What I liked

There was lots of field work and experience in different areas (industrial and agricultural). It gave me another side of engineering that I hadn't considered - I don't have to go into design and can do more regarding permitting and compliance. I also ended up learning a lot about the wine industry which I hadn't explored before.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been a remote/hybrid option; I ended up spending a lot of time alone in my office doing desk work that could have been done from home and eliminated the 40-minute commute.


I would say to go in with an open mind. I don't think I really knew much about the field or the position before going in, so I got experience from every aspect of the position.
