Entry level is ideal for candidates who top-post and don't trim. Heh heh.
I think someone can get a couple years experience programming in "x
platform" while in school. Entry level, I've always thought, meant fresh
out of school, green behind the ears, virginal to the industry, etc.
But I agree, for the most part.
I just don't understand why companies (like this) offer so little
compensation for jobs which are clearly worth much more pay. It doesn't
help that the job is in Heber/Park City either. Who wants to spend 1/3
of their salary on gas?
