Mr. Infrastructure Engineer

About Me:

I went into Civil Engineering because I saw the first-hand effects on people living in an impoverished and deteriorating community and wanted to be of the most help. I currently work as a project engineer in our energy group performing consulting work for many Fortune/Global 500 companies. I graduated 15 credits away from a double major in Econ.

I am concerned about the lack of promotions in engineering. Since I was asked to come back to a company I previously interned for, they brought me on at a higher role than usually possible, skipping a promotion entirely. The problem is that the next promotion is to a senior engineer typically at 8 years experience.

    Hi, Mr. Infrastructure Engineer, this is Julie-Anne Heafey at mbaMission. I like how you talk about being drawn to civil engineering because of your desire to solve problems, and it sounds like you have built some transferable skills for consulting. I’m a little unclear about the role that promotions are playing in your story – are you worried that the adcoms won’t think you are valued, or is this lack of upward trajectory what drives you to do something else? I have worked with engineers before and in some areas, what you describe promotion wise is common – I’d think about using the optional essay or even your recommender as a way to explain the context of how things work promotion wise at your …
