Mechanical Engineer in Seattle:
"It's been good, I've always had a job."
Work hard, but realize that whether or not you keep your job has as much to do with office politics as performance. You also need to aquire some practical skills: at a job you aren't going to be doing calcs all day. The hardest part of work is the social interactions, and the practical aspects of the job. It helps if you know how basic machine tools are used too.
