Hi guys,
I have a Bachelor's degree in Math, and decided to pursue a Master's in Computer Science. But I have to take some prerequisites before I can start the Master's program.
I am currently taking programming methods II, and the language used is Java.
I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice/insight on how to get internships or part-time jobs in that field, especially here in New York City.
I've applied for some positions so far, but it seems that you need a previous experience just to get an internship.

Ever more internships are not used to give students work experience but to give companies cheap labour.

Try getting an internship at a university or college, research departments there in non-IT fields often need people and are willing to take in students (at least over here).

Or try to get an internship through your university. Most here have an office dedicated to helping students finding something. Helps to have someone cutting through some of the red tape for you.
