    OT: Looking for Mechanical Engineering Position on the Front Range

    Hi everyone, sorry for the OT....

    I'm graduating with a BS in ME this May, and need a job. I'm 33, and owned a Welding and Auto shop for several years before getting my ME degree. My education has focused on renewable energy and engineering management. I am also into DIY home audio, and have more electrical engineering experience than a typical ME. Please let me know if you're aware of any openings.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Yes, I took NREL's course on wind turbine design at CU... I've talked to Xcel energy, entry level positions will likely place me as a powerplant tech, but I haven't ruled it out...

    Chewie, Thanks, but I'm not interested in working for a defense contractor.

    Out of curiosity, why do you say that?
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    I read an article recently about a possible windmill farm being built north of Alamosa in the valley as well, supposed to be one of the largest(if not the largest) in the country.

    Where abouts? I only saw an opening for a project manager.

    I think a job in that field would be very rewarding.

    My background is in awesomeness. I'm just waiting for the industry to catch up to my qualifications.

    My company and I do mechancial work for Lockheed and Ball and it has to be one of the most cyclical buisness in our state. When the they get awarded a contract it is great, but if a contract goes to a competitor your out of a job. I would not want to live my life always wondering if the government gets approval for their latest weapon. Generally the salaries are very high though in defense industry, so if you can secure a postion and build up some tenure, its not that bad to be, but coming out of school your the first guy on the chopping block and have to start all over.

    The windmill factory is on the outskirts of Johnstown/Windsor.

    This already happened but you could look at the companies that were there and send the resumes.
    http://www.career.colostate.edu/news...eringFair.html
    Click on the companies by major link to find the ones specifically looking for ME's.
    I got a sheet from xcel last week and they did have some positions open in golden and denver.
    Schlumberger does oil and gas and they have an office in Denver. But they are specifically looking for feild engineers. The guy I talked to said they basically try to break you in the first 3 years while you get your General Field Eng cert.

    Vestas Wind

    Vestas is having two career forums in Windsor today

    From the FC paper:

    9AM to Noon
    and
    2PM to 5PM

    Vestas temp office 9351 Eastman Park Drive in Windsor

    Vestas is looking to hire 650 people for their new plant in Windsor.

    Sounds right up your alley. You could live in FC, Loveland, Longmont, maybe even farther south, though I'm not sure why you'd want to.

    Hope this helps!

    Small world, I saw a couple of your post over in the DIY audio board on the TA 10.1 and recognized your screen name. NERD! What are speakers are you using with your TA?

    Good luck with the job hunting.

    Yup, you're actually the 2nd person who noticed... I posted this same thread in the Denver area at AudioCircle too. With all the audio companies around here I though I'd get an offer, but no luck so far. Of course, I'm not an EE...

    I have Omega XRS speakers... the hemp drivers are the best SD speakers I've heard at any price, which includes a set of $4k Feastrex drivers a neighbor has (yes, $4k just for the drivers, and thats the cheapest model they make). The Trends amp is temporary/backup for when I finish my SET amp using a JJ ecc99 driver and TungSol 6550 power tubes... I have collected almost all the parts, now I just need to find time to build it.
