Any laid off electrical engineers out there?
I am an electrical engineer major in Automation control (Programmable Logical Controlers) and I was laid off since February 2009. I am feeling desperate because I feel very consumed with my survival jobs to apy my bills and also I have been in many interviews without success. I am feeling alone facing my pain and would love to connect with other people at the same boat as me. I am looking fro an internship or any activity I can do to stay close to my field. Your answers are very welcome!
