I recently got my first job after graduating with a BSME and was upset with my evaluation I received. This is a very small company and I was the first truely entry level person that they hired. I am upset because I was trying so hard, but no matter what, it seemed like I was making the wrong decision and not getting anything right according to the owner of the company, a licensed PE. Technical knowledge, computer proficiency, willingness to learn new ideas all were in the "poor" category". Soon after I was let go because the owner felt he was not going to get a return on his investment. I was kind of heartbroken because I was told I was one of the top students in school, but now I am wondering if I am cut out for this kind of work. I spent a lot of time outside of work studying new engineering things, but it seemed that it was the wrong stuff. Other people in the company did not seem to think so and felt my progress was good. Does anyone have any personal experiences to share?
