My husband is looking for an engineering job?
he has a 2:2 BEng in Mechanical Design and Technology from 2004 and since then spent 1 year working on an offshore oil rig. Due to the family business he has had to work in it for the past couple of years. He is now looking for an engineering job but is finding it hard to find a company to give him the opportunity. Any advice?

I know many people who are engineers that can't find a job due to redundancy. The truth is that manufacturing has had it's day as much steel production is now contracted out to China and much of the European nations.
