The main professional lesson of my career is that you need to like your work. We spend so much time at work that if we don’t enjoy what we do and if this repeats throughout each day, 5 days a week is impossible to be successful. Moreover, you lose precious time. As professionals, we owe it to ourselves to do what we love. As managers we owe to our colleagues a work environment they will enjoy.
Throughout my career, I have received excellent support from my peers and leadership teams. It’s just great to feel part of such a successful global business with so much potential.
My advice to young professionals is to focus on the technology. Career growth will follow soon enough. From my experience, in this field you need to be extremely focused and to pay attention to every single detail. We need to be very precise. If there is an anomaly, it is impossible to ignore it because it will reflect in the overall performance of the application, so attention to detail is crucial.
I really liked that I was given an important project to work on, and while it was a steep learning curve, it built my confidence, improved my communications skills and prepared me for a full-time role. From intern to a successful product engineer.
I join Garrett after I met a Garrett turbo engineer at the Formula SAE design, build, test and race project. I got the job as a product engineer and, from day one, I was impressed with the support I received, not just for technical training but in softer business skills.
