I would advise somebody considering this job to talk to people who are engineers already. They should try to talk to people working in different areas of engineering as even when people do the same degree they can have very different day to day jobs, from full time office based jobs to full time site based jobs.

Also it is important to remember that even if you complete an engineering degree you are not limited to a purely technical career as there are plenty of other areas you can get involved in like project management or finance.

I believe that I am an extremely reliable person. As a result when someone asks me to do something they know it will be done to the best of my ability.

 

I think this is important for any job as it helps build a rapport with colleagues who could possibly influence any future career moves.

 

I have excellent people skills which is an essential part of my current role. I deal with internal customers, colleagues and candidates on a daily basis. It is important that I can communicate with people on all levels and that they feel comfortable dealing with me in return.
