I think many will share my idea, money. I am a systems engineer and more than money is the number of job offers with different benefits, they practically rain down on me, I have a lot to choose from.

My father was a petroleum engineer, my brother, too, and since I was not different, I have to say that I love what I do. It is like a family sharing every time we sit down to talk about different things.

My grandfather founded a factory of hydraulic pumps, we are Italian, and basically, we have the ability to create in our blood, but I wanted to go further and study mechanical engineering, now I am the president of the company, and in 5 years we have grown almost twice as much. that we had grown in 20 years.

I always loved programming, and when I discovered that there was the option of being a specialist in this area I decided to face the fight, I'm still studying to qualify as a programming engineer, but every day I learn more and love my career more.

In my family everyone is an electrician by trade, none of them have a degree, but my father always asked me to become an engineer, I will always thank him, I love what I do.

I wanted to be able to solve problems and create things that would make people's lives easier. Engineering is a field that allows you to do just that. You can solve problems, create things, and make a real impact on the world.

When I was younger, I always loved making things. I would take things apart to see how they worked and then try to put them back together. I think this is where my interest in engineering started.

It's in my blood

My husbands brother got married this summer. It was a destination wedding and we forked over a lot to be there. We also gave them 1k in cash as a gift of which I paid half. The bride didn’t bother to spend two mins with me at the wedding (husbands bro did),neither sent a thank you text for coming or for the gift. My husband said to just let it go but I’m salty about it. To me, it’s a lack of basic courtesy. I just need to let it go because what can I really do about it but it’s eating away at me

Hi everybody! 😊
I've been working as a Junior Analog Design Engineer for a year and half.
I received a proposal for a Senior Analog Designer role from Bosch in the same city where I am currently working.
Should I wait and build up a few more years of experience before accepting a Senior role or should I jump in and work to fill the gap?
Next year, there will be an important deadline for the project I'm working on and my resignation could be critical for the team, how would you deal with it?
