I was forwarded an interesting Facebook event invitation today, someone seeking a job!
Here is the deal, our hero today is Paul a recent uni graduate in Engineering majoring in Robotics and Mechatronics and minoring in Mechanical Design Engineering with 18 months professional experience. Paul is having issues getting a job, so he put a call out to his Facebook friends to see who might be able to help him get a job. I like the idea.
I have posted his text below, but also see the Paul wants to be an Engineer!!! event on Facebook:
Hi there Facebook friends!
So, here’s the story;
I have just graduated from university with a Bachelors Degree in Engineering majoring in Robotics and Mechatronics and minoring in Mechanical Design Engineering. Along with this, I earned Class 2 Div A (Distinction) Honours.
I have also had over 18 months professional engineering experience with 14 months of that being employed at Bosch Australia.
The only problem is that I am finding it EXTREMELY difficult to find a job in this current global financial climate.
As you are all aware, in any industry it’s all about WHO you know and not WHAT you know.
So, I’m appealing to you to see if ANYONE has any contacts in the engineering world that could help me in getting my engineering career started!
I’m not too fussy with what position I’m looking for but I would prefer it to be in a capital city with a medium to large sized company with good career prospects in the automation/robotics/mechanical/engineering consultation areas.
There will also be prizes for the person who helps me land my first job 🙂
I have cover letters and resumes available upon demand.
Thanks heaps guys, any help will be greatly appreciated!
Oh and if you happen to know someone looking for a graduate engineer you might want to drop him a line.
