1. Be technically sound

It is imperative you become technically sound in your field. Even if you plan to become an engineering manager at a young age, it is still important that you understand the technical aspect of your field to best be able to manage staff and speak with prospective and current clients.

2. Gain experience as a mechanical engineer

As long as you go out there and start developing your Mechanical Engineering skills by doing internships, taking part-time jobs, volunteering, or shadowing professionals, you have the best chance of not only graduating with a great degree but also with practical insight about how to get the job done. 

3. Be a part of the innovation pipelines

Always be open to new ideas, even if they come from sources outside your group. Companies are always looking for engineers who bring creativity and innovation to the job.

4. Never say no to opportunities

As the saying goes “Opportunity never knocks on the door twice!”, don’t resist any opportunity coming your way even if you think it is out of your scope. Grab every chance you get to improve your career.

5. Improve your communication skills

Many engineers prefer to stick to the technical design track, while others branch off into management roles. Whichever field you choose, you need to be comfortable talking to your colleagues, seniors or even the customers. Developing ‘soft skills’ is vital for engineers irrespective of what field they are in.

Mechanical engineering is a field changing so quickly, that you may study things in your final year that was thought almost unfeasible in the first year. If that excites you, give Mech Engineering a serious thought.

What graduate employers look for: Skills that will get you hired!

While achieving good marks in your exams is a good way of starting, academic excellence is not the only thing that graduate employers are looking for in their candidates these days. Even though every profession has different requirements, a certain set of skills are valued by every industry and organization. Here’s a list-

Confidence

Communication skills

Time management

Ability to work under pressure

Leadership qualities

Creative and critical thinking

Problem-solving skills

Emotional intelligence

All of these qualities are soft skills and while it is not necessary that you have all of them, you need to convince your interviewee that you can always learn them.



How to demonstrate your soft skills?
Soft skills are very abstract in nature and an interview could provide a very less of a time for the employer to understand yours. Which is why most of the companies conduct various personality and aptitude tests. Also, direct questions that target a particular soft skill of yours (for example: When was the last time you exhibited great leadership qualities?) could be asked, and a good, nicely framed answer could speak a lot about your personality.

What specific skills is a graduate employer looking for?
While every employer will be looking for a certain mix of hard and soft skills, you can find out what an employer is looking for by studying the job description carefully. Understand their requirements and stress on some skills accordingly. Tailor yourself and your resume based on whether the job requires more of soft skills or hard skills.

How do I work on my skills?
While most of the basics of your hard skills will be taken care of in your graduation, you would probably have to know a little something extra to just get you there. While taking a small course can help, you can also choose to intern or volunteer for a more personalized and first-hand experience.

Soft skills play a very important role, not just in getting you a job but also in determining your success in it. There are various ways in which you can work on them and you definitely should because with the right personality and a positive attitude, your dream job is not far away.
