David’s Answer

Many years ago, I started a degree in Mechanical Engineering. My interest was to use it to help me become an inventor and I was told that would be a good way to get started. Along the way, I decided it was not the path for me, but I am grateful for what I learned in the program. I did learn to become flexible along with the way and think of alternate solutions that still were worth my time to build. After a detour through a non-technical degree, I found myself back in a technical role and now leading other technical professionals.

I am not familiar with your current location and what opportunities are available, but you may need to search a little and see what is available from other locations, different industries, etc. It might be good to find a strong company that does the kind of work that you would like to do and find out how to get started with them, even if not starting out in your dream job. I have found you can have more than one dream to pursue in your life. So, be flexible and patient as you get started, but never give up on what makes you happy, even if you start it out as a hobby.

Nirmala’s Answer

Hello there! Something that has worked for me in the past is active and passive networking. Have you been in LinkedIn looking for professionals in the company that you are looking to get hired?

In my prior job searches, I would reach out to LinkeIn contacts to introduce myself and let them know that I am interested to learn more about their role and the company. I have been successful about 50% of the time in getting an audience. And then you build on these conversations and let them know that you are interested in exploring opportunities.

While it is definitely a difficult time for job search, there is plenty of opportunities for recent graduates. Good luck!

Dinesh babu’s Answer

Certainly it has been an challenging period for new college grads, the most important aspect to keep in mind during this time period is to be patient and continuous self updating. You can find vast informative study materials over the internet. Keep updating along your line of interest. In parallel, reach out to all your contacts from school and colleges(especially seniors in colleges) for any openings they might have come across. Also expand your job search areas as well, for example in addition to engineering , if you like coaching/teaching you can explore those aspect as well. Lastly, be patient and have strong perseverance. Best wishes.

Dinesh babu recommends the following next steps:

Self update
Reach out to contacts
Expand job search spectrum
Patient

Kevin’s Answer

I suggest you advertise your capabilities of problem solving. I am also a ME, but never used my degree after joining the Army. But what the degree did offer me is a strong background in solving problems, both independently and in a team. I would expand your search to areas of quality assurance, process engineering or in an operations type of role - in my company I have seen engineers hired into these roles to help solve business problems.

Glenn S.’s Answer

I also graduated in a tough year, nothing as hard as it is now for early career hires. With people working remotely, it is harder to train engineers straight out of college. The good news is, is that the market is hot, and there are not enough experienced engineers to fill the roll. Working is important, better if it is related to engineering. Having a good clean resume (One Page, highlights your interests, projects from college, any work experience). [Emphasis on One Page. I get a lot of 2 and 3 page resumes from people who have not worked and I will not read them.] Keep applying to anything related and don't focus on salary, just get the experience.

Glenn S. recommends the following next steps:

Get a good One Page resume. Highlight your interests
Apply Apply Apply. Anywhere and everywhere. Any location and job with your background. Be willing to move. Any job, any location, no restrictions
Prepare for interview questions. Look on line for example questions. When asked about your ideal role, make that role sound ideal for you.
