What really bothers me is all of the so called professionals commenting here who have absolutely no clue about the difference between Computer Science (CS) and programming. Sure, there is some overlap in the Venn diagram of the two, but Computer Science is primarily a research area in applied math. If you want to be a programmer, find a program in IT or programming or software engineering. To the interviewers, don't expect a CS graduate (especially a graduate from a good or top CS school) with a BS to be a proficient code monkey, as they learn the mathematical basis of two major subjects: algorithms and automata (mathematical computers). The common CS curriculum should not be changed to a vocationally geared one either, even though all the managers out there would like that! Vocational programming programs do exist.
