Tips from Engineering Professionals:

 

  • During college - create a Linkedin Account. Make sure you have a professional email account. You could do this in high school, but would be better in college. Good place to network and find employment.
  • Resumes - keep to one page until you have 3-5 years of work experience.
  • Job Search - Follow up with email and/or phone calls! Do not wait for the employer to make the next move.
  • Internships/Co-ops - Start to apply after winter break your Freshman Year in college. Look for lesser known companies! (not just GM, Ford, etc...). Many openings go unfilled due to lack of applicants.
  • Networking: Keep a list of contacts that you make along the way and where you met them. They can be used in the future for advice and employment!
