📼Clarify objectives to become a successful engineer. Tip #1: Set personal development goals.
You need to define where you think you will be in the medium and long term of your career. Then define some goals. Set the key objective of the goal, determine what result you want to get, and then set a time frame. Remember: Goals are not set in stone. You can look at different ways that you can do different things and redefine your goals as you move along in your career.
📼 Become a successful engineer by connecting! Tip #2: Build your network. Socialize at any opportunity that you have, and use this to make new contacts that might be useful later. If you join Autodesk, you’ll be encouraged to socialize with other team members. On this line, Autodesk runs great big global conferences that give you a chance to meet new people who have advanced their careers in different ways. You can learn a lot from them!
Get Inspired to Become a Successful Engineer - Tip #3: Identify Role Models and Mentors
Autodesk encourages its team members to find mentors. That’s why they have a mentor and mentee program. This is where you can volunteer and sign up. You input information based on your values, your likes, and your dislikes, and are matched to your mentors. You can then choose which one you would like and approach them to see if they will be your mentor. You can formalize this relationship and set up meetings, or you can just use it as a source to have a friendly chat once in a while. Don’t miss the opportunity to get inspired!
