Hi there, Computer Science student here. Here are some things you can do to build up your cv:

- Take online short courses FutureLearn offers mini courses by Accenture and Samsung and they look good on a cv (make sure to select the 'free digital upgrade option - then you can get a certificate of completion)

- Unidays also offers free Microsoft certifications

- Forage offers virtual work experience

- Springpod offers similar opportunities to forage

In regards to where to apply and when; start applying in your first year - it's best to get work experience early, there are a lot of companies too:
- Google
-Apple
-Nvidia
-Sky
-BAE Systems
- Samsung
-Microsoft
-PlayStation
-Sega
- and many more

I recommend these websites to look for them:

-Indeed
-Gradcracker
-Monster
Total Jobs
-Target Jobs
-Milkround
- CV library
- Handshake (you'll probably get an account when you start uni)

Hope this helps, Good Luck! :smile:
