The Misconceptions . . .
I often hear these two misconceptions from the engineers I mentor and I’d like to dispel them both:
Misconception #1 – Engineers get stuck behind desks all day
Misconception #2 – Engineers only need technical skills
Will I be stuck behind a desk all day?
You might be and some people actually want that type of job.
I just need technical skills to succeed, right?
Wrong. Having only technical skills and avoiding development of your non-technical skills will be a limitation in your career.
