Our Engine Room Partners Share Their #2020Goals
By Engine Room Posted 2yr(s) ago Reading Time: A few minutes
Get fit, travel the world, get a promotion: these are some of the most common New Year’s Resolutions. But according to a statistic, 80% of us give up on our resolutions by the middle of February. Don’t despair! If you need some motivation to stick to yours, or even some #inspo on what goals to set, we’ve got your back.
Read on to find out how our Engine Room partners plan on making 2020 their best year yet.
I want to solve problems with engineering
“I’m a final-year student, so my goal for this year is to find a full-time job that I’m interested in. When I was in Primary school, I hated maths. I was SO bad at it. I don’t know when things changed exactly, but these days, I love calculating and solving maths problems. I guess that’s why I chose to study engineering!"
I want to inspire and be inspired
“As an ECG counsellor, I guide engineering students in their education and career journey. This year, I want to continue playing an active role in introducing engineering students to the various industries and jobs available. I believe that by collaborating more closely with industry partners to promote engineering, we can create a more positive image of the industry and inspire more to become engineers!
I also want to embrace lifelong learning. Apart from keeping up with engineering trends, I hope to learn at least one new skill, like app development or advanced coaching techniques, that will help me improve my productivity.”
I want to make every hour count
“I’m currently doing a part-time degree at NUS in Mechanical Engineering, while working full-time as an Application Engineer at Makino. So naturally, my #2020goal is to successfully juggle both. Some say that working and studying at the same time is crazy, but I say: challenge accepted! It just takes some proper time management and a little bit of perseverance.
In fact, I’m going to challenge myself even further at work by learning new skills in micromachining and 5-axis machining, all whilst making time to play badminton at least once a week with my colleagues. Work-life balance? Nailed it.”
I want to make every employee a happy one
“I have an ambitious dream of making Murata the Employer of Choice for aspiring engineers and technicians, especially amongst students. To do so, I’m setting myself a personal goal to advocate “Employee Happiness” by addressing workplace relations, improving the working conditions and advocating for work-life balance. I believe that only if we have all these in place can we truly be the Employer of Choice.
Outside of work, I love watching Formula One races. One of my life goals is to watch all the races all over the world live so I can be close to the action. Hopefully, this year takes me one step closer to achieving this!”
What are your goals for 2020? From learning something new to starting a full-time job, we hope our Engine Room partners have inspired you to make 2020 one of your best years too!
