Client interaction is not something complicated or difficult. It is simply people talking with people who share common work related interest and many times turns into a relationship beyond work. Same idea with Public speaking. People talking to people.

Project Engineer in St. Louis:
"Work is not like school."
Do not expect work to be based on merit. It is often more based on people's perception of you. Manage your reputation from day one. Don't expect people to be kind or understanding. Be on alert for bias, especially if you're from an under-represented group. ABOVE ALL, NEGOTIATE YOUR STARTING SALARY. YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN YOU THINK. DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.

"Follow Through On Mechanical Engineering/Architecture"

"Get A Job In The Field."
While in college, get a job in the field of construction.

Be engaged, be willing to learn, and try to absorb everything from the hard working people around you.
