Field Engineer Advice

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

Field Engineer in Gastonia:
`"$I have worked here before and loved the work and people."`
If you have Cad training you will also need outside Plant Experience and that will be slow to accumulate in this job.

Field Engineer in Knoxville:
`"$Get A Degree In Your Field."`
I came through a trades apprenticeship. While that has been VERY useful, I think a degree in some construction field would've been more helpful if it was combined with the field experience.

Field Engineer in Spokane:
`"$Am I Paid What I Am Worth?"`
Ask questions until you are sure you understand. Be ready to take on anything. Look at problems as opportunity's to grow, adapt and overcome.
