    Didn’t Receive a Job Offer?

    Post #13 If you Didn’t Receive a Job Offer, Read This

    Every person will be turned down after an interview at some point.  Sure, it may be disappointing or shocking at first, but it happens for the right reasons.  And remember, it is only a temporary feeling, it is not a reason to beat yourself up.  I am going to reframe your perception of the fact that you didn’t receive a job offer.  And I will also explain how you can use it as a tool moving forward.  So, stay with me here, if you dig a little deep with an open mind, it is not all bad!

    Post #3: Are you Prepared?

    Why would I dedicate a whole post to an obvious question – are you prepared?  Before I get into this, let me explain that despite all your high school honors and accolades, the engineering demands at the college level are astounding.  I guarantee you will be challenged both inside and outside the classroom.  Not only will you be juggling classes (with several hours of homework), you will be managing relationships, money, time, health, and hopefully some leisure.  Did I mention you will be responsible for boatloads of homework?  Did I also mention your course loads do not get any lighter as the semesters go by?
