I'm proficient in Python and C. I know C++, Scala, Javascript, Scala, PHP. Major projects for all these languages that I can show.

I have 200+ pull requests on GitHub.

I've done 3 internships (Soft Eng, Data scientist, DL Researcher) in France that all went exceedingly well (refs available).

Is there any US companies that would accept to sponsor me for a J1 for a Soft Eng internship?

    Literally nobody gives a shit about your accomplishments. Can you leetcode? That’s what gets you the job.

      I can leetcode like a god, but to show my leetcode mastery I need to get an interview first.

      I don't think that anybody here would refer for an internship position. Would you?

      Sure I would, why not? I referred whoever asked me.

      I've applied to a lot of internships last year but I didn't get any responses from US companies.

      Why not apply for a regular job? Internships are arguably harder to get because they are fewer in number and very specific

      My school requires me to do a 6-month internship before graduating. This is why I'm looking for an internship rather than a full time job.

    Have you resume reviewed if you aren't getting interviews. Your skillset and background are more than enough to get an interview despite needing sponsorship.

    You sound like you're completely insufferable as a person. I hope that's not true.
