Project Engineer Advice

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

Project Engineer in Louisville:
"Relax."
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.

Project Engineer in Chicago:
"Engineering? Seemed like a good idea at the time."
Go back to school for finance while you still have time.

Project Engineer in Milwaukee:
"Learn as much as you can."
Learn the product line you are working on and absorb knowledge like a sponge. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

Project Engineer in Burlington:
"Follow Through On Mechanical Engineering/Architecture"
Take business classes and learn to be an entrepreneur - if you want to follow your own design and ways of thinking. Otherwise, just keep plugging away and stay focused on simplicity.
