Computer Science Degree but no experience. What to do?
I haven't obtained my degree yet, but this is the situation im looking at and it's really bothering me. I would hate to have wasted 5 years of my life working so hard to obtain this comp sci degree and not be able to get a job :confused:. I've tried to get co-ops and internships but I haven't had any luck. I graduate may 07 and it is looking like I will graduate without any job experience. This is scaring me because my gpa is not that great. I have a 3.0 gpa for all my comp sci. courses and a 2.65 accumalative. What are my options? What is a way to go about getting unpaid internships to help gain some experience? Paid internships are easy to find (yet hard to obtain) but I have yet to have seen opportunities for unpaid. Anybody else been in this situation? This is kind of depressing me. Any help, suggestions, or encouragement will go a long way.
