Hi Pandita! Thanks for replying. Yes, like my post says also, having a CS degree is very helful to land a job, and it is probably more certain for immigrats...

But I think it is a totally different concern there. It is more like the degree helps you to successfully get your permit; does not guarantee you become a successful developer.

oh yeah, having a degree doesn't mean you're going to be the best developer, I had a teacher who was magna cum laude but wasn't able to keep a job, at least that's what the rumors said. Some of the best professionals out there haven't stepped one foot in a university.

But I do like reminding that a degree helps when you're trying to get a job out of your country because you never know when your home country is going to auto explode one day XD

Oh, thanks for taking care of those who follow our steps. I am also an immigrant. I hear you. 💜
