We've done the research, consulted the experts, and published their wisdom. And if it lends insight to your job hunt, we've listed it here for your quick reference.
Where did engineers first develop the precursors of modern concrete and what does that have to do with plate tectonics?
Science fiction provides inspiration and escape, but it's also a project buffer for future engineers. Quirky and inspirational ideas, beyond reach of the writer's contemporaries, can remain in circulation as fiction while the rest of the world catches up. In Future, Please, EngineerJobs looks at beloved and bizarre fictional gadgets and our attempts to realize them. First up: power armor and jet packs.
We spoke with Tim Ivory, a marine engineer who specializes in restoring and preserving vintage boats. He began his career on the retired FDNY fireboat John J Harvey, earning a reputation for ingenuity and passion. This led to regular commercial work in the Harbor and North River, where he developed a following among owners, companies, and preservationists. Now, Tim works as an independent engineer.
Layoffs can leave engineers with unattractive gaps in their employment history. How does a long unemployment span affect your chances of landing the next job and what can you do to better the odds?
This universe, or the next, could kill us at any moment.
While popular fiction is glutted with robot uprisings, zombie plagues, and apocalyptic warfare, none of our fictive inventions match fundamental physics for terrifying beauty and finality. To remedy any troublesome optimism or hope you may experience this fall, Engineer Jobs is pleased to present three cosmic disasters which could strike at any moment.
Despite a withering recession in the first decade of this century, the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook is full of reasons for engineers to be optimistic.
Returning service personnel bring proven skills and valuable training to the engineering workplace, though misapprehensions regarding military work experience and service disabilities can complicate their private sector careers.
It's no secret that social networking and the Internet play a huge role in the quest for landing the perfect job. From online job searches, to research, to online applications you're sure to spend a great majority of your job search on the Internet. But in the midst of the abundant expanse of online research you perform during your job search, one crucial part of your investigation may be left out: You.
Congratulations, you got an interview! But the sense of accomplishment is short-lived. The next thoughts that come to mind are visions of sweaty palms, dusty suits, and uncomfortably long silent pauses. Before long your brain jumps to anticipating those vague "what-are-they-trying-to-learn-anyway" interview questions. Fortunately, interviewing is a skill, and like any other, it can be learned and improved.
After a gap in engineering research and development during the Dark Ages, the West moved slowly towards an investigation of concrete's potential.
Held back by poor access to pozzolanic materials, stone and mortar remained the civil and architectural engineering material of choice in the majority of European centers. In some regions, work progressed towards eventual rediscovery of hydraulic cement and sophisticated admixtures.
Ask ten people "is an MBA worth it?" and you are likely to get ten different opinions. We talked with Jay Rogers, Vice President of Recruiting for Randstad Engineering, Matt DiGeronimo, Managing Director of Smith Floyd Mergers & Acquisitions and former Navy Nuclear Submarine Officer, and Dennis Chandler, who holds an MBA from Purdue in addition to his MS in Mechanical Engineering to discuss the value of an MBA on an engineering career.
We recently polled a group of engineers and engineer hopefuls on their dream jobs in engineering. Though our methods were by no means scientific (if you're looking for statistical significance you should definitely not click this), our findings did reveal creative passion, inspiring confidence in the future of engineering, and overall were not as disturbing as we thought they would be.
Thin, robust, and language-neutral, Robot Operating System provides a standardized core of OS functions and an extensive library of over 2,000 packages, enabling researchers and engineers to focus on invention instead of re-invention.
