I have a question about applying to software engineering internships. I don't have much experience because I was fortunate enough to get a position at a good company last summer. This time, not so lucky.
I've applied to about 40 companies so far, to some that's a lot, but keep in mind there are a lot of opportunities out there for software engineering. My interest is more front-end/web development, so I focused more on web-based startups rather than bigger corporations (but I still applied nonetheless).
I've gotten call backs for more interviews with a handful of those companies, 5 or 6. However, one recently just told me no (my experience is great but they can't match me with anything opened right now... sort of a generic response). Is it possible they might contact me if their headcount falls short later in the spring? Another way of putting this is - should I expect to never hear from them regarding a summer 2013 internship or there might be a small small chance that I'll get reconsidered?
