It seems like you're struggling to find entry-level jobs in the space industry after completing your aerospace engineering degree. Don't worry, you can still improve your chances. Consider gaining certifications like STK level 1 and 2, and learning SQL and Python to enhance your skills. Applying for satellite operations engineer positions is a good start. Keep an eye out for other attainable opportunities too. Grad school may be an option in the future, but for now, focus on building your experience and skills.
I changed jobs in 2008 to get back into launch site ops but been happy. So happy in that this Jan will be making a transition to retiree.
I looked for rats nest situations that looked like the hell sinful engineers went to, and dove in with nobody telling me to. I hold several PITA records, worked a lot of unpaid overtime and went through many, many positions, but eventually got turned out to do what I wanted and paid to match what I did. Point being, get in where you can and earn your way. Certifications might fool HR, but performance is what people who matter will notice. Look at Jim. There's no job description that matches what he knows. Knowing nothing about his history, I'd bet my last dime he got where he is by figuring out how things work and delivering without whining about stuff not being his job. *Late night Cambodian bar post*
