Do you feel held back or uncertain in your engineering career ?
You love engineering, you’re passionate about making an impact and excelling in your career BUT you’re facing a number of challenges and it feels like a struggle. How do you ensure your ideas are considered in a male dominated industry? Can you ask for an increase in salary? When do you know to bite the bullet and change jobs? These are only a few challenges and just one of these is enough to make you feel completely overwhelmed.
I want to tell you that it can be easier and you deserve more than feeling like you’re constantly treading water. If you want to move away from struggle and you’re ready for actionable steps that will make a difference, then you’re in the right place. You can:
- Watch/listen to The Savvy Engineer Show podcast and videos. These are brimming with advice and inspiration from incredible engineers and business leaders.
- Sign-up to The Savvy Engineer Community to receive inspiration and advice straight to your inbox. I’ll also send you a link to the Savvy Engineers facebook group where we can chat in depth and you can meet like minded engineers – because why do we always think we should do things alone!?
Over the past eight years I transferred from being a Personal Assistant with a Biology degree to a fully qualified Marine Engineer working on one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. It’s been an amazing path and this year I was awarded one the Telegraph’s Top 50 Women in Engineering. But it hasn’t been a walk in the park. Sometimes I wanted to give up on engineering as I felt my ideas were ignored and it was hard to gain any form of recognition. I struggled to know how to navigate pay negotiations, manage my time and most of all feel confident.
Now I use my experience to help other people in engineering who may be struggling or in need of help to overcome challenges and boost their careers. Why do I do this? Quite simply because I don’t want anyone else to feel as rubbish as I did at times!
On this site I provide advice and actionable tips through interviews with top engineers and business leaders AND connect like-minded engineers through an incredible community. I share all this through The Savvy Engineer Podcast & YouTube channel, live speaking at events, and presenting online & TV.
