Ah, the days of yore, when we had no idea what our careers would become. Being a university student is an exhilarating time, but it can also be stressful. Whether you are a Computer Science major or a Sociology major, you can succeed as an engineer!
Hi, I was creating a website for a local business this fall and was going to ask would you guys recommend using an online template that's already made or should I actually try to code in the template using CSS? I know that using a template can be easier such as by using squarespace but am unsure of how that will come off on my resume.
I live in India, I aspire to work in a product-based company in the United States as a Senior Software Engineer.
There are a couple of approaches that I know of so I will jot them down:
If there is a pathway or any other resources to follow please help.
I am a MS in CS graduating this December and am looking for SWE or ML related roles in the USA. I am applying to many places but have not received followups in the form of an OA/interview. I had the same problem when I applied to internships last year and didnt have much luck even later. Since then I have improved my resume and have started applying early but still fear the same outcome.
It would be great if someone could help me with suggestions on why this is happening and some advice to overcome it.
I viewed the presented by Alex and Rahul, and in the video, Alex's resume was featured. It consisted of three sections: work experience, projects, and education.
For a recent graduate without any work experience, is it acceptable to have just the projects and education sections in their resume? Or does it seem too limited, potentially having a downside when applying for jobs?
I want to network with more senior engineers, especially those in the Taro community and within the companies I intern at, but I am scared to approach them.
I ask myself "what would make it interesting/fun/educational for someone to talk to me or mentor me?" (Rahul's advice ), but I can't really think of a reason why someone would want to talk to a college student like me. I don't want a coffee chat to feel like I'm just bombarding them with questions, but I also find it difficult to bring anything valuable to the table.
How can I effectively network with others with limited experience as a college student? What would make an engineer want to chat with and/or mentor a college student?
Lately, I have been finding myself with a lot of free time and am unable to shake this feeling that I am not "doing enough." After finishing my school work, I usually just go to the gym, hang out with friends, or play video games.
Is there anything else I can do to further improve myself as an engineer and set myself up for success later on? Perhaps some books or resources to read.
I've tried working on some side projects, but honestly find it hard to follow through with them due to lack of urgency with no deadlines and prior fatigue from working on school assignments.
I'm currently doing my 2nd internship, and I have time to do another one before I graduate (I'm currently doing a traditional ~4 year university Computer Science degree). What can I do to lock in a great additional internship for that last slot?
