BTW, the mean number I mentioned was only $2k more than the mean for 2003. Certainly there are less respondents and fewer graduates with jobs, but this is naturally a result of market conditions.
I think the reason the average is still high is that quality large companies are still paying well. The consulting companies and small companies don't offer much, but some of the perrenial UC Berkeley favorites (Amazon, IBM, Microsoft) still pay well.
I also don't think the starting salaries were a major contributing factor to the bubble; a lot of the jobs that disappeared were for people who developing the same thing in parallel at multiple places (e.g. 5 .coms creating groupware). Now that companies like Yahoo offer free hosted services, who needs eGroups?

This is a question I posted a while ago and thought I'd try again to see if some REALLY smart person could give me a good answer. : )
While reviewing the class diagram in Cade's SCEA Study Guide in the case study (pg. 169):
Regarding the association between the classes Customer and CreditCard - why is the navigation arrow pointing towards Customer? Shouldn't the arrow point the other way (i.e. Customer has a reference to CreditCard). Why would the CreditCard class need a reference to Customer?
And also the same question regarding why the Order class has a navigation arrow pointing to Customer.
I'm not able to find really clear definitions and examples of how to use the association�s navigation arrow so if you know of any that would clear this up for me I would be very greatful.

In these kinds of talks, I think it's really important to reserve the power of "yes" and "no" for special occasions. Since this is effectively a negotiation, you should negotiate: present what you feel you need to make this interview successful and mutually beneficial. This company can signal their preliminary intentions to you by offering to cover expenses.
It will be your travel time to and from their business, and your time spent to prepare yourself for questions they will ask. These are non-trivial costs, in my view: your time is important to you and that's all that needs to be said. It's not unreasonable to say that if this company is asking you to sacrifice your time and come their way, that they cover costs.
I was in your position at one time, Nathaniel, but it was far enough from where I am now that I can only advise what to me, today, is the 'right' thing to do. Demonstrate your character and principles to yourself as well as others. Bottom line, your time can't be replaced. Their money can.
You might not even get this interview if you stand your ground on this matter of protocol, but you'll win either way if you can be candid, honest, and unwavering on what you think is right.

"I am a tester. I am testing a software which needs to be released in 4 hours. I find
a severe bug during testing. I report the bug to the developer and give him the time
limit to solve it. The developer says, he needs 4 hours to fix the bug. Now you are
left with no time to test the software after the bug is fixed. What will you do in this

I am married and had experience traveling 100%, which I hated ...
But in today's job market, I found it is really hard to land an ideal job at an ideal city with an ideal company.
The recruiter said $86,000 to $100,000 is a big jump
Since the compensation is not finally decided yet, does anybody have any good advice negotiating with the employer?
Thanks in advance ...
