How can a recent graduate get into the Solar Industry?

  1. Nov 4, 2012 #1
    I am a mechanical engineering B.S. graduate 3 years corporate engineering experience. I've developed a passion for solar energy over the past year. However, jobs are short for early-life engineers like me. How do I get started as an engineer in a company like FirstSolar and NanoSolar? They are all asking for 10+ years experience.

    Start with someone who doesn't require 10+ years of experience...?

    Or, get 10+ years of experience in the job you have now and then apply!

    (Any company that asks for "n+ years of experience" will certainly consider a person with less experience if they can't get a person with that experience.)
