Does anyone remember Google Glass? I can think of a few other pieces of technology that showed potential merits over the last decade or so, but didn't seem to catch on in a mainstream way. Some of these include: ·A keyboard that was projected onto any surface that it was placed on. · Another projector, ...

Hi Misty, It sounds like you have a lot on your plate. Undergrad is often one of the first times we come across other people who share the same classes or dorm rooms with each other, but aside from that, live very different lives from one another. It may be the reality that you simply have a lot more ...

Our office has been trying to incorporate sustainability into their gift giving. This year, we received a notebook and pen set that can be used together. The notebook is reusable and its pages can be cleaned and re-used. I haven't given its materials a close look yet but depending on what it is made ...

Hey all, I'm bringing this thread back to life in order to share another resource that might help some of you study for the PE, given the new change in format. I've started a YouTube channel where I will be posting walkthroughs of various PE problems, using the PDF reference manuals provided ...

I wanted to start a light topic and ask what some of the most interesting or funny things are that you have ever seen on a resume. I'll start by sharing some favorites. I myself used to keep a single line at the bottom of my "work experience" section detailing my college work as a paintball ...

Hi Gergino, Please find my comments below. I don't have very many comments apart from some minor suggestions. Your resume format is very clean and neat. If you are looking for industry work, I would consider moving your Professional Experience to the top. This could be followed by Research ...

Hi Palak, Some comments on your resume: Start by providing only one phone number so as not to confuse potential recruiters with too much information. Keeping it simple is best. 1. I would move Education to the very bottom of your resume. In this section, if you are applying to jobs in the USA, ...

Hi Nalah, Your resume is very neat and easy to read. Consider my lack of major changes a testament to the good shape that your resume is already in. Personally, I find that adding a simple objective statement such as "EIT seeking to continue career as a [job title] at [company name] is a good ...

Andrew Kline Objective line: I think its good you have a line at the top of your resume explaining who you are: I would recommend editing it slightly for each specific position that you apply to. Also, feel free to remove some of the qualifying words such as "hard working student". I'm a fan of ...

Hey Bill, I really appreciate the last section of the article that mentions that we should all be more open to talking about the emotions of starting a career. I think it can be really easy to forget how jarring it can be to leave school and suddenly work 40+ hours per week in a completely ...

Congratulations on your promotion. A few basic suggestions which could certainly be expanded on by others with more experience than me. Schedule time for occasional 1 on 1 meetings with your staff - frequency of these will depend on how many people you manage directly. Use the time to ask how things ...

I was curious if anyone follows any channels on YouTube that are related to engineering concepts. Feel free to bring up channels that are tangentially related to engineering as well. I think the one of the best examples of this is the channel Practical Engineering. Most everyone has likely ...

My friends used to make fun of me because I was still using a Microsoft Zune to listen to music until 2017. It still works to this day, and occasionally just needs a battery replacement. I finally caved and subscribed to a streaming service instead but the Zune was a loyal companion for 10 years. ...

Thanks Daniel. From what I can tell, its definitely more than just engineers who find the value of spreadsheets for things such as organization. I once read an article about this topic and how the spreadsheet was originally anticipated to be used only for certain analytical things, but has since evolved ...

Thanks Chad! I've never used Kayak for anything outside of looking up flights. I also agree, its amazing how far one can travel these days with relatively nothing required in terms of preparation or understanding about one's destination. I also appreciate the similarities you identified between a project ...

I realize that this is the time of year where a lot of people would have just come home from some kind of vacation. I was wondering - what analytical parts of yourself do you bring to the table when planning for travel or leisure? Or do you completely turn off the engineering part of your brain and just ...
