Programming Skill

It is amazing how many people apply for programming positions who simply can't do it. But it also sounds like people are getting hired. It begs the question, how soon are these people that are clearly out of their field given a programming task after they're hired?

This actually reminds me of school. Computer Programmer sounded like an attractive field to be in but once it came time to write something functional, many people just had blanks looks on their face. I don't think they were around the following semester.
