What type of engineer are you?

Figure out where you'd like to end up living long term and then work backwards. What companies are in that area? Search their job pages and see what types of engineers they are hiring and what level. Most of our engineer postings are for senior level engineers, but we do have posting for interns occassionally.

Remember that the competition for the jobs in the more desireable locations is tough. If you have internships on your resume you are more likely to get the job then the guy who worked at the coffee shop, kayak shop, etc. Also if the school has a career fair see which companies attend to get a better idea of which companies recruit at that school, do they have office in the area?

Regarding which degree you choose, think about what industries you can work in. Are you limited to one or are there other options. In some industires there are a lot of out of work engineers, but in others there are huge shortages.
What type of engineering firm do you work for and where did you go to school if you don't mine me asking?

If you do come to Seattle- be prepared for sticker shock. It's pricey to live in King County.
