+ - Hunting for a Tech Job in 2015-> 1

Submitted by Nerval's Lobster
Nerval's Lobster (2598977) writes "It’s a brand new year, and by at least some indications the economy’s doing pretty well, which means that a lot of people will begin looking for a new, possibly better job. If you're looking to trade up, Dice has some tips, some of which are pretty standard-issue ("Update resume," etc.), and others that could actually stand you in good stead, including using the Bureau of Labor Statistics to judge the median salary for a position before negotiating with HR. According to Glassdoor, Dice, and other sources, the average salary for many kinds of tech workers will only rise over the next year, so it really could be a good time to see what's out there. Good luck."

> Students can write their reports and essays using LaTex

Good luck getting anyone outside CS to do that. Even if the student learns LaTeX, he/she won't likely be able to collaborate with other students/advisers easily.

Even for my CS thesis, the professor wanted word files (annotate feature).
But I used lyx/klyx to write it and so he got PDFs, which he printed.

Lyx was wonderful, allowing me to concentrate almost exclusively on the text itself and not worrying about formatting. p I wish they would teach actual typesetting skills in school (because producing a document is a bit more than just filling a page with letters and spaces and a few pictures)!
