contacting companies would be a good start. make sure you get familiar with what the company you write to do, that it is in the line of what you study.

if what you say, your resume is not too bad, it shouldn't be a problem. you could also ask your school or former students about where they did their internship, or if the company they work at now offer any.

I've finally got 2 interviews, perhaps I have a chance!

even if you don't land a job, it's still useful. you can ask for feedback later on, checking for yourself where you might improve, and you already get a hint as to what recruiters will ask you, and what kind of skills they consider to be important for a similar job/project.

anyway, good luck with your interviews.

Yes, you're right stultuske. You gain more experience for every unsuccessful attempt, until having enough experience to have a successful one. Although I do hope I get it in my first try.

every one does, and I hope you get it, but don't get discouraged if you don't get the job on the first try. a better offer 'll come up :-)

I did one between my third and fourth year. Graduating this summer - im up in scotland but worked for one down in england doing programming. Much better working for a smaller company, you get to do more.

Yeah jbennet, that's exactly what I believe it will be like. Plus with a smaller (but fairly succesful) company there's quicker career progression due to the fact employees are seen as actual people whereas with bigger companies, your supervisors may never get to actually meet you and see your work - you'd just be a statistic on paper to them.

That's my belief anyway.

Yeah, but generally a lower starting salary in a smaller business. Ie 22-24 rather than 24-26.

Thats a bit generous ! i did 2 days a week in a company for a year while i was at uni and now working for them and am on less than 20G a year. it's a smaller company too.
