Hi Shubham,

Firstly congratulations you are a Graduate and secondly, you have chosen a field, which fits in with every industry that one can think of.

Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. To put it simply, mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves

Mechanical engineers play a central role in industries like:

  • Automobiles: (from the car chassis to its every subsystem-engine, transmission, sensors)
  • Aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft)
  • Biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries)
  • Computers and electronics (disk drives, printers, cooling systems, semiconductor tools)
  • Micro electronical systems, or MEMS (sensors, actuators, micropower generation);
  • Energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells)
  • Environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors)
  • Manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, microfabrication).

Listed above is the industry, you can work with. From the above you can see that you fit in with all industry type.

But important here is the role you would be interested in, in the industry.

The roles are described as under:

  • Product Design -- developing products ranging from biomedical devices to gasoline-powered engines. A mechanical engineer designs anything that uses mechanical motion.
  • Research and Development -- discovering new solutions to human needs or improving older methods.
  • Manufacturing -- developing the machines that process materials into products. Designing and building machines and systems of machines that improve operating efficiency is of prime importance.
  • Systems management -- overseeing operations of a large system, such as a power plant, as well as supervising the people who work there.
  • Energy -- planning how energy is generated, stored, and moved. Industries that produce and deliver electrical power, such as natural gas, oil and alternative energy, employ mechanical engineers to develop more fuel-efficient cars, motors, and appliances.

Once you decide the role you wish to play, choosing an industry becomes easier.

As far as job search is considered, you do not have to think much, since any industry is open for you.
So firstly make an eye catching Resume, highlighting your strengths or your contribution during internships or projects undertaken.
Next step would be to approach companies by visiting their websites and posting your Resume there or via e-mails.
Also post your resume on various job portals like Naukri, monster, shine etc.
Best is if you have a friend or relative working in the industry you wish to join, ask them to refer you.

Hoe this helps.

Wish you good luck...........
