depends on what you want to do... those MEP and architectural firms maybe easier to find jobs. Try applying to those firms and if they don't hire you ask if you can have an internship positions since you don't have any experience. Also try to take the EIT exam if you haven't. That'll show them that you are serious about this field. Try to learn the basics such as HVAC, building control concepts. Good luck

entry level jay,

There are several ways of attacking the problem.

1. Before you do anything else, update your resume. Make sure that your resume simple, clean, organize because most employers will only spend few second looking over it. Don't write a paragraph on what you acheived but just write a sentense or two on each acheivement. And be a member of some type of assocations, like ASE, ASME, SME, SAE etc... (it look great on your resume) There are numerous of resume example you could look at.

2. You could apply for Federal jobs. (www.usajobs.gov) but I got to warn you that the process is long. Since you don't have any engineering experience, don't discard low paying grade.

3. Every year Fortune magazine list top 500 companies in US. Go on to their website and look the list of 1000 companies not 500. From there, look at each individual company and go on to their website. Each company should have their own career section in which you could apply for open position. (This process will take couple of days to complete but in end your exposing your resume to various companies in which you might have greater chance of getting a job)

4. Numerous of "career experts" express that one of the best way of landing a job is through social network. Social network being as facebook, myspace, linkedin etc... Use that as a tool that could help you to lead in right path.

5. If you are member of some association, they will have their own career section that you could look at and apply for. Sometimes open postions will not be posted anywhere expect on their website.

6. If nothing works then try going back to school for Master degree. It doesn't mean that you have to complete the course but you would have the access to university career center that you could take an advantage of.

GOOD LUCK

Sorry to hear about your friend. Kind of the same boat I'm in. I'm trying to learn HVAC related softwares myself, such as autocad and revit and heating/cooling load calculation programs... I'm not too familiar with carrier university. How about trying to obtain an internship to gain experience, if money is not really a concern. Good luck

HITMANVQ35 in Baltimore, Maryland: Are you taking classes to learn these softwares or are you doing an internship. It is very hard in CA to get even an internship to gain experience, looked other places and no luck.

I too have a degree in Mechanical Engineering, I did not do any internships/Co-op's and I'm currently working on my Masters in Information Systems. I have been job hunting for a year straight now, and I can't stand not having a career start. Which has resulted me to live with my parents. I need to start my own life.

If anyone can please help with any type of advice to aid my problem, I would greatly appreciate it!
