Jobs these daysMoreThis book informs current engineering students about the various job categories available to them after graduation. There is a disconnect between what students learn in universities and what each job profile expects them to do.
Jobs these days require new hires to learn at a fast pace and cover the learning curve in really short times. I aim to bridge that gap with the help of a few fellow engineers who are doing really interesting work. I have compiled the engineering journeys of accomplished engineers who work in fields including big data, internet of things, computer security, LASERs, and entrepreneurship.The journeys are compiled in an interview format.
In my opinion, knowing what each person did at different stages in their career - as a student and as a professional, is very important. An interview format gives them the space and freedom to share their exact thoughts. What Ive tried to do is broadly cover the following points for each interview:1.
What has been your engineering journey?2. What kind of work are you doing?3. How did you get into this field?4. As a student, what should I be learning in order to work in this field?5. What are the future job prospects in this field?At the end of the book, theres a resources page that will help you jot down the key points applicable to each field.I encourage students to bookmark profiles that appealed to them and dig a bit deeper into those.
Its also important to know what you dont like. Do note those as well. For more resources or any questions, you can find my details over at www.EngineerTheDots.com
