  • Exactly! My first employer hired me as a coop student and made me a Perl programmer. In fact, I became more of a Perl programmer than anyone who was there before me.

    Look for intelligence and aptitude, and then train people in the proper ways of the force.

    (My current employer made me a Java programmer. Incidentally, regardless of language, I recommend you look for someone who can learn a language from a book and who will Google and ask for the "right" way to do things.)
