Great question my friend!
There are many opportunities for you as engineering is a very sought out skill-set in the world of manufacturing. I would encourage you to look at automotive suppliers, aerospace, electronic component manufacturers, and even oil. I am obviously partial to the automotive industry but I can tell you there are many Tier 1 (directly service an automobile maker) and Tier 2 (service a supplier that directly services an automobile maker) companies that are looking for amazing talent, that may not have a presence at your local career fair.
Check out Tenneco.com/careers - and see if anything interests you there.
Indeed also posts jobs for EngineerJobs.com so employers may be able to find you there.
Lastly, networking is everything. Conduct a search of all Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers in the area you want to work and look these recruiters up on LinkedIn. I can promise you we are looking for you, you just might not be where we are looking.
