In this session of The Engineering Career Coach (TECC) Podcast, I interview Matt Mangano, an EIT originally from New Jersey who recently relocated to San Diego. Matt reviews seven lessons that he has learned from starting a small engineering consulting company as an EIT.
Most engineers are terrified of going out on their own, and for good reason. However, Matt discusses many benefits of doing so and walks through his own experience in this session.
