum centers around Java and C/C++, with little heed paid to working with an IDE, modeling, design patterns, and good software engineering practices (version control, code modularity, readable code, etc.). Perhaps you're willing to mentor on those points. My two pfennigs. -J
