What are some unique, not often thought-of jobs/industries an engineer could pursue if they don’t want to work in a “traditional” engineer environment (e.g. aerospace, automotive, o&g, etc.)?
I’m graduating next year (mechanical engineering) and am starting to get in the mindset of looking for full-time jobs. I’ve had 2 internships in the aerospace industry and 1 in automotive, but I want to explore some non-traditional industries that some people may not think of that need engineers. Rather than the usual MEjobs the pop into mind, the big-name aerospace companies, automotive manufacturers, oil & gas companies, etc., do you know of any unorthodox companies or industries that hire mechanical engineers (or engineers in general)? Some examples I’ve come across:
Toy company – I have a friend who interned at Nerf and that seems like it would be a cool job
Finance – fuck all the formulas you learned in school, go sell your soul and make some good money
Working for a brewery/on bar automation
Any to add?
