What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Aeronautical Engineer in Cornwall:
I never knew whilst growing up what I wanted to do, I jumped from job to job, through many industries until I found something I was at home with. Growing up I was always amazed by things that fly and had a thing for taking toys a parts and trying to rebuild them. It wasn't until I was 18 when the two things come together and I realised that helicopters and planes can be taken apart and rebuilt by normal people. I applied to join the military and have been in the aeronautical industry now for 8 years fixing and rebuilding their big "toys" on a daily basis. Where I grew up, I was always taught that ends need to be met and that no job is beneath anyone, as I've grown up, those very words have made me graft hard and as I grow in my career, those words have become my backbone but I am now realising that no job is out of reach.
