The First Days Of The Rest Of Your Life 

The thought of entering the real world after graduation is an exciting but scary one for most engineers. "I don't know what to expect", "what if I make a mistake?", "what if I don't measure up?"

Up until now almost all of your engineering challenges have been in the form of exams but exams are predictable and relatively easy to prepare for. You get the course notes, you learn them, rewrite them on the exam paper then forget them.

The first few days, weeks and months in a new job are a very different story. It is more like being given the exam on day one but without any notes.

In particular, a lot of new engineers find making engineering decisions very stressful at the start. In industry there are lots of problems but few 'correct' solutions like you get in an exam. There are only 'best' solutions and without experience it is very hard to know how close you are to them.

Now don't let that scare you, just remember, we have all come through it and you know what . . . a lot of the experiences and things you need to learn are common across the engineering industry.

In this webinar we will look at 3 of the most important things you should do, to not only survive your first engineering job but to excel, come out on top and impress your managers.

Applying these 3 golden nuggets will give you the edge over other graduate and junior engineers and will earn you the confidence and respect of the team.
