Hello very good, I am a student of DAW+ bioinformatics, and I am in my last year if any bioinformatics company is interested in having a young man with a lot of motivation and desire to learn to send me a message.

My git hub is https://github.com/scarbajosa20

I think this normally goes the other way around. You should prepare your CV, write a nice cover letter explaining why you'd like to work on whatever it is you want to work on wherever it is you want to work at, and email the appropriate people (e.g., PI or HR depending on whether it's academia or the industry). Good luck!!

Edit: also, probably not the best idea to leave you personal email address exposed like that (if it's your main account).

You are absolutely right but since I am new to the sector and I do not want to enter a pure programming company if not programming for biology / science I wrote in the forum if someone can help me but I will try to find what you told me!

I would recommend looking up NGS companies/laboratories and university departments that are involved in bioinformatics. In general, pretty much every biology lab at most universities have some level of "bioinformatics" going on now, so I'd presume they're always looking for people who're interested in and willing to work on the available projects.

I cannot comment on whether the people here can help you find a position though. But job offers do get posted here regularly, so this is a good space to watch, I suppose.

I agree that this is a good space to watch, but like you said, the directionality is weird here. Usually, people with an open position create a posting and interested potential employees can contact them. I don't think potential employers would spend time looking for "Job wanted" posts. In fact, I even think such posts reflect a tad negatively, especially if one does not have a significant and impressive online profile.

I think OP is a young person, all new to this. While Google and other search engines bring information to our finger tips, they also bring overwhelming amounts of it, and perhaps OP wasn't entirely sure what the best approach would be. At this point it's becoming hard enough just figuring out the right search terms sometimes, but I digress.

I do agree that this would look a bit bad should a prospective employer see it somehow, but I also feel that upon further introspection--should that person be inclined to do so--it'd make the impression that the OP is being resourceful: they did come and ask quite candidly after all.

And at the end of the day, if this person becomes interested in bioinformatics because of the (hopefully) positive interactions here, and contributes to the field some day some way, I'd say it's a win!

Do you have a website? Maybe a GitHub account that you wish to showcase? Your post here gives zero reasons for a potential employer to contact you - that is, assuming employers are looking at posts stating "I'm looking for jobs" and not at recruiting people actively contributing on the forum (which is more proof of subject matter knowledge than just a statement saying "I'm highly motivated").

Agree. Thank you very much now I will change the post and put my github!

I think you misunderstood one of my points - I said that a statement saying "I'm highly motivated" will not be helpful.
