Careers & Students/Training Questions
I'm currently 2 semesters away from getting my certificate in Robotics and Automation, and am curious as to what are the best first steps to take in starting my career? The interview and hiring process, and any advice that you can give to someone looking for entry level at my current experience level, which is still actively studying, but no experience in the industry.

Scott, There are multiple directions you can go after receiving your certificate. Work for a system integrator, maintenance in a plant some where, be a hired gun to program robots. Give me a call and we can discuss.
You've made a great career choice! There are many opportunities available in robotics and automation. Most employers recognize that no matter what degree or certification you've achieved in school you'll need additional training on the job so be ready and willing to continue learning. For the job search take advantage of the career services at your school if available. They can help with job fairs, resume reviews, interview practice, etc. Do your homework and research the companies you are interviewing with prior to the interview. Good luck!
