Oh I assure you Dear sir, that I have. quite a few, in fact. Just
for the record, I worked in Telco for a year, and they did not ask
for any experience in their campus interview.

Please note that companies coming for campus interviews /cannot and
do not/ expect students to have a lot of programming experience.
Their attitude usually is that they (I mean the companies) will give
them the required expertise. Nobody can have experience without
getting a job sometime as an unexperienced person.

The REC guys are just worried, and perhaps I should have tried to
tell them that nothing special is needed for gettin picked up, they
just need to perform about average, and that's what the companies

Probably you yourself did not give a campus interview, that's why
you think that the candidate should be well experienced, very
talented and all that. Nothing of the sort. The vast majority of the
people in this world are of average abilities, and most of them have
a job.

just my 2 cents.
