Hey Everyone, I'm a Mechanical Engineer that has not worked in the Engineering field since being in Canada. My degree is from a fully accredited institution but I have sent numerous amounts of applications and no company wants to take the chance. Since I've been here I work my way up in the few industries that I've worked in. I just need a opportunity to apply my knowledge and experience with the Mechanical Engineering field.

Hmm sorry to hear this OP! You might want to get your resume looked at again, as it might not be showing you in the best light for this type of role? Also worth posting on the job referral bowl in case something comes up there1

I agree with the comment above. Sometimes having your resume professionally optimized can help so sooooo much in getting your foot in the door somewhere.

How long have you been out of the engineering industry? You mentioned that you've been in a few industries since moving. Maybe your resume makes it look like you hop jobs/industries too often?

I have a few questions for people in consulting roles (both external/internal).

My partner is in corporate banking, but he wants to switch to a consulting/strategy-based role. I noticed people with those jobs typically have an MBA, and also majority of the job ads in similar roles has MBA as either a requirement or preferred qualification. So:

1) does MBA actually improve someone's chance in getting those roles?
2) are there any good Canadian MBA programs you'd recommend?

Thank you all!
