Automotive Engineers/Electricians

I work for a company based in Adelaide and Albury Wodonga that designs and produces land miltiary vehicles. We are constantly on the look out for automotive engineers (electrical or mechanical) and auto electricians but we have had little to no success in the recent past. Does anyone know why this is the case? or do they know automotive engineers/electricians who may be interested or know of others? any help or advice would be appreciated.

This surprises me. I'm a Mechanical Engineering major, and talk to a lot of Mech. Engineers and Automotive Engineers. The general consensus is that in the automotive industry here in America there are too many applicants for too few jobs. Even going to a good school with an excellent GPA will only give you a chance at working as an Automotive Engineer. Guess it's not the same over there.

If you're willing to pay an intern well enough to justify him moving all the way to Adelaide I'd gladly help.

tell me about it .... i'm starting to languish on big city (as big as brissie is) engineer wages, but i'm not sure i could handle wasting the "prime" of my life in a mine just for the sake of money. It's only to pay the bills really, isn't it?

The unfortunate part of being in your twenties, is that you forget that your late teens were the prime of you life and refuse to acknowledge that your future years will actually be the prime of your life.
