Posted by: Gavin Au-Yeung Date: July 15, 2022 Category: Blog

1. Curiosity

Engineers who are curious are interested in how things work. This curiosity results in a desire to constantly expand on their knowledge. Therefore, curious Engineers are lifelong learners who jump at the chance to improve themselves. Furthermore, successful Engineers will be up-to-date with the latest technological advancements that can help improve their quality of work.

2. Critical Thinker

Complex problems do not have simple solutions. However, successful Engineers use critical thinking to solve a variety of challenges. Individuals become critical thinkers through training and real-world experience.

3. Logical Thinking

Successful Engineers have the ability to understand complex systems. This includes how the systems can malfunction and be repaired. As a result, logical thinking allows individuals to see how each part of a complex system can work together in harmony. In addition, understanding complex systems will allow Engineers to create new and more efficient ways to operate.

4. Attention to Detail

It is easy to overlook tiny details when working on a large project. Successful Engineers are able to pay attention to the smallest details. This is because a small error could potentially ruin an entire project, cost a lot of money, or even result in fatal consequences. Taking great care to notice the small details is what makes Engineers successful.

5. Teamwork and Communication

A successful Engineer is only as successful as their team. Due to the size of their projects, Engineers often work in large teams. Successful Engineers have strong communication skills and are able to work well with others. This includes being able to communicate effectively with both team members, managers, and potential clients.

Are you an internationally trained Engineer?

Internationally trained Engineers have plenty of skill and ability to contribute to the Canadian workforce. However, unrecognized international credentials, a lack of Canadian experience, and other barriers may prevent skilled newcomers from working in their dream careers.

Career Loans is here to provide free career support and counselling for skilled newcomers in Alberta and Saskatchewan. In addition, an optional micro loan of up to $15,000 is available for those who require financial assistance.
