1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hey everybody!

I created Nikes thread about a week ago and love that I have joined this forum!

Everyone is super helpful and cant thank you enough for helping me make sure that nike grows up in the best environment possible for a pup.

Alittle about myself:

I am a senior at iowa state university and will be graduating in may in aerospace engineering.

Currently looking for entry level engineering jobs across the US. I am from chicago so mainly am looking there now for work, but hope eventually to get out to colorado/oregon region. Its so beautiful out there!

Me and my gf co-own Nike and I couldnt do it without her!

Hello everyone and I cant wait to start getting to know everyone!

Welcome!

I'm from Urbana, IL but my folks live up in the suburbs now. How's the aerospace engineering treating you? Both my bachelor's and master's are in aerospace. Have you thought at all about Boeing? Their headquarters is just south of Seattle, which is also an awesome place to live. Good luck on the great job hunt!

I definitely would love to work for Boeing, but my GPA isnt above a 3.0 so they probably wouldnt take me out of college. Im working 20+ hours a week and am a member of the rugby team for the school so all that has taken a hit onto my GPA. Are you working in the aerospace industry right now?

Seattle would be a great place too live too I agree!

Yeah, I graduated with a 2.9 Razz I went to the Naval Academy though, so I had all kinds of extra crap thrown at me, plus we didn't have that nice little 5 year option. Diff Eq's and the second semester of EE (we all had to take 2 semesters) just about did me in.

I'm still active duty flying planes for the Navy. It's a great job, but I'm getting kind of ready for a new chapter in my life. I actually think I'm going to do a complete 180 on the career and go to medical school, but that's based some experiences I've had with the Navy.

GE is another good place to work, and they do a lot of their engine work in Cincinnati is also a very good place to live. I went to grad school at Wright-Patterson AFB, and loved that part of Ohio.

And we're glad that you decided to join us here!

Nice field choice also, are you graduating with a Bachelors degree? Have you considered interning at Boeing to get your foot in the door? Seattle is a wonderful area to live in but also very expensive if you're on an entry level salary or moving from an area where your house is not going to sell for anywhere near what one will cost in Seattle...not to be a downer but it's definitely something to consider when you think about the Seattle area. Lockheed Martin is another good company to consider with your educational background. My hubby is in aerospace also, working with Boeing as a matter of fact, it's a great company.

I've definitely thought about it, but i have acouple interviews for companies in similar fields that would be for full time positions. I would definitely feel more secure getting a full time job than starting out as an intern. Boeing is a great company though and I would love to be an intern or employee there!
