Regards! (Not from programming background, a fresh grad took up programming, 4 months ago)
I have been learning core java and javaScript for 3 months and now offered a no-stipend internship offer from a startup and the work is with PHP and javaScript. What should be my strategy to bag the job after the end of the internship?

 

Go for it , opportunities are not common in today's competitive tech market!

 

Hello Sai! Congrats on the internship!

If I were you, I would focus on showing my enthusiasm for the company's products and goals. So dont merely complete your tasks. Show interest in how your tasks and the team's work fits into the global company vision. Show concern for the impact of your code on the company's bottom line or vision. Ask lots of questions. Ask to pair with senior programmers. Ask for feedback say every 3 weeks: "Is there anything I can improve in my work?" for example.

I wish you all the favor in the world :D
