Just Do It
|Tons of people have messed with a Kinect before, but|
that doesn't make it any less a neat project to do!
Do it Right
|While it's easy to make a virtual reality app, making|
one and maintaining 60 fps is tough but necessary in
the field, especially on a smartphone.
Try Something Crazy
|While my senior project didn't hold up like I wanted, I|
learned a ton of valuable information about indoor
GPS systems, which is something I can now talk
about more as a result.
I know a lot of this seems ridiculous, and that if it's that easy, everyone must do it, but in reality, it doesn't happen all that often. During my time at my university, I'd met very few people who did projects outside of class, and even fewer who put them online. While following these tips doesn't guarantee you a job, it definitely is a big step in the right direction, and can help get past the resume screening process. Don't rely on this to get the entire job for you, but use it as a ladder to climb with, and start from there.
