Hi all!
I’m currently on my last year of university, pursing a computer science degree. I have yet to get an internship, or any experience in tech. Any advice on where to start? I would be attending part time in the spring semester and taking night classes so I would like to have something set up for January, let me know what you think. Thank you in advance.

I’d say start with something you can do on campus. A part time web developer job or something that’s contract work and even remote.

Once you get any kind of experience it’ll be much easier to get those interview calls. Leverage the career centres and take up every opportunity to meet recruiters at job events on campus. Good luck!

Without an internship, it’s gonna be an uphill battle to find employment after graduation. Ask your professors for volunteer opportunities. Explore teaching assistant jobs on campus. Go to the Career Development office in your school and get assistance.

Connecting with your alma mater’s alumni can be a good start. Working part time for a start up, local small business, or nonprofit can help you get experience too. Pursuing your own projects that you can showcase on GitHub or your portfolio is also an option.

Since you’re early in your career, any experience is good experience!

Can I also do the same?

Become a sales engineer!

I graduated with a CS degree and never had an internship.

I think you should just go ahead and apply to all the jobs you are interested in, and see what happens. You might have to take a job at a lower tier company than you otherwise would, but you can restart the job search after a couple of years and capture a significant raise.

If you have contributions on Github or similar, some companies might use that as a proxy for experience.
