Electrical Engineers

Advancement Prospects

Electrical engineering careers usually offer many avenues for advancement. An engineer straight out of college will usually take a job as an entry-level electrical engineer and advance to higher positions after acquiring some job experience and technical skills. Electrical engineers with strong technical skills who show leadership ability and good communications skills may move into positions that involve supervising teams of engineers and making sure they are working efficiently. They can advance from these positions to that of a chief engineer. The chief engineer usually oversees all electrical engineering projects and has authority over project managers and managing engineers.
