I was hoping to get some vacation work during the summer holidays in the computer science department at university, but unfortunately this year there aren’t many positions available and I didn’t get one. I’m not too disappointed though – I had hoped to get a position because my tutor mentioned that there might be some Java stuff on – because I’m only a first year and I don’t think we’re top of the list anyway.
I really need to find something to do over the summer though, preferably something which earns money so that I can prepare for next year when I’ll be renting private accomodation. f2o is offering an internship which looks interesting, although unfortunately I’ll probably be ineligible because they’re in a different timezone. I might apply anyway though, because it’d be good experience. Unfortunately it’s an unpaid position but perhaps I can get a job working elsewhere at the same time to bring in some money.
