I'm a very hands on type person and love to be working in and around things. I would like to get into the defense and/or energy sector once completing school.
I've found that (as to be expected) most engineering jobs are the boring 8 hour a day in offices type deals. That's not for me (and maybe I chose the wrong major haha). I've been looking at some of the bigger name companies such as GE, Rolls Royce, large utility companies, and they offer some positions that seem to be perfect fits!
For instance, GE has a field service engineer that involves the expected engineering work, along with actually going out and getting your hands on their products (turbines, generators, etc). However, for those positions specifically, alot of them say "Come see us on a campus near you!" Well, unfortunately there are none of those near me.
So does anyone have any advice for a young engineer looking for a more interactive position? Any companies come to mind? Willing to travel anywhere!
Thanks for reading!
