Pure class envy...
I went back to school to get an engineering job only to face this coming out. Spent my entire life working any job that paid, even pizza delivery just to get the God damned degree.
This "Fee" person, I'm willing to take out behind the woodshed so we can talk about his "feelings".

I consider myself fortunate. After aimlessly drifting through my early 20's and accomplishing nothing, it took the death of a friend to wake me up to two unshakable facts of life: 1)I was NOT immortal and 2) The world was not going to wait for me to make up my mind about what to do with my life. At that point I went to college, got a degree in electronics and was lucky enough to graduate in mid 1997, when the tech boom was really cranking. I managed to work my way up to an engineering position and somehow managed to survive the tech-wreck with my job intact.
The tech wreck has really changed the landscape. Where I work we have engineers doing accounting projects and accountants working on engineering teams. You might want to consider going for a position at a company where you may not have an engineering job description, but in another part of the operation where an engineering point of view might be useful to their operation. Mid sized businesses may be your best bet, since they are not big enough to move their operations to China or India.
I am convinced of one thing, though...within the next 2 to 5 years there is going to be a massive re-ordering of the economy and society, likely to be brought on by a currency crisis in the US dollar. Anyone who has money in the nasdaq right now asking to be mugged.
