If you can pick companies that you like, see their job postings and learn everything that they want.

Most larger companies recruit interns for the Summer in the Fall and at this point are already on to interviewing the top candidates.
In my country it's tough to find a job even as a programmer and finding a programming job over the summer is almost mission impossible.

I've been developing some apps for Android but I'm still learning. I guess I should publish some apps on Google Play and show them so I could improve my chances.

You seem pretty knowledgeable about the subject. Are you a programmer as well or you just know a lot about these stuff ?

Also I've seen a Work and Travel program. Basically I need to pay like $1000 + tickets + visa and I can work in the USA but it's mostly in smaller cities and jobs don't have any relation with programming.

Yeah I'm about to graduate with a CS and Math degrees in the Spring.

Android apps are a good start but make sure to learn more than Java. You can focus on mobile development since there's a lot of demand for it right now but don't end up being a one trick pony. You can start by adding a web back end to your apps.

Most companies these days have public APIs or open source projects that they contribute to. If you want to get their attention try to tailor to their needs by either building something using their APIs or contributing to their projects.

If you have any more questions feel free to pm me.

Real GM.


Makes you Knicks ish fans look really sharp. A lot of posts and threads to read. I only found that site about a couple months ago but have enjoyed having something to read. Even if it's "Aldrich and th jr are starters" kind of stuff.



I don't need any more time wasting hobbies so in not too upset that I can't post there. I'm assuming half of the posters there are you same guys here, but am I wrong to think its pathetic of whichever of you is the one blocking me from posting there? How many different computer names do you have and how many sites do you post at?



Just wondering if anybody else here has been kept out of your club over there because they have different view than the "company line" says?
