Hello everyone, I am Walter, a second-year computing science student at Simon Fraser University in Canada. I've already taken some programming and software engineering courses. My question is, can I apply for a software position. My goal is to gain hands-on working experience, and working in team, in the really environment. Thank you very much for your help

Well said Rita.

You can always apply. You may not get the job, but you can try. Of course, since if you don't try, you will most certainly not get the job, it's usually worth trying. No one ever achived success by thinking that they won't be able to succeed.

Good luck. Let us know how your search turns out.

as you said, you want to gain some experience, so i suggest that you can create open project, and put it on the internet(Source Forge, java.net etc), so others know your progress, and it is a good proof that you have experienced some real world problem.

That is a good point. I will consider that if I can squeeze some time from my course work. Thank you again.
