    if you graduated from a top-tier uni (mit, cmu, stanford, berkeley), you'll still be fine , though I'd wonder how you managed to get no internships. If you didn't, you're pretty fricked

    Couple years ago you might have been fine.

    I can say I've referred 4 different new grads that HAD internships to my large company over the past few months and all didn't even get an interview. Pretty sure you're fricked in the short term unless you have an in at a startup.

    No time like the present. You better line up an internship ASAP and start working your ass off or you'll be lining up employment at Walmart to make your $1100 monthly payments on your student loan debt.

      If you line up an internship, you can defer interest and payments for up to two years after you graduate so it's a good idea to get on it.

    For me, I found a job two months after graduation after going to a single career fair. (My university extends all of its career aid to alumni indefinitely, so I could go to my college's student career fair even though I had graduated).

    I have internships, freelance work and FTE experience. Only one company has reached out for an interview - a startup looking offering an unpaid internship.

    I hate CS so god damn much. Do they also ask doctors to see the surgeries they do for fun while studying?

      No they just expect them to know things they couldn't possibly remember unless they spend 40 extra hours a week studying in their "free time"

      Doctors are expected to complete as much as 7 years of residency before they can receive a license to practice medicine unsupervised.
      All you have to do is prove you can use the modulus operator.

      Are any of you guys even passionate about CS? I mean, you DO have to put some effort in. You should display just how passionate you are with various projects. That's how it should be, in my view.

        First of all, you don't have to be a "passionate" nerd who lives and breathes CS just to get a codemonkey webshitter job which is what 99% of jobs that require a CS degree are. The stakes are too high for a job with such a low amount of actual intellectual stimulation.
        Secondly, the moment recruiter morons had the brilliant idea of pushing students to do projects, it was ruined for everyone. I've had so many project ideas I've wanted to pursue out of genuine curiosity and eagerness to learn ACTUAL computer science. But I didn't, because that's not what gets you callbacks. It has to be some shitty bloated web app using all the meme frameworks that everyone uses. Without doing this I never would've gotten an internship and then a job (which I had to leave for health reasons so I'm still fricked lol)
        this moronic industry wants a million things. Realistically, it only ends up favoring rich kids and Pajeets who game the system or have referrals.

        ask any senior dev what you need to stand out and they'll say this
        >have a good personality
        >build interesting projects - framework/language doesn't matter, just do something that shows you can code for real and can be trained
        >know a bit about SOLID principles, know DRY/KISS, basic data structures, some design patterns
        meanwhile HR wants
        >literally years of exprience in [MEME BUZZWORD] fresh out of college
        >projects in [MEME BUZZWORD] or they're worthless
        >knowledge of "C Sharp, Python, Java Scripts, C/++"
        and the hiring manager/interviewer wants
        >ability to answer any of the random million possible leetcode questions in 30 minutes or less, explaining your solution as you write it (you're not supposed to memorize btw, it's just a coincidence that everyone we hired had to memorize them)
        >a good, funny, approachable personality that you can only get by going outside and having friends

        it's literally impossible to do all that and still be passionate about this cesspit of an industry unless you're a rich neet.

            NOT pursuing those projects is what got me an internship and a full time job. But it sucked the passion out of me and now I'm basically burnt out before I even began, as are many others who didn't even get into this field for the money

            one option is to spit out ChatGPT nonsense and clean it up so it'll compile/run. I doubt most are going to actually read the code or use it

          Thanks for breaking it down. Admittedly, I'm not a programmer and I probably did come off as pretty boomer-ish in my initial message.
          >"Just have passion, bro!"
          But that was because I was slightly confused by the sheer amount of people I've witnessed complaining about expectations while seemingly displaying a lack of passion. I get it now, though. Seems like a shitty situation. Screw HR.

    The IT industry is a scam. Moore's Law will soon fail to hold up. There is no more innovation left in tech. I recommend going to careers.mcdonalds.com for more information.
