Discussion on: How did you get your first software developer job?

I had been applying for jobs for a year or so after finishing my MSc in interactive intelligent systems. I was getting nowhere.

My dad talked to the guy in charge of software at the company I would start at. I had a brief interview to make sure I wasn't a dud and then I got the job.

So, my advice is to have good contacts.
