Hello everyone! =) I am currently a 3rd year Electrical Engineering student at a decent university, and am working towards a BSEE degree with what is currently a 3.8+ cumulative GPA. I have worked here as a paid research assistant and as a teaching assistant (an ECE lab course) for my engineering professors, and have already secured a well-paying internship ($22/hr) for this upcoming summer with a major power distribution company in the mid west area. This is all related to my intended career path, as I am interested in the power industry. Thanks to a generous full-expenses scholarship I received, I will be able to graduate with no college debt. I was hoping to gain some insight on what I can expect as soon as I graduate. My biggest concern is being unemployed for an extensive period of time after graduation. I've also been considering doing a master's degree by taking an additional year of schooling, which will also be covered by the scholarship. My main questions are: 1) Is there such a thing as being "guaranteed employment" after college? What else can i do to increase my chances of being hired straight out of college? 2) Given my situation, how much money can I expect to make when starting my first full-time engineering job? 3) What is your situation like right now? Any advice and comments are greatly appreciated! Thank you, and happy holidays!
