You're a computer programmer, down on luck and out of work, middle-aged with
responsibilities. Although you yearn to work for a game company, they'll never
hire you. All of them either require tons of experience, or expect you to work
for free for a couple of years. You briefly wonder if they'll ever accept your
application as a computer-savvy janitor, but you shake away the thought. You
do, after all, have responsibilities...
So here you are, living out of your suitcase, bouncing from one company to
another. All of them claim to be leading hi-tech developers because they work
their employees like bees. Each takes pride in paying the best, brightest, most
talented people in the industry sub-average salary. You wonder if being a local
chain fast-food restaurant manager pays better after all.
Finally, you arrive at this company. You apply for a computer programmer
position. All seems well. The people are reasonably polite and bright. The
smooth-talking interviewer even gives you all the necessary materials to study
for the interview. The following is the story of your life.
