I originally moved to America for a job, assuming I probably wouldn’t be staying very long. But after deciding to settle in America and to move on from that job, and in fact that entire career path, I had to think about what I would be doing next and how I would get there. I think we all know by now that the vast majority of the job hunting process is actually networking. The first step of networking is talking to people you know: old school mates, old college friends, people you worked with on a Saturday, or really anyone in your history. But what if your history is 4,620 miles away? Then you have to learn to network from scratch, like I recently did.
In this episode, I am going to answer some questions from some of the engineers who participated in our Engineering Management Accelerator Online Workshop. We had so many great questions during this course related to professional development, job promotions, communication, leadership and more, that I decided to share the answers here so that engineers all over the world can benefit from them.
