Wait, what goes here vs /r/csmajors?
Good question! It's like this: if the question is more about college/university, it goes in /r/csmajors; if it's more about a job, it goes here; if it's in between, it can go in either one.
Examples of questions that can go in either would be, "Are college career fairs worth it?" or "What do you actually use from CS classes in real jobs?" or "Someone gave me this advice about getting an internship, is this right?" For more details, check out the rules.

We could always do with more help and wisdom, friend! The better the FAQ, the harder we can come down on lazy posters with low-effort OPs, which means a higher quality subreddit experience for you.
