Mission: Building a World of Difference ®
I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (More than a year)
Casual atmosphere, hands off management, and freedom to do what I do best, which is design and drafting of construction documents for electrical substations.
There is limited growth potential and a fluctuating workload which does not promote stability or confidence in the future. I am being asked to stay here in the hope that projects will increase next year.
Advice to Management
Deploy your most skilled marketers to engage and retain your client's projects and workloads. Re-establish your preferred place as the main consultant for electrical engineering expertise.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Black & Veatch (Overland Park, KS).
They make sure to screen for the best, so only the best come through their screenings. They will want experience or a great reference. If the experience is not their then they ask for a high GPA. After that, you must be able to answer questions thoroughly on the fly. In what ever the application is, be sure you are an expert and bring to the table something that interests them. I gauged my audience and changed up what I was previously going to say. Be prepared I was interviewed in front of a panel and was prepared for such.
