Book review: Landing the Internship or Full-Time Job

Slashdot has published book review of Landing the Internship or Full-Time Job by Robert R. Peterson.

ADVERTISEMENTS

This book written by those that have recently landed jobs at Google, EA Games, Intel, Amazon, IBM, and others. The book starts out with a foreword by an IBM Executive and then covers 10 chapters which I comment on individually below. Each chapter is followed by a profile from either an intern or new hire at a fortune 50 company. The profiles include a Q&A and the resume of the individual. I found them to be practical and honest. For example, Ben Lewis who is profiled as an Xbox developer said that he sometimes feels that he can’t make a difference at Microsoft.

As a busy computer science student, I can really appreciate how the contents are written. Each chapter has a “Bare Minimum To Do” list with suggestions on how much time each item should take. They also include “Common Mistakes” sections. I especially used the to-do list for the company research chapter“. Read full review at slashdot
