Hello PF I have a BS in Physics and I am currently enrolled in a Masters of Electrical Engineering program. I have had significant difficulty finding jobs/ Interns despite my efforts. I will complete my program in a year and I feel like I am no closer to finding a job. Sometimes I really question if engineering is really the field everyone makes it out to be. I am pursuing it because its something that I really want to do. But I have to admit sometimes I get tempted by the success of other professions. And I have read that some other engineers have the same or a similar problem in job search. Essentially unless a) you had a personal affiliation with someone at a company b) you had internship/co-op with said company "competitive process" c) you had worked a engineering job prior to your education, so upon graduation you get the same job with better pay or transfer to another company, the chances of you having a job will be an uphill battle despite having an BS or MS engineering. I am really trying to ask for some advice. Thank You.
