I graduated in September with a bachelor degree in Computer Science. I didn't have a job lined up before graduating and am still looking for work related to the degree (though I have been working an unrelated job). Given some comments in Including current job if completely unrelated to position applying for it sounds like the norm is to have work lined up before graduating.
If it is expected to have a job lined up before graduating, what should I be doing at this point (aside from applying for jobs)? Even if it's not expected to have a job lined up for right after graduation, it's been 5 months since then. Things I have been doing is maintaining activity on my github account and keeping up to date with new technology (e.g. Angular 2). Is there anything else I can do? I had one potential company but they said they needed to fill the opening before I graduated. At what point does it look bad that a recent grad hasn't found work in his field?
EDIT: the school I went to does not provide any placement help for its graduates.
