I graduated from university with a degree in mechanical and thermal engineering last year. Since then, I've struggled to find a job in that field in the UK.
It's been almost a year of doing absolutely nothing and I feel like I went to uni for nothing. I have found a German company now and I'm thinking of applying for a job there, since they are looking for trainees. Since it's a trainee position I don't think it will pay a lot and I'm scared of moving so far away from home. On the other hand, it could be a really great job opportunity and it would look great on my resume.
What would you do? I can't find a job here at all :/

Moving to Germany could be very exciting for you!
There's a lot of things you need to think about though: Are you able to find out the salary of this position? And if you do find out and notice it is lower than what you are expecting, is there a chance to progress in the company and get promoted? Will their be a language barrier?
Also, have you had a look on the Milkround website? They have a whole section dedication for Engineering roles:

It's not that far, especially if a low-cost airline flies to nearby. I assume that you went away to university, so it's only a step-up from that IMO. At some point, it's wise (IMO) to go out on your own. Life is about experiences, and this would be a big one. Good luck!
