Hi everyone, I recently taught myself Microsoft Excel, and I have no problem putting that on my cv because Excel is simple, and anyone can teach themselves Excel up to an intermediate level at least. But, I also want to learn some programming languages, like Java, C, etc. I suppose I can get basic, and maybe intermediate, skills in a language, or programming/computers in general. If I then put that on my cv will employers care about that? Or do they want you to have taken computer science courses at university (which I didn't)? So will it be worth my time trying to learn some languages on my own, or what should I do? For the moment I'm not really interested in programming/computers for its own sake, but merely to improve my cv. That said, I don't actually know anything about programming/computers, so once I start I may actually enjoy it, who knows. I suppose the question applies to any other thing you teach yourself, not just programming.
