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.
