Charles’s Answer

Your day-to-day experience can vary depending on many factors, including: where your company is located (e.g. HQ or research lab), or which division of the company you are working for (e.g. design, engineering, legal, marketing, etc.), or your level of education and managerial experience.

Your day should allow for time to prioritize and complete your work assignments, for time to digest and respond to emails, and for time to join and participate in meetings.

The actual work you do may have a near-term impact (marketing, sales) or a long-term impact (design, engineering) and your contributions can feel exciting and fun, or can feel like the work moves at a glacial pace and never see the light of day.

Try to follow your heart and work on things you are passionate about.

Equally as important, try to identify co-workers inside and outside of your division who can mentor you, help refine your ideas, champion your work, and support your professional growth.

Jyoti’s Answer

A typical start of my day is usually by jotting down what all plans I have to complete and then prioritize depending on their urgency and importance.
A quick 15 – 20 mins catchup (stand up) with my immediate team.
Checking my emails and calendar and make any adjustments accordingly if required.

The most interesting part about a working week is that there rarely is a ‘typical’ day.
One day could be busy in workshops with stakeholders and the other day I could be working on requirements and solutions with my team either in person or through screens across the globe.
The next day could be packed with gathering reports and stats to go in a presentation or training business on the new upcoming solution.

I strive to end the working day on time and on a positive and productive note by keeping the long breaks to minimum throughout the day.

In my career so far, what has remained consistent is the unpredictability of any given situation and what comes to rescue is the efficiency to deal with them with a calm and stable mindset, I try my best to reach that.

Hope this helps! Good luck :)

Ivy’s Answer

Stackz, my experience on a typically day of the week varies. It used to be spending a good time in the office in meetings and producing reports and documents that are needed by my manager or others. Even though I still do those activities today, it does not involve meeting people in-person, since we now work from home. So I miss the face-to-face communication with my colleagues in the office.

By the way, in meetings and in the reports I produce, they are focused on solving problems. And in doing so, I get to do some research on the topic, ask some people who are more knowledgeable about the topic for their guidance, and then draw my own conclusions. I hope this helps.

John’s Answer

Great question! My day started at 7:00am. I would report in and receive my days job assignments form a lead tech or shop foreman. From there I worked each work order or job ticket, each shop has different terms, until they were completed. Each job was different. It could be anything from a preventive maintenance service, or PM as its called to performing general repairs such as brakes, tires, tune up, and running diagnostic testing. As I worked my tickets I would also have to request the different parts I needed on each ticket. We would take a lunch break around noon and the day would end around 3:30pm. I like working as a mechanic because each day was different with the type of work I would be assigned. I hope this helped and I wish you the best on your journey!
