Internships / Jobs
Where are you guys located, and would you be interested in ever doing things like internships for new software engineers?
I, too, am interested. I have no degree. I'm self-taught, and have plans to go to college or a bootcamp, but so far have not been able to. I know Python and some Ruby. (as well as HTML/CSS, but who doesn't?)
If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to email me at:
Edit: I'm in the Tulsa, OK area.
I've improved my skills, started at a college, and still found nothing. No one wants non-degree holding employees, for the most part. Me being a white male, not fitting any of the descriptors for underrepresented minorities, my chances of finding a job without a degree are pretty slim. I don't know if that translates to all areas, but it seems to be pretty true, here in OK.
I spoke too soon, perhaps? It's just frustrating how exclusive the software community is to beginners.
