You may be wondering what your options are as far as your aerospace engineer career goes. If you're schedule or life plan relies heavily on the option of having a temporary aerospace engineer job, you may want to reconsider. Temporary job opportunities are both more difficult to find and often prove less beneficial for someone in this field. The exceptions to this rule are for new college graduates looking for their first aerospace engineer job or for someone looking to expand their specialty, or change it altogether.
Internships are also a great way to begin your career as a new graduate, or to move peripherally within your field. It may also be a great option for someone looking to relocate or transition to a different aerospace engineer job. For the best possible results and momentum in your aerospace engineer career, however, it is a good idea to find a permanent position within your specialty. Until you reach that point, however, a temporary job may be for you. Just remember that they serve you much better in the short term than in the long term. Consider your goals for each, and decide accordingly.
