Default Any advice for a final year engineering graduate?

Currently, am in my final year in NTU. (1 academic semester + 1 full semester internship left)

I do not have much internship experiences, and is thus quite worried at finding a good job. The only previous internship I have done was when I was in polytechnic which is nothing much. Thus I am lacking much at working experiences, as I did not spent time doing intern during my summer break.

The only good thing I would have to brag about is my academic achievement, my grades are at first class honour range. (above that, was admitted to dean list every single year)
Other than that, just a normal member in few school clubs

What would be some stuff that I can do to improve my CV? Will have exactly another year before I graduate, am only able to do a 5months internship that ends on June next year. Should I try to stuff in another internship after next June and start work later?

What you can do is to find managers, colleagues or even bosses whom you have worked with to write you a positive recommendation and put that into your CV.

Since you have good grades, you can also ask your prof, lecturers for a recommendation. On a second thought, you better do so as your first class honor is going to depreciate steeply once you step out of school.

I think you should get prepare yourself for the interviews and you can ask it to the senior of your branch. It depends upon your choice what kind of job and business you should like just start preparation.
