So it boils down to this: I have experience with C++. That is to say I've had a couple classes in C++ programming, currently taking a class in C++ programming and I've wrote, from scratch, a rather complex application linking and optical system for a two photon microscope in a biophysics lab. I would accept ANY programming related job (paid internship, regular job, or otherwise). Whats the best way to go about doing this? Every job opening/internship seems to want people with all sorts of experience in things like SQL and Java and about everything else under the sun. I guess my question is this: Is it even possible to get something with my current experience (I learn VERY quickly) or should I go back to the soul-destroying world of customer-service jobs until I've actually got more classes under my belt? If it is possible, whats the best route to do so? Like I the headline says, DIRE need here so any help is appreciated.
