Took your advice, reduced it to one page

Would you call me up for an interview or throw this in the bin?

Thanks for the tips , I will try shorten it to one page this evening, maybe by changing layout, adding bullet points, font size etc..

One question though, I have included a college course which I did not finish, multimedia. Is it a good idea to include this or not? does it convey that I wasnt able to finish it, or would the employer look at the 3 year gap between secondary school and my current course and wonder why nothing was included if I left it out?

also, yes I have a separate CV for games development, have to do a few things to my portfolio before I start sending that one out though

I am currently looking for an internship or just some work experience (difference?) in software development. If somebody could have a look at my CV please and tell me if its awful / what changes to make before I apply.

this might be simple/ might not be simple

the assignment is to make an mp3 player with a folder full of mp3's that the player will be able to access and play mp3s from it. I have it working fine in that it gets the filepath of the mp3's and isable to play them just fine...

The problem I am envisioning is that the filepath that I have hardcoded into my code will only work from my computer, when I hand the project up TOMORROW , it will not work on my lecturers computer when he is marking it.

This filepath is my memory stick (Where I have eclipse installed) , its in 'MyTunes v2.1' project folder, 'myTune_v2_1' package,,, this is where the classes are and the 'mp3s' folder is in same place.

When I hand it up TOMORROW , the filepath will be wrong but I am handing up the whole project folder so I am hoping there is a way I can just put \\mp3s\\" +filePath); ,,, but I have tried this and it doesnt work.

Any help is greatly appreciated and a quick reply is even more so , as I have already said I have to hand this up in 12 hours time.

Hey thanks for reply,

yea my major consideration is good marks, just starting programming and liking it..
So I went and made a 'Card' class and it works but...... I have a feeling my code is kindof bloated and im trying to cut down on the amount of code (this is what lecturers are telling us to do),

heres what I have so far, this is my Calculator class

And here is my Card class

What i want to know is any way of lessening this code? Is there a way I can get rid of all those separate printCard*() methods?

again any help is greatly appreciated

OKay so i have assignment called mystery calculator, it seems simple enough but im stuck on how to arrange it..
What initially has to be done is that i have 6 'cards' populated with a series of numbers which cant be hardcoded ..

what i have so far is

My Question is: should i have a separate class called Card and instantiate the 6 arraylists there? or should i have one arraylist in a Card class and one araylist in Calculator class and somehow do it like that? im new to this and relly could do with some help much appreciate
