a thing i'm gonna be pissed off about all day: tech cos paying bootcamp grads (ESPECIALLY WOMEN OF COLOR) tens of thousands of dollars less than salary for new grads. i'm not quibbling over a few thousand. >$20k difference in base salary is absolutely despicable. don't @ me.
lmao at all the replies from people who assume that i'm complaining because i'm a bootcamp grad.
no, i went to the best university in the nation for computer science, i probably make more than you did at my age, and, here's the kicker: i care about other people.
"What about their four years of experience in college?"
Using Stanford as an example, an undergraduate degree is 180 units. At least 43 of those units must be in CS. So a BS spends about 25% of their 4 years actually doing CS classes. 🤔
here's a thread on how i deal with resentment and jealousy about opportunities given to marginalized groups i'm not a part of!
you should read this if you're in a majority group but have personally dealt with adversity, and are feeling unsupported.
for background: yes, all asian groups are marginalized (see bamboo ceiling, model minority myth, and do your own research).
southeast asians are especially likely to have lower socioeconomic status and lower education rates. that's me!
my parents didn't go to middle school/beyond, escaped vietnam on a boat, and don't speak much english. i went to a high school that almost lost accreditation (i would have lost my diploma) and the average SAT score was 1200/2400. so i get mad when people assume i had resources.
