Getting into your Dream Mechanical Company 

Getting into your dream mechanical company is less difficult than choosing it. If you have the skills and experience to work in that particular company then it’s like a walk in a park. However, if we consider the present scenario where:-

  • The supply of engineers is much higher than the demand.
  • And poor Indian education system which is continuously producing unskilled engineers.

This is the reason behind most of the Research & Development company looking for 6 to 10 years experienced engineers or the engineers with a master degree. Thus, it can be said that getting into a dream mechanical company for fresher might be a time-consuming job. Although, by following the below procedure this time can be reduced by more than 50%.

How to choose your Dream Mechanical Company?

We have Automobile Sector, Machinery Sector, Household Sector, Space Sector, Naval Sector & General Electronic Sector under the mechanical domain and all of them comprises two different departments.

1. One of the Department is Research and Development department.
2. The other is Production i.e. Manufacturing department.

Based on these two departments, we have two different types of Mechanical Companies. They are: –

  1. Visible Company: The company that does the research and development work.
  2. Hidden Company: The company that does the manufacturing work.

For Example: –

VISIBLE COMPANYHIDDEN COMPANY

ABB, TMEIC, Schindler, ABM EnergoAdobe Metals Pvt Ltd.

Once chosen, the rest job becomes easy. Below is the procedure to get into your dream mechanical company.

      1. One of our student got placed today. The point to be noted is 10 days before he wasn’t even aware of the subject ‘DM’ & the lesson learned is ‘Apply for the job that suits you & the job will be yours’.

    1. We have just started working on CIVIL courses. Once we have the enough knowledge about the subject, we will start blogging about civil too.
