Hello all!, Backstory: I recently graduated with a BSc in physics a month ago. I have been looking to get hired by a certain company since the start of my senior year. The position I was after was a process engineer, however I have not heard back from the company for that position, which I applied to over a month ago. I have been in full grind mode, applying nonstop to engineering positions to various companies since graduation. However, with few replies back I decided to apply to my dream company as a technician through a recruiter; considering the pay would still be roughly twice my current income. I was recently hired on to my dream company as a tech II which, in the job description says it requires 3 years experience and an associates or BSc degree in engineering(not shown as preferred). Question/s: Is this a reasonable route to take as a 'foot in' to the company and working my way up to an engineer or is that an unusual case? Should I hold out for strictly engineering positions? Thank you in advance for the responses.
