How is it juggling university and full time work?

Initially, I expected the work-uni balance would be a real challenge, however since I have got to know my colleagues at Firstco, I already feel prepared to face all the university work on top on my engineering tasks. Firstco are also more than happy to accommodate during busy university periods, especially around exam-period, ensuring that I have the time I need to revise and be prepared.

What do you like most about working at Firstco?

Two reasons I love working at Firstco:

  1. The incredibly interesting projects and wide range of skills that you learn during each task. Each project requires different skills, which I started developing on my very first week.
  2. The team at Firstco make work life so much easier, and far more enjoyable.

What advice would you give to others considering a career in engineering/at Firstco?

There is no better way to start a new job/placement than to jump right into working and project life, learning what you can and taking advice from other more experienced engineers. I had an amazing mentor during my first three months, teaching me almost everything I needed to know to start off in control and communication systems.
