Today I have officially graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from Temple University. I can't say my degree has prepared me for any specific field, but instead has left me with a broad foundation with which to build upon. My grades have always been good and my professors have confidence in my ability; however, I feel that my lack of experience is going to make it difficult to land a job.
Stress is starting to take its toll because I don't have a stable source of income and am hesitant to apply for a "regular" summer job in case I do get hired. Perhaps I underestimated how difficult this process was going to be.
