    Mechanical Eng. with no experience !!

    I just got my BS in mech eng. But I do not have any work experience related to Mech Eng.


    what should I put on my resume?? Will employers even bother to hire me ? (my gpa is 3.4)

    Any suggestions would help.

    All the usual stuff, like past jobs (any job shows that you at least know how jobs in general work-the whole reliability, politics, etc.), related coursework, special skills, etc.

    Go to your colleges career fairs and give your resume to the recruiters; they're expecting people with no experience for the types of jobs they're trying to fill. Look for some unpaid internships for recent grads.

    Speak to your university careers service, most will still give advice after graduation and they can help you draft a CV and identify areas of employment.
