Automotive Job

I have a electrical engineering technology degree from Purdue and am wanting to pursue an automotive job that deals with aftermarket performance upgrades. Anyone know where to start?? Even if I helped design dynos or something, that would be great. I am not sure how to get my foot in the door for this area of work. I am pretty much easily able to work in Chicago without moving.

Thanks!!!

Haha Cary Quad! It's been about 5 years since I've graduated, and I know a lot has changed since then. Cary quad was one of two dorms with A/C (now I think they all have A/C).

I would say contact Purdue and see what they can do for you. Usually they try to help out graduates, but if not maybe an old teacher could help you out. Let me know how it goes because im an ME over at Temple U and will be graduating one of these days.
