Current Job Title:
Corporate Metrology Engineering
Describe your current job:
I design, process, and implement specialized fixtures for plant floor and lab measurements. I also create presentations for projects that analyze statistical data from tests and graphs and figures made in Minitab for the presentations. I conduct tests to evaluate the current state of the quality of products.
What is the most rewarding and the most challenging part of your job?
The freedom. I am trusted enough to do all my work without much supervision. This is also the most challenging aspect too, because I am forced to learn on my own most of the time.
If you had a campus job or internship, how did they impact your career development?
I started off with an on-campus job. This was good for transitioning into the college lifestyle. But, as I progressed I took on more responsibilities where at the end of my college career I was working full time as an engineer while completing my last semesters. I was able to all of this in four years.
What advice would you offer students to help them decide on a career path?
Try to mix your talents and interests to start. If you follow this you will eventually find interest in what you are doing; it won't be all the time but there are many aspects for each degree.
