Finding a job

Finding a job is not always as easy as expected. This article will list a few places to look for jobs in the field of electrical engineering.



Contact electrical engineering firms in your area. Even if they do not advertise that they are hiring, send a resume anyways. You never know when a job will become available.


Contact your college or university to see if they know of any employment leads. Many graduates keep in touch with their professors and ask for help when the company they work for has a job opening.


Look at electrical engineering websites and any other engineering related website. They often list employment opportunities.


Get a headhunter to help with the search. Headhunters will determine your job requirements and help find you a job. They are paid by the company who hires you, so it is in their best interest to get you a job as quickly as possible.


Contact a temporary agency to get temporary employment at an electrical engineering firm. This will enable you to get your foot in the door at that company. Even if you are just answering the phones, it will help you get a feel for the environment, you will get to network with other professionals, and you will learn about the engineering business.


Go to as many business related social events as possible to network. Tell EVERYONE that you are looking for a job and collect as many business cards as possible.


Consider being a free intern for 6 weeks. This will enable you to learn about the business. Interns are have a high probability of being hired on full time once their internship is over.


Look at as many employment websites as possible, such as Career Builder and Monster. Post your resume on these sites if that feature is available. Don’t forget to look for jobs that allow you to work from home.


While looking for a job, consider getting an advanced degree in engineering. There are many traditional and online options for schooling.
