It seems to me that some are having a hard time getting a job as a coder, and are seriously thinking about making a career change. This applies to some who have and have not passed the CPC exam (after several attempts), and are still unemployed. It can be extremely frustrating. It can be quite scary during these tough economic times. Everyone is going through something. I'm willing to keep trying, and I encourage everyone to do something on the side to bring money in. After all, that's what it bottles down to. There's so much to coding; it can seem like a challenge. I didn't expect things to be this way.
