Working as a project engineer in water/wastewater consulting engineering has been an incomparable opportunity. The learning curve has been substantial- steeper than anything I experienced during my time in undergrad. I have had the experience of working with Professional Engineers, going on site visits, conducting construction observation, and receiving in-office training on project management and conduct. I have had numerous opportunities to interface directly with clients, learning the value of professional communication and presentation skills.
I have continued to understand and develop an appreciation for continued self-investment. As a project engineer, I am becoming very familiar with proper site safety dress codes and procedures, which are very different than in-office business casual wear and expectations. I am continuously learning how to be a better team player, balancing the opportunity to learn from veteran engineers, and demonstrate newly acquired knowledge as projects develop overtime.
