We understand that you don’t learn everything that you will need to know for this job in school. That’s why recent graduates will have access to structured resources at Donohue. Young engineers have experienced staff to guide them on projects from the outset, and our company culture encourages continual on-the-job learning.
Additionally, we embrace and encourage participation in professional organizations and technical conferences. These opportunities are great ways to learn about cutting-edge advances in the industry, network with your peers, and interact with current and potential clients.
Finally, annual goal-setting sessions will provide you with a forum to let the company know where you want to go in the coming year. Together with your supervisor, you will set goals and outline the steps to achieving them. We are an advocate for your professional growth and believe that we have a responsibility to see our employees succeed.
