Sorry it’s been so long! After finishing my contract at Sheffield University, I was out of work for a couple of months and desperate to get a job sorted. To this end, I’ve been working hard to improve my knowledge of C and it seems to have worked! I was offered a job as a graduate embedded software engineer at Cambridge Medical Robotics three weeks ago. So far so good – They’re a really friendly bunch of talented people and I’m learning a lot!
A big thanks to my mate Jan for putting me forward for the job and inspiring me to go for it and thanks to Al Kelley and Ira Pohl for their book on C. If you’re thinking about a move into software, then my advice would be to get stuck in. My experience was really positive at all the interviews I attended and hard work is rewarded. Put in the time, really learn your stuff and it will happen.
