Hello everyone!

First off I apologize if this has been posted in the wrong section. The general forum seemed the best place for my question. I am currently a second year college student working towards my BS degree in computer science. My degree is not progressing at the speed I need however, and I would very much like to get a job or internship as soon as possible for the added experience. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction in regards to searching for such a position? All of the programming positions I have been able to find so far require a degree or a number of years experience programming. I am currently teaching myself C++ and Java outside of my classes so that I can be ready for a job, but my lack of a degree or any real experience is dragging me down.

Any advice you guys can give would be much appreciated!
