temp job/internships


Hiya fellas,
I have M.Sc degree in Aerospace Materials n i am trying to get hold of an engineering position as a graduate trainee or as an intern…is it really that hard here?? I haven’t been able to get hold of any inteviews so far. I am trying so hard to get my feet wet in any professional body prior to going for my ph.d in energy research around june 2011 to Australia. Can any mate guide me out of this situation please ??? misery and stray cats in front of my house are driving me crazy =/
