I currently work with the person I would like to become my mentor. In my position at work, I am required to complete electrical designs for systems that are low, medium and high voltage. He has assisted in helping me become a better engineer/designer and will advise where I can look if I need some assistance on finding code requirements. He works closely with the CSA as well. He advises on creating logs and referencing standards when designing. He reviews my work and advises on errors but does expect me to determine the correct path forward instead of supply the answers.

As the eldest in my family and the first to enter the field of civil engineering, I faced several obstacles that could've been avoided with guidance of a mentor. After struggling to start my civil engineering degree, I was able to graduate with a Dean's Honor Roll. That said, due to personal circumstances, I was unable to particpate in the Co-op program at my university and it was impossible for me to obtain an internship. Graduating during COVID has also presented me with more challenges in taking the first step into the civil engineering industry. I am hoping that my mentor would provide me with the tools and steps needed to pave the road towards my first civil engineering career.

I am a mechanical engineer who switched to consulting industry last year after completing MSc degree in engineering. The last year has been a roller coaster ride for me. I am fascianated to learn things just by asking, listening stories and observing the experts vs. what I was doing before: sitting for long hours doing research, building my testbed with trial and errors. Bringing the self discipline and curiosity to get my hands dirty to this indusrty I feel I am growing in the right path. I had great interior mentors but now I would like to expend my buble to fgain a wider perspective on how things are being handled in the industry.
