Hey there! I am in an interesting predicament, after graduating and 8 months of no employment I finally have a job as a drafter for electrical systems that my brother designs. While Its great finally having a job I feel that I did not get enough out of the bfa in “designed objects” from SAIC, as it did not prepare me for a lot of the jobs that I would like. I tend to enjoy a lot more of the actual making of things, and generating models in solidworks over the drawing of concepts.
Now I am considering going back to school for either a second bachelors in design or mechanical engineering or a Masters in the same field but I am unsure of which option would be a better use of my time. I have heard while masters are great, they can end up closing doors. However I don’t know how employers would feel about having two separate bachelors.
Has anyone here or does anyone know of someone who has gone down a similar path? Are there any schools that I should be looking at or resources I could read?
Thanks for your help,
