I am 19 and am a student in my second year of Software Engineering. Although I have no experience, I am trying to build programs using Unity and put it on Github to show employers that I have a portfolio of work to compensate for my inexperience.
I am meant to be applying for placements for my second year but I am having little luck as there are hundreds of applicants and a sparse number of placements around my location. I am reluctant to move out due to other problems but I see a lot of junior developer jobs. Is it possible for me to work as a junior developer for a year, do my last year then continue working? Maybe I can ask if they can take me on as an intern? Or is it not even worth my time or theirs for that matter that I apply to junior developer jobs while still studying?
