    hello


    I have a family friend who is 18 years old and he wants to permanently move from another country to usa.
    here is his email to me:
    "right now I am working to become a programmer so that I can start making websites. I have completely mastered C#. The only problem is that I don't know what kind of jobs I can get there.
    I love programming. If I continue in this path, what kind of jobs do you think I could apply for?"


    I want to make sure he receives an accurate answer but I am not familiar with this field at all. Does anyone know the answer to his questions?

    the kind of jobs that you can get as a c# programmer are net applications that provide functionality between sites and services. Making websites mostly consist of HTML programming. He could apply to freelancer type sites, where he can trade his skills there.

    First nobody has completely mastered an programming language.
    Second he can get work as:

    Web develepor (asp.net,mvc), Desktop developer, Windows phone 7 and 8 developer and probably anything that is connected with windows can be developed with the usage of c#.

    That sounded "off" to me too. Maybe he should completely master McDonalds 1st.
