Hi, I'm an electrical engineer and I work in a robotic development department, in our case our products use electrical impulses simulating the human brain to generate movement in the robots. So one position could be that, peripheral motion analyst.

I believe that electrical engineering and robotics are closely related, just like electronics. I don't have a direct connection with robotics, but I have done related research to develop projects and I know that the disciplines need each other.

Electrical engineering is a PART of the robotics fields, but more than likely you'll need additional specialization since it's a multidisciplinary field that also includes mechanical engineering and computer science knowledge. You may be able to contribute in a project but it's unlikely you could lead one on your own

Your skillset as an electrical engineer would likely be best suited for working on electronics, programming, and controls

Moms, please help ! Our toddler is 2.5 and we are having a lot of issues with him sitting in one place and eating food. He takes 4 - 5 bites and goes running to play with something. He is picky but atleast he was eating some vegetables, fruits - and now he is fussy even with them. He hates high chair so we can't constrain him. How did you tackle toddler eating struggles? Context - we did potty training a week back and not sure whether that has impacted eating behavior. Nothing else has changed.

Hello, everyone!

I have an interview for a relatively new law firm early next week. However, upon doing more research about them, I noticed that their website has only a black-and-white website about only what the law firm is about.

My questions are:

1. Is this a red flag?

2. How do you guys prepare for interviews specifically with law firms that have little to some information on their website and Glassdoor?

Thank you so much in advance!
