A big thank you

Posted 05 May 2011 - 10:13 AM

This time last year, I was struggling to loop the value that the user inputted on a command screen.
Now, thanks to Dream.In.Code, I've managed to impress a well known software developing company with my knowledge gained from here enough to give me a 3 month internship (with the possibility of a full time job after my degree).
It doesn't sound like much, but it's one step closer to my goal and it will put me in a much better position after I finish my degree.
I've tried to give back as much as I can, but I don't think I could ever repay this community enough for all the help you guys have given me :)

Anyways, I would like to give a big thank you, especially the guys in the C#/C++/XNA/Game programming forums :)

Glad to see we've helped you out and inspired you to give back by helping other new programmers. :) Round and round the wheel goes.

Congratulations on the internship! That's a huge step to getting where you want to be, and from what I've seen of your progress over the last few months on this site, you've earned it. I hope it lands you exactly where you want to be one day.

I'll be doing a months training which will mostly be watching what the pros do and understanding how they handle source control etc.
Then after that, I was told that I'll be having a much more hands on approach.
Can't wait! :)

Congratulations on securing your position mate, fingers crossed it leads to gainful employment once you've finished your Degree! ;)

Having stumbled across this community relatively recently myself, I've also been overwhelmed by the wealth of knowledge and personal expertise of everyone here. Posted Image

Use the internet to your advantage!
I signed up to as many student job sites as I could.
About 99% of the internships I found were for graduates, so make sure you let them know that you're a second year as otherwise they will not call you back when they find out.
Make sure you have a website/blog that shows your enthusiasm and skills.

This is basically what I did, and after 4 months I finally found an internship :)
