3-STEP PROCEDURE to get mechanical engineering jobs for freshers and early professionals.

This article outlines a simple 3-STEP PROCEDURE to get mechanical engineering jobs for freshers and early professionals.

It has always been challenging for mechanical engineering freshers to get their first job in the core mechanical engineering domain. In addition to a lack of skills and experience, young mechanical engineers have no access to industry-experienced mentors who can provide practical guidance and awareness of industry expectations.

If you are a mechanical engineer, you might already know that just having an educational qualification (a degree or a diploma) is insufficient to get a job. In addition, you might have already undergone some skill-oriented CAD training in some training centers. However, this book is for you if you find it tough to find a job despite the skill-oriented training.

This book aims to provide awareness of "industry expectations" and a step-by-step approach to "how mechanical engineers can get Jobs."

To get jobs, mechanical engineers should follow a simple 3-step process depicted in the flow chart.


STEP 1: 3-Step Procedure To Acquire Skills & Experience - To get Mechanical Engineering Jobs

Every job requires specific skills and experience. For example,

  • Motorbike Service and Repair: You would certainly take your motorbike to a technician who knows how to inspect and repair a vehicle and has substantial experience.
  • Car driver: You would like to hire a driver who knows how to drive and has experience operating the vehicle in different road and traffic conditions.

Similarly, a mechanical engineer should also have specific skills and experience essential for performing a job. As mechanical engineering is a vast field, it takes some research to identify the available job roles, the skills, and the experience required for performing these roles. Therefore, in chapter-2 of this book, different job roles available for mechanical engineers in the industry are outlined.

To acquire skills and experience, mechanical engineers should follow a simple 3-step process depicted in the flow chart below.

Step-2: 3-Step Procedure to PREPARE A Winning Resume - To get Mechanical Engineering Jobs

The purpose of a resume is to get a job interview. Therefore, the resume should showcase the skills and experience relevant to the job role. To showcase the relevant skills and resume, you need to customize the resume for each job description. Unfortunately, mechanical engineers seldom customize their resumes to highlight/showcase their relevant skills and experience. Instead, they keep forwarding the same resume for each opportunity.

To customize a resume for the job description, mechanical engineers should follow a simple 3-step process depicted in the flow chart below.

Step-3: 3-Step Procedure for Interview Success - To get Mechanical Engineering Jobs

An interview is a formal discussion organized by an employer to determine the candidate's suitability for a job role. The employer shall ask many technical and general questions to ensure the candidate will perform the job role satisfactorily. Note, if a mechanical engineer has received an interview call, they are just one step away from getting a job, but preparation is the key to succeeding in the interview.

To prepare for the job interview, mechanical engineers should follow a simple 3-step process depicted in the flow chart below
