Project Engineering “All-Star”, Machining and Forging #55440

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”  Confucius

As Confucius said, “choose or find a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”  That’s easier said than done.  Many individuals jump at the first job opportunity that comes along.  Those persons are typically looking simply to find work…not to find a job that they will love.

This week’s Project Engineering “All-Star” had a job that he loved but fell victim to the pandemic related downturn at his previous company.  He loved his Mechanical Project Engineering job that entailed doing 3D product development, tooling and fixturing design as well as ongoing manufacturing process improvements and production support.  It was this diverse, challenging and hands-on work that he loved and looked forward to on a day-to-day basis.

He’s now on the market and ready to find and choose that next job that he will love so that he never has to work another day in his engineering career. 

Do you have a job or a broad role in your engineering team that an early career engineer will “love”?

If you do or if you have other staffing needs, please call me at 312.226.4916 or email to schedule a time to discuss how this engineer could fit within your design, manufacturing or project engineering teams.

Best Regards,
