Open minded

Name: John Roeleveld | Program: Geological Engineering | Graduation Year: 8T7 |

Be open minded to new opportunities: after completing my Engineer-in-Training program at my first job I was asked if I would consider working as a Sales Engineer. I took the offer even though I had never thought of sales as a career for me. Over 30 years later I’m still enjoying working in sales and although I’m in a position that doesn’t require an engineering background, I have maintained by professional engineering status. The discipline of an engineering education is no doubt a springboard to success in any career that you may ultimately end up in.
