Hi there! I'm not sure if this is exactly against the rules and Career Wednesday is a few days away so I figured I'd try anyway...

I just graduated with my Bachelor's degree majoring in Materials and Metallurgical engineering. I'm an average student and I don't have co-op or any real engineering work experience. These days, I'm trying to land pretty much anything to get myself started; EIT/technologist jobs are nice but I'm also open to trying out internships...

Anyway, I'm just curious: how did you land your first job? How long did it take you? Any advice for someone like me? :D

I had experience and references from internships. Beyond that, i applied, got interviewed, got offers, got a job. It took a couple months back in 2005 before the economy crashed.

Internships are good and better than nothing. You might want to practice your interview skills too.

Good luck.
