Controls Engineering “All-Star” Candidate, Process Controls #61347
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” Albert Einstein
I can relate to this quote as anytime I try something new, I seem to learn by making a lot of mistakes. Fortunately or unfortunately for that matter, I have been spending more time doing home improvement projects since the start of the pandemic which has provided me with ample opportunities to try new things and as a result, learn by making a lot of mistakes.
I recently connected with an early career controls engineering “All-Star” who is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, my alma mater. He has learned a lot about controls and process engineering in a short period of time in his last role. He didn’t necessarily learn by making mistakes but by being put into client facing engineering situations throughout the globe where he had to learn new things quickly to complete a client job or project in a timely and cost effective manner. After completing a controls and process engineering rotation in house, he was transferred to a field engineering role where he had to help clients commission and start up new custom process systems. This gave him the opportunity to quickly learn how to troubleshoot and update PLC controls, panels and wiring to ensure that the system met client specifications.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, this controls engineering “All-Star” is now on the market and looking for that next engineering career opportunity where he can “continue learning“ in a controls and automation systems engineering focused role. His goal isn’t to learn by making mistakes but to expand his technical expertise by building on a strong educational foundation and initial work experience with a leading global company.Please give me a call at 312.226.4916 or email me to discuss this controls engineering “All-Star” and how he can impact your organization and team by being challenged to learn, not necessarily by making mistakes but by trying and doing new things on an ongoing basis.
