Electrical Designer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Electrical Designer in Amarillo:
"Technology Advancement."
When I started my drafting career at college, I had no idea the type of change that was going to happen within 10 years. One word of advice would be to take on the opportunity to learn about any technology change or enhancement that will make your job or your company's job(s) better. You can not sit idle, as someone else will learn it and get the edge.
