I've been on my first job for almost 3 years, I work as a Mechanical Design Engineer at a small automation company, and work has been slow for over a year, therefore, I'm not gaining experience anymore, plus my salary is less than half of what my old classmates make in "easier" positions. I've searched for new positions but I don't seem to be qualified for any of them so I hesitate to send my resume. Although I'm a loyal employee and willing to learn, I'm no longer recently graduated. I had only one interview but was rejected. How can I stand out? Do I have to fake it 'til I make it or am I doomed?
