    Hi all

    Recently graduated with a 2.1 in Aerospace Engineering.

    I was wondering if anyone can provide some input as to what their next step would be (I'd like a job, not after additional academic study).

    What jobs would you look into?

    Look forward to your input!

    Yes, after I graduate. I did not do a sandwich year so no relevant work experience.

    Going to be helpful, or attempt to criticize me?

    rickfloss has a point. without work experience you're kind of screwed in today's market. Is BA really going to hire a guy who has only ever seen pictures of a jet engine to fix their planes?

    I see he has a point, however it is incredibly hard to get any experience. There aren't exactly vacancies for voluteering - otherwise I would.

    I'm confused at the moment what direction to go in, so was hoping someone could give some advice based on their experience etc.

    So I'd appreciate some advice really, if anyone can offer any.

    What is the assumption of magic short cuts? Honestly you are reading the post wrong.

    A D V I C E - preferably based on actual experience, which judging by whats so far I can't imagine you guys have even got into uni yet :eek:...

    Anyone sensible?

    So you don't think that applying to jobs is "sensible" advice?

    By the way I have already got my engineering degree.

    Sure it is sensible. In terms of advice I meant regarding what type of jobs to target.

    You mentioned you have an engineering degree already, are you employed? If so what job role are you in and any beginners first time employment advice to get on the career ladder?

    Thanks

    I have a job lined up, but there isn't anything else I can add to the advice I have already given I'm afraid. You just have to keep applying until you get something.
