Anybody want me to shadow them?

I'm not having much success applying for internships or even voluntary roles. At this point, I just need to be in a programming environment and watch a professional do his job.

Would anybody be willing to allow me to shadow them a few days a week? Maybe I can look for bugs or write documentation or something. I don't mind doing random errands either but the main thing is I want to learn about the software development process.

I'd only ask that my travel expenses get covered. I'm based in London, let me know if you are interested.

Okay then I'll add some more information:

Title: Recently Certified Java OCAJP 7 Programmer

Objective: Build some real life experience whilst I am studying for the OCJP 7 exam and applying for a Junior Java Developer role.

- Oracle Certified Java 7 Associate Programmer. Passed in Jan 2014 with 78%
- BSc in Computer Science with Games Technology at City University, achieved 2:2 in 2007

- No commercial Java experience. But I did write a Tic Tac Toe application with basic AI and Swing
- 2008-2013 I worked as a repair engineer before I was made redundant. I would repair security equipment, analyse equipment log data, troubleshoot over the phone, maintain records and work with bespoke software. I worked within a team and also independently without supervision. I also provided full office and reception support.

- In addition to studying for the OCJP7, I have been reading through Head First Servlets and JSP. I was able to set up Tomcat and write a very simple application using Servlets and MVC.

Presently located in London. Can be contacted via private messages or email:
