Now, taking all that he has learned, he will help you in discovering the amazing career opportunities within the power utility world.
After graduation, he discovers that many knowledge from the power utility world were not being taught in university courses. Like many engineer graduates who first entered the industry, he soon discovers that although the theoretical knowledge taught in school provides a fundamental knowledge base, it is not adequate to even to do the most basics of engineering job functions. In fact, he soon found out that he could not even communicate things properly with other coworkers as there are various industry-specific lingo and practice that it is very hard to learn without working within the industry for years and years.
Furthermore, knowledge in the how-to are not commonly found in the internet and a lot of times individual teams would only keep knowledge to themselves. This means that even if you are working in these companies, chances are that you may not get the overall picture as much as you hope.
