Engineering Project Manager, responsible for supporting the
product introduction of a new mass spectrometer.
"I think the single
most valuable thing that I did during my education was to get
some real world experience. It's very difficult to differentiate
yourself from the many other resumes and qualified candidates on
paper, just on education alone."
"Go out there and
get some real experience. Network. Collect people's names and
phone numbers and business cards and keep your electronic
Rolodex up-to-date and call on those contacts."
"Right now I'm responsible for supporting the product introduction of our
new matrix assisted laser desorbtion ionstation tunnel flight mass
spectrometer. We just call it Malditoff Mass spectrometer -- and this is a
new product that we purchased from a company that developed it in Reno.
Most recently my responsibilities have been to facilitate the transition
of non-HP product into our organization and give day-to-day support of the
production line and prepare this product for on-going routine in factoring
here. So that involves a lot of different things. One thing it involves is
that we have to know how to make the product routinely. So we have to get
proper documentation and capture the recipe. Because this was developed by
an outside company and the engineers are no longer with us, the people who
first built them are no longer with us, that's very critical."
