I am an experienced electronics technician in the USA and 6 months away from graduating with a B.S. in Computer Science.
I'm also not working now and need to find a job quickly. My problem is that if I list that I'm in school, the question of when I'm going to graduate always comes up. While the interviewer thinks my skills and experience are stellar, they also believe that I'm going to bail shortly after I graduate and they understandably don't want to take the time to train somebody who's going to bail.
Getting a software job now will either not pay enough to cover my bills(internships) or will take too long to find (given my lack of experience programming professionally). My family cannot front me any money and nobody wants to offer a reasonable loan to somebody who isn't working.
That leaves me with no choice but to omit my education from my resume and potentially lie if pressed about my educational goals. Given the constraints I just described, what strategy would you all recommend for seeking employment? I would rather not be misleading in interviews, but at the same time I have to pay rent and put food on the table -- fast.
