  • Many of the Microsoft Virtual Academy courses offer free training and include sample projects. Often these courses will create a large project along the way using the technologies they are describing in the course. More information can be found here: Microsoft Virtual Academy

    Other .NET sample projects can be found through the MSDN Developer code samples page: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/

    However, building these projects is only the first step to achieving a job as a software developer. Many employers nowadays are looking to see if developers are active in the developer community. Do they have a GitHub account? Do they share their code? Do they contribute to other open source projects? Demonstrating a pattern of involvement will provide you with a portfolio of code you can show during your interviews.

  • If you know how to write Apps for the App Store, write an application and upload it to the Store. If it is any good, you may make some money out of the sales. Even if it doesn't sell much, you can still mention it in your CV or your interviews to demonstrate your experience as a developer of a commercial application.

    If you are a developer of web applications, develop your own web site to promote yourself, publish it at a free web hosting provider and show it to your potential employers so that they can see your abilities as a web developer.
