Engineering Mechanical Engineering good career options

  1. Apr 20, 2009 #1
    Hey all...

    I've got a good friend of mine who's graduating this May from University of Alaska Fairbanks with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He's also getting married this July and moving to Indiana (around Warsaw) to be with his wife while she finishes up a degree.

    My question is this... for someone like that, what would be good career options? Any idea of where he could work? Or maybe someone that would hire a fresh college graduate to get experience in his field?

    At this point, he's getting ready to settle for a janitorial job somewhere and honestly, I think staying in his field would be a better idea.

    Thanks so much for your input!

    There are a vas number of options for an ME, it is a very broad engineering field. He can try browsing Monster.com to see what is out there. I can't imagine why someone would give up on a job hunt before even trying it.
