This might belong in the After Hours section but I'll post it here to start. I'm fresh out of school. Programming market isn't what it was a few years ago. Finally had my first interview. Company has their softare on several platforms. Window NT written in C++ using the Dexterity tool set. This I wouldn't hesitate about. But the other systems are System/34,36,38 and AS/400 coded in RPG. And they want someone for RPG programming (the add didn't make this clear). All my University training has been on the OOP model. I really don't want to step back to a procedural language. If I get offered the job would I be crazy accepting a programming job for systems introduced in the mid to late 80s. I know there won't be any OOP experience gained from it (which of course is what I need to get better jobs). Would there be anything valuable I'd gain from it besides working with an actual software development team?
