I am currently working as a mechanical design engineer with Barry Grant,inc. My question to you is are you familiar with any solid modeling cad software? Most companies these days worth working for will almost surely want prospective caidate's to be somewhat proficient insolid modeling. Note that i do not mean crap like "auto-cad", but real 3-d like solid works, or pro-e.Before i got my job at B.G., I had posted my resume on Monster.com. Because i had cad skills, honest to god I had calls coming within less than 24 hours. I was able to name my salary( with the help of the head hunter), and started work in 30 days.Since then I have traveled all around the U.S., and last year I spent 42 days in Hong Kong and the P.R.C. I strongly urge you to learn to "draw" if you do not know how. If you like, p.m. me on icq, and i can get you some software for you to try. As far as the job situation, if automotive is your goal, contact Elan Composites. in Georgia. They have indy-car and formula mazda chassis'stacked to the celing. They are always looking for bright young minds. Good luck in your job quest.
