Mechanical Engineer Advice

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

Mechanical Engineer in Hampton:
"Find your interest and define your path."
I work for a small company. The proverbial ball is never definitively handed to you, you need to find it and develop the game around it. Make sure that whatever "game" you develop will balance your interests, hone your skills, provide a surmountable challenge, and steer you in the career direction you want.

Mechanical Engineer in Las Vegas:
"Focus on capabilities and work for good people."
Even when facing limited opportunities, take the risk of lower wages for the opportunity to work for people who will help you learn.

Mechanical Engineer in State College:
"Consider all your options."
Go to a small, reputable school. Get involved in school activities. Get hands on experience. Don't become a (mechanical) engineer for: money; if you're an introvert; if you're afraid to get your hands dirty; if you don't enjoy continual learning.

Mechanical Engineer in Danbury:
"Take care of yourself...thats what any company would do."
Working for a successful, fulfilling, and exciting organization is something most engineers strive to become apart of. Loyalty to your organization is a noble trait for any employee, however when ever the thought begins to creep into your mind that this is not the company for you, it's best to move on and find a new opportunity. Always stay ethical, work to the best of your abilities, and challenge yourself, but never let anyone take advantage of you. Only one life to accomplish your goals.

Mechanical Engineer in Arvada:
Stick with your knowledge and know how to support your work with fact. Be truthful and honest even if the results are not in favor of your theory.
