any CS graduates here?
what what is like, what job do you have now?
is it Java related by any chance?
what can be expected for the thesis (a paper or project)
>inb4 CS a meme degree
I'll still be a wage-cuck of third level, where I get paid triple the scum wage-cucks

Unemployed, I love it too.

>software developer at a major bank
>Java and C++
However there are teams using all kinds of different crap and internal mobility is encouraged so you can work with whatever you want pretty much.

CS course material is completely useless when it comes to jobs, your school's reputation matters though. The most important part is that you spend your free time writing software.
Good school + great programming experience + couple of weeks spent mindlessly memorizing interview material = easy job at any company.

As for the final thesis, it will vary a lot. There are many different things you can do. It will essentially consist of defining a problem, researching the solution and making an implementation of it in some language.
To pass, you don't need anything original. You're given a well researched domain, where your job is to read through some papers and books, summarize them, implement some algorithms and benchmark them, etc.

Degree in physics here but I have minimal programming experience. I'd say about 5 months of self-learning C++. Cannot land a programming job no matter how hard I try.

Is it worth doing an MSc in CS or should I just keep self learning and hope I eventually get lucky?

>Cannot land a programming job no matter how hard I try.

Have you tried applying for programming jobs at companies who will appreciate your physics degree and also do programming? I'm thinking engineering type jobs, or jobs that involve maths? Which I assume you must have a fair bit of having done physics. Maybe, medical imaging or defence type stuff. I have hired this type of person in the past.

You might end up having to.

Actually no, not really. I've only been applying for "graduate developer" and "junior developer" jobs, regardless of the company. I've just been desperate to get any programming job because I think it will be infinitely easier to get a new and better one once I'm already in employment.

I will try looking into more specialised fields where physics and maths is useful. Audio programming has always appealed to me.

Dude just get a job at Goldman Sachs

>>52410441
I think you still need to be a good coder to work at Goldman Sachs as a physicist. They also only hire from MIT-tier schools.

>any CS graduates here
yep I'm one, graduated last May.
>what job do you have now?
full-stack web development.
>is it Java related by any chance?
sure is, the backend is written in Java.
>what can be expected for the thesis (a paper or a project)
for my shitty university, either one would be acceptable for an honors thesis. non-honors students didn't have to do any sort of final project.

You don't use most of what you learn in school.
