I recommend looking for free coding courses or computer clubs to practice skills and improve your abilities and languages. GitHub is a great place for an open source coding community to get feedback, practice your skills, and develop a portfolio for employers to review. For the internship, research the company, make contact to determine what is available, and if it is paid or unpaid so you know whether you have to work or not while interning.
Grant recommends the following next steps:
- Build a coding profile.
- Research the companies you want to intern with and see what they are offering.
- Determine if the internship is paid or unpaid.
