Top 6 Reasons Students 🎒 Struggle To Land Software Engineer 💻 Jobs
I’m a big reddit user and have been browsing computer science (CS) subreddits like r/cscareerquestions and others like r/csmajors for a little over five years. I’ve learned a lot, especially from other student’s mistakes. Through the countless posts I’ve read, in this article I go over what I think are the top 6 reasons students struggle to land software engineering roles.
Surprisingly, I put having a bad resume and poor CS fundamentals low on this list. I think students really underestimate the importance of networking and applying early and often. Dear CS students, don’t be a ghost 👻! Networking will valuable for getting referrals, resume reviews or recommendations.
