First post in the forums. Looking forward to some great conversations. I took my ultimate exam for an A.A.S. in Instrumentation Technology, Electronics, and Bio-medical Equipment Repair Technology. I have an internship at a hospital SUPPOSEDLY scheduled to start in a month. I have plans to pursue a B.S. in Mechatronics Engineering in the near future. In the mean time between now and being hired, what are some things I can do to stay relevant, buff up my credentials, and do some realistic networking? I've joined several related professional organizations and am doing my best to be active while on a budget. All the certifications I have found require several years of experience, so I will have to wait on those. Any suggestions/advice from those that have been there and done that? Thanks for your time!
