QuestionCan a recent college graduate get a software job without an internship? Pin

Hi. I have been going around to different discussion forms online asking the same question. I want to know if someone on "codeproject.com" could give me some helpful advice regarding these question also (sorry, my post is a little long).

I am a college student and I am in my third year of college. I have an associate degree in general science and I am studying to earn my bachelor's degree in Computer Science. I have been trying to get an internship to get work experience for the summer of 2020 and even got two phone interviews but regardless I keep being denied the internship positions. Now I wonder if I will even get an internship before I graduate. Due to my dilemma I have some questions:

(1) I am looking at other options as far as work experience is concerned. I think I might have to work at the IT department at my school. Will this help me get at least and entry level/ associate level job in software? This job does not relate to software or programming but it relates to the technology field which is why I picked it.

(2) I have also done a research project remotely and I plan on doing more research projects that are teacher lead. Can this help boost my chances at getting an entry level position after graduation?

(3) Should I do more personal projects? If I put an older personal project on my resume, will an employer think that the project is outdated?

(4) Will my resume look competitive enough without a real internship? Having an internship seems like something employees really want (I guess it ensures that the employee can really code) but I think I am running out of options.

(5) I wanted to do some programming competitions at my school even if I lose the competition. Do you think this can be added to my resume?

(6) I wanted to do this program at my school were you visit a company to see what a typical day is like for someone who does the same job you want to do after graduation. Do you think that this can be added to my resume (I know it's not an internship but I am just looking for ways to make my resume look more competitive).

(7) Some companies say that even if you don't get a job with them, they will save your resume and call you back if any other positions are available. Do you think that even though I did not get some of these internships, they could call me back for other positions (if I at least apply to other positions)?

(8) How early should I apply for a job to ensure that I have a chance of getting the opportunity? If I apply for jobs my last year of college, I might run the risk of not knowing enough information to pass the technical Interview. Plus, I could do more things that I can put on my resume. However, if I wait I might spend 6 months after graduation looking for a job when I could have found one already.

(9) I said that I only got two phone interviews because I emailed about 30 recruiters total that were from the companies I applied to. When I start looking for a real job, do you think it would be a bad idea to email them again? I don't want to bother them but I have no other way to network with some of these recruiters.

(10) I wonder if I would be ready to do a job in software if I never worked in the field before. An internship would have helped with this but I think I might need to have a second plan in case I don't get an internship. Do you think an entry level job will be an ok way to learn about the job (if you are willing to try and learn) or should I just get an internship after college.

If anyone can help answer even one of these questions (since I know I wrote a lot), I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
