Hello that is an interesting question. When I got my engineering degree I wanted to become a chartered engineer. I live in the UK and a professional engineer can get the qualification and put C. Eng after their name. That was my goal in my 20s and I did before I was 30.
But I am still working 40 year later. Goals and plans are important. If you don't have a plan you can't change it. I have learnt to set goals and plan for the next 5 years. Further than that is too far in the uncertain future!
Rod recommends the following next steps:
- Think and plan what you want to do for the 5 years after finishing your education.
