I have worked as a software intern at Fidelity Investments, Boston for 8 months under the Fidelity Investments Management Technology (FIMT) wing. The internship gave me considerable level of understanding in Software Development, Deployment and Troubleshooting, Web Development, Content Management Systems and Business Requirement Analysis.
Job interviews are becoming hard to find; let alone the job. And the scenario worsens if someone needs an H1B sponsoring to work. I know asking favors like this in the Yahoo Answers community is weird. But its just a hope that programmers from different companies would have a look at my skill sets and may be someone would refer me to his company thereby helping me to get an interview slot.
I would be very thankful if you could help me out by forwarding my resume to your respective companies if they are looking for entry-level positions. I apologize for posting a favor like this here. If you need additional info, please let me know.
I have already posted in job boards like collegegrad.com, careerbuilder, etc. But today, everyone knows that a person with a reference has more chances of getting an interview than the one who comes in through the job sites.
I am also aware that I may have to be patient to get my interview calls for all those companies which I have applied. But from your side, I hope a small reference might help a long way.
I’m not the person you’re looking for, but I wanted to give a helpful tip. Besides “software analyst” web analysts are high in demand. With your skills set, you could easily pick it up. If you’re interested, check out Avinash Kaushik.
Don’t just sit around for a job. Get skills.
