I want to know how students usually get into good engineering jobs. To me I see no examples or have not met anyone that has came out from a degree in electrical engineering to get a job, and I don't mean just any simple soldering job, I mean advanced stuff like you see on indeed where they require knowledge of building services, CAD, Zuken 3D.
So far to me all I had observed is that the only people that have good jobs in EE, are those who've completed their degree a while ago, everyone I knew at college were on £7 an hour jobs, which you could get from being unskilled. The same was the case with electricians, I don't really know anyone that had came out of college with the job, if they were they were on apprenticeships for £2.50 an hour.
It would probably be easier to take a look at those in the industry that have good jobs, then copy what they do.
I see on the college's adverts boasting about how %95 of people come out with a job or go onto the next course, I wonder what that statistic would be if it were judging what percentage got a job, or even a good job, my gut feeling is suggesting that most people come out with low paid jobs. Maybe I'll be different, but if i'm going in, I've got to know what type of people get these jobs, I'd say it was next to impossible for someone 22 to get a career ahead of them in engineering, to me it just looks like it's all older people that completed their degree ages ago and could *actually* get experience.
What percentage of students get a job in Electrical Engineering?
