Main Question or Discussion Point

With regards to the electrical engineering field, do you beleive it is possible to maybe find some work before graduating, (i.e. before you have a full bachelors degree,) So that you can practice what you've been taught in college, in order to retain the skills, and to get experience also ? Agree or disagree, how so ?

Absolutely. It may not be prestigious work (since you're not degreed yet), but experience in your field is valuable.

Are you looking for a temporary, part time, or full time job?

My nephew worked in the engineering department of a paper mill each summer break after his 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year of college. By the time he had graduated as a degreed chemical engineer, he had lots of valuable work experience in his field, and professional references that got him job offers as a senior. No job-search for that young fellow. He was recruited into a great job.

So it's not only possible, but desirable.

Look into internships. Although you may not get paid, they are a great way to get your foot in the door, and gain valuable experience that will help build your resume.
