Are you interested in an entry-level job in engineering? If you answered yes to that question, the first thing you need to know is that no two jobs in engineering are exactly the same. There are many different types of engineers and many different subsets within each type, which makes for endless opportunities. Maybe, for example, you’d like to become an aerospace engineer, meaning an engineer who works with moving objects. Obviously, that job description is quite broad and the jobs available are even broader. You could go to work for NASA creating and testing spacecrafts and satellites, or you could work for a major airline in designing and testing aircraft. You could even end up making sporting equipment or toys!
Outside of the aerospace category, there are even more engineering entry-level jobs. For instance, you could look into becoming a petroleum engineer? Petroleum engineers are interested in finding natural sources of oil and gas and in making the use of these natural resources easier and more efficient in order to reduce waste and increase convenience. If you want to create an oil tank or spend your time on the hunt for underground oil, this is the field for you!
The positions described here barely scratch the surface of the many engineering jobs available. You could become an agricultural engineer, a mechanical engineer, a chemical engineer, an electrical engineer, a systems engineer, or a computer hardware or software engineer, to name a few. With so many choices available, it’s a smart idea to have at least a rough idea of the engineering field that most interests you before you start applying for positions.
