Hi, I need to interview a mechanical engineer for a school career project, and I was wondering if a mechanical engineer would be kind enough to answer some questions. I am really interested in studying to be one. I'm currently a junior in high school. Here are some questions, and I was wondering if you couls answer them. What is your job title and where do you work? Do you know an average starting salary? How long have you been in the engineering field? How many hours do you work daily? Do you have to work weekends and/or holidays? Is it hard to balance your work life with your personal life? Did you find going through college difficult? Do you have any tips on how to adjust with the classes? Was it hard to find a job once out of college? What advice would you give a student planning on entering this career? Is there a lot of travel involved? Do you need to be able to use a computer quickly?
