Things are bad out there and I think folks should do everything they can to help out others. How about starting a job and qualifications thread on here? Maybe even pin it to the top of the page? I think one thread for jobs and another for qualifications would make sense.

Let's try to do something to help each other.

Thanks Scott for pinning this. I hope folks will feel comfortabel posting information about thier qualifications. I know you have to be careful on the internet, but a detailed description of your expertise, with a general descrioption of who you worked for in the past would probably be enough to give other people on here enough information that they would contact you by PM, etc, when they hear about an apropriate position.

Two persons I know are looking for work:

My buddy's dad is an ex-Sun employee. I believe he was a Sun server admin who did both Solaris administration work and hardware replacement on Sun hardware. He's looking for work in the greater Boston area (say Woburn, Burlingon, and routes back to NH). Got laid off within 5-10 years of his retirement. :hello:

Second is a Software QA Engineer. I do not know her experience in detail but will get details.

You're still young enough to start. Although I would say select a study that ends in a somewhat technical or professional job. Don't do liberal arts and expect a 6-figure salary. I remember around graduation time folks came to grips when they were being extended salaries for their new jobs out of school. In the end of the day its all what makes you happy and enjoy doing.

Did you ever take one of those personality tests? That may help you narrow your choices.

My company, Electric Boat (Owned by General Dynamics) has several dozen salaried Engineering positions available. Most of the positions are in Groton, CT.

EB Job Search Web Site: http://www.gdeb.com/...job_search.html

Most Engineering jobs are for Mechanical Engineers, typically a bachelors or higher. There are other union tradesworker jobs available, but I can't speak for their availability or competitiveness.


Just for clarification, Electric Boat (EB) is not the same as the Sub Base. We're both in Groton, about 3 miles apart from one another, so many people lump the two together. EB is a private company where we design, build, and repair the subs.

The sub base is a full Navy training facility and home port for commissioned boats. They may or may not be hiring, I don't know, but most of the people that work there are Navy personnel, not civilians.

Looks interesting, but it reminds me of a qualifications question. Since there are several engineers on the forum, and since there's no separate qualifications thread, I'll ask it here:

Many Mechanical Engineering jobs say that "SolidWorks experience is a plus." It's been 6 yrs since I've graduated, and I used several CAD programs in school, but thanks to my company's legacy "Marine Draftsmen's Association" union, engineers are not allowed to do any drawings or design work.

SolidWorks seems like it's the tool most companies use, but I've never touched it. The question is: where can I get "SolidWorks Experience?"

I realize I can probably pay some decent money and take a class on it, but that's not really my ideal way of learning. I'd want some way to be able to continually keep up to date and improve, rather than just take a one time class.

Any ideas?

it becomes tough to stay current with tools.
in your case becuase of unions.
I'd suggest a class is the easiest.
if you have access to a seat, solidworks has a great on-line tutorial.

it's is ironic that solidworks has student copies for $89 but you have to be a full time student to qualify.
so chumps like you and me can't get/buy 1 year evaluation copies to learn on becuase we're already engineers.

My high school son bought a copy of mathworks.
I'm sure he has found it to be very valuable. :D

back to topic, find a way to get tools on your machine.
Few places maintain the legacy shop union rules and engineers are expected to do their own drawings.

I've been trying to do that... I have to see if I can get some connections back to college students. Unfortunately, my usual shady routes for media are coming up empty... but I'll keep trying.

I wasn't sure if there was anything obvious I hadn't seen out there. While no mechanical engineer can keep up on all aspects when it comes to tools of the trade, the lack of software design/modeling work for engineers here is a glaring hole when it comes to one of the fundamental skills.

Thanks for the help. :thumbup:
