Hello, Great question. Mechanical Engineers coming out of school tend to have a lot more software experience than in the past. There is a lot of overlap in the training and classes you've taken in school. Ensure you're updating your resume to highlight the skills/technologies you've experienced to specifically show why you're qualified for the software side as well. You could look at companies that have both mechanical engineering and software engineering. At Daikin Applied, we see a lot of cross over between the two teams. Best wishes!
