so im graduating this quarter from ucla civil engineering program with a 2.8 gpa, i planned on getting a job out of college but after all the careers fairs, career center job applications and online job applications, i didn't get any interviews at all. I have indicated willing to relocate and travel so i wasn't picky at all.
So now im graduating this quarter, what should i do next? current plan for me is to keep applying to every opportunity but is there anything else i can do?
I am scheduled to take the FE/EIT exam in april, would that be helpful in terms of getting a job? Should i try to get an unpaid research position to boost my resume?
I have struggled in college and ended up with a low gpa, i couldn't find any internship opportunities for engineering the past few summers so i decided to do summer school so i can graduate early but now I am really lost on what my next step should be.
I have also thought about going into teaching while i wait for an engineering job, would that be a good route and if anyone have any information on how to pursue that would be greatly appreciated!
