I graduated Instrumentation in May, have been job hunting since March 20. I’m wondering just how long it takes to get aJob? I know I’ll have to start at the bottom and work my way up and that I probably won’t get an actual instrumentation job for a couple of years but I’m okay with that. Does anyone hire new grads? I’ve put in close to 100 applications. After next week I’ll probably look into other job options in some other field Any info appreciated TIS
