How long does off-cycle PE recruiting take, from reaching out to head hunters to starting the job?

My goal is to start work summer / fall 2023. Headhunters are already reaching out, but I'm not quite ready yet. Is there any harm in waiting until January before replying / reaching out to head hunters?

How do I get a job as a Mechanical Engineer if I dont have experience?

I couldn’t get an internship while in school. I have a BS in ME and projects from school under my belt. I’ve also passed the FE exam. I’ve been mostly just doing CAD for a company for the last year by creating minimally dimensioned drawings and moving parts around in assemblies. I want to evolve in my career and be doing more. I worked so hard to earn my degree and I feel like I’m not even using it. But who will hire me?
