I was wondering how one would get a job/internship at a top company like Goggle and Amazon e.g as a Software engineer. How difficult would it be and what steps does one need to take considering they have at least a 2:1 at a top Russel group uni.
Also what are some other job prospects for Computer Science graduates? And what sort of experience should one get before getting a proper job at a decent company?

Getting places at top companies is difficult but not unheard of. Realistically you need to make them notice you (and getting a 2:1 at a Russel Group isn't enough to stand out). Either take an active interest in them and ask or give them a good reason to take an interest in you. Regardless you need to make yourself known to them.
As far as other job prospects go, that's an endless list. Think of anything that uses a computer, from the programming in your washing machine to the apps on your phone. You can go into hardware or software. Anything from designing to building and testing. There are all sorts of other professions such as security. If it has a computer odds are there's at least a handful of potential jobs behind it.
