Creating a resume

There are many resources online for resume writing. Make sure it is specific to engineering. You many want to write different resumes for different companies, customizing to the specific opening.

Searching for job openings

The best way to get a job is to have a connection in a department of a company. Ask your friends to ask their bosses if there are any openings in their department.

Go to career fairs. You will get to have actual conversations with people that have some say in hiring or at least getting an interview.

If you are coming out of school, go to career services. Hopefully your engineering department will have its own program. Join the email list for openings. Also get on the department's email list. They may list jobs there as well.

On the main page of almost every company's website is a link for job openings. This is not the best way to get a job, but it's a start. Don't expect a response from the companies, It may take a very long time.
