I had to turn interviews down lest I get so far behind in school that
I not graduate this semester.
I had multiple attractive offers, 30-ish interviews with 6 or 7
different companies (not counting the ones I turned down), learned a
lot about the local tech climate, and in January I start in the
CoreOS/BSD Technologies group at Apple.
The demand/supply ratio is favorable indeed for CS grads with an
emphasis on systems/low-level software, OS development, etc. I
understand the demand/supply ratio is not quite as good for business
app/Java/.Net developers, but happily for me that's not a portion of
the industry that holds any interest for me.
