Career advice desperately needed I am a currently a junior in college working in a co-op rotation for a major power company. I work in predictive maintenance doing a lot of infrared scans, vibration testing, motor circuit tests, trend building and evaluation, fan and pump balancing, etc… I enjoy what I do and its pretty safe to say that we won’t end up outsourcing our power, and the industry will continue to grow as more and more power is needed. I am a ME major and plan on taking a good core of Nuclear engineering classes incase there is ever a strong push (that bears fruit) towards nuclear power. I started to get into engineering because I loved math, physics, mechanics and CAD. I guess I feel that I am started out on a path that will take me into the manufacturing industry and I will never get to experience the design side that I think would be really fun. Is it a curse of such a broad major that you cannot get to try everything because you will never really be proficient an anything? It seems that the design jobs are the ones that are being outsourced, and my maintaince co-op will leave me with no design experience so I imaging that I should just continue, I am already 27 (will be 29 when I graduate) so I don’t think that I have a lot of time to try every industry to see what I like best. I know that everyone always says “do what you like the most and don’t let anything stop you”, but if that were feasible we’d all be eating cheesy puffs and drinking beer all day, we would never have made it to the moon. Any advice?
