Current Position: Project Manager
Hire Date: June 8, 2015, job shadowed spring of 2015
Hired as an intern? Yes, and I job shadowed before that
Other titles held: Intern, Graduate Engineer, Licensed Engineer/Project Engineer
I did a job shadow, enjoyed the experience, and was offered an internship before I entered college in the field I was going to study. It offered me a really early look at the field and confirmed my choice of major very early on for me.
I was extremely excited when offered the interning position, it was right near when I turned 18 and I was able to move on from my first job at McDonalds.
My career goals were to pass my FE, PE and continue to move up position wise in the company and continue to gain knowledge and experience. My career goals included becoming a manager. My career goals now include gaining more management skills/experience & helping develop new graduates.
Get an internship as soon as you can! Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and step outside your comfort zone.
I have a few. Passing my PE, gaining my license, becoming a Project Manager.
