The first step on your job search is to build a career portfolio. Write a bio page about your education and strengths. Add your resume. Prepare a page about your coursework, internships, hobbies, volunteer work, and any other details that make you stand out. Include three or four testimonials from professors, employers, or clients. Then add a few pages about your technical skills. Share projects you worked on, designs you developed in school, etc.
Second, do your research. If you have interest in a particular company, look them up. Know what they make and sell and what their company goals are. Prepare intelligent questions to ask about the future of the company if they invite you for an interview.
Third, network with friends, teachers, and anyone who can help you get your foot in the door. Getting that first job is frequently about who you know. Let everyone know you want an engineering job and see who steps forward to help.
