According to the CSUS Career Website, Accenture is offering a fantastic opportunity to receive four weeks of Java and Oracle training, and then, upon successful completion, placement in a permanent position utilizing those skills.
This would be a great opportunity for many under-employed programmers in their 30's and 40's, whose primary skills are in obsolete technologies, like C, Paradox, Firefox, VB6, and so on. And if there were truly a shortage of candidates, Accenture would not place artificial bars to entry. But they do:
* You must have less than 6 months of professional programming experience
The Programmers Guild does not condone blatant age discrimination, and therefore encourages everyone with experience in VB6, C++, C, or Java that would be willing to be trained in San Francisco for four weeks and then accept full-time employment with Accenture to send their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
