My apologies if the question is in the wrong forum or section. Anyway, I'm a mechanical engineer with 2 years of work experience and have just recently moved to a new company. And just like in my previous job, fatigue seems to be kicking in. The job is basically a mountain of documentation, people management and copying the old design with very little tweaks as specified by superior. There's very very little creative thinking that's required based on engineering knowledge and skill and because of that, I couldn't get excited about what I do. And more importantly, how am I gonna survive by doing the same thing over and over again for years to come? Recently I was watching this show on TV about a bakery and how the bakers come to work everyday thinking about how to make a new cake design to suit a specific customer's need or just to make a profit. That probably requires a hell of a lot more brain compared to what I'm doing, despite my expensive and 4 years of tertiary education. It's hard not to feel jealous. Can someone give me a list of jobs (preferably those related to STEM) that require a high level creative thinking? Thank you.
