Hey all! I am currently a student in my final year of complete a Computer Science undergrad degree and am currently looking applying to remote college graduate positions in software engineering/development. Does anyone have any advice for landing a position (or a position they could help me land <3)?

don’t worry so much about trying to get into the name brand companies. the best company i’ve worked for I’d never heard of before.

apply to everything you can and never decline an interview even if you’re not interested. it’s good practice

Definitely look to get an internship somewhere. The companies I have been a part of hire a lot of interns and then hire them on at the end if they are good. Even if the company doesn't hire you on, it's very good experience on your resume. And like another person commented, it doesn't have to be at a big name company, just keep applying and you'll eventually fine a place. Getting that first entry level job is difficult, but after that you can go anywhere.

Just fyi a lot of companies have internship programs only for current students and/or give more weight for candidates that are students. Once you graduate, it be brutal

Hello guys. I am a senior student studying software engineering and also taking some extra courses.

Presently I’m familiar with C++, HTML, CSS, JS, MongoDB.

And framework like nodeJs, express, npm, git, ejs. I’m also familiar with rest APIs. I have build fully functional websites with Back and Frontend using node, npm, express, body-parser, ejs, mongoose.

I’d really appreciate any inputs, suggestions or advice on how to go about internships?

try Boston Consulting Group, they do have internships
