In what challenging part of this job do you have the most experience?

Now everything is becoming a challenge. If one is to win, one must have adequate knowledge of the current situation. And I have more experience in this factor. I hope your project is a success.

I am a project engineer specializing in the construction of high voltage infrastructure for utilities.

Best parts of the job:

  • I earn good money
  • My skills are always in demand, finding a job is not a real problem
  • Work schedules are consistent; I don't do a lot of overtime as clients generally don't pay for it so I can have a life outside of work.
  • I use my brain a lot; part of the job requires finding solutions to technical problems.
  • I can see my work in the real world
  • I work relatively independently when it comes to monitoring - I am left to my own devices when I run a project, a

I am a project engineer specializing in the construction of high voltage infrastructure for utilities.

Best parts of the job:

  • I earn good money
  • My skills are always in demand, finding a job is not a real problem
  • Work schedules are consistent; I don't do a lot of overtime as clients generally don't pay for it so I can have a life outside of work.
  • I use my brain a lot; part of the job requires finding solutions to technical problems.
  • I can see my work in the real world
  • I work relatively independently when it comes to monitoring - they leave me to my own devices when I run a project, and my bosses will only get involved when something blows up on a project, which fortunately for me, not much happens. .
  • It's good to really understand how something that is so vital to society (electrical transmission and distribution) really works on such an intimate level. When you turn on a light, it's people like me who make it happen.

Worst parts of the job:

  • Working with project managers and other personnel who do not understand what it takes to produce a design that will not have any spectacular errors; They absorb a lot of my time with a lot of nonsense, and I spend a lot of time holding my hand and explaining things to them, I think they should know if they are going to manage a project.
  • Dealing with people who think that cutting budgets or pushing aggressive schedules will have no impact on the quality of work or the viability of the project; the constant searching under the couch for spare coins really drives me crazy. Just spend the money and get it right. Give me time to do the project well.
  • Dealing with clients who think that anything that goes wrong can and should be left to the feet of the contractor (me), even when the problem is beyond the scope of the contractor's work.
  • Dealing with clients who are concerned about scope change orders, when it is their action that triggered it. They want us to work essentially for free.
  • As I write this, I am trying to download some design drawings into clients' project folders, and have wasted about an hour trying to do so because the client-issued computer sucks that it can't read a CD. and I had to find another way to download them. Some of these guys will do nothing to make sure we have the tools to get the job done without having to go through a lot of obstacles or find solutions.

You have to be plowing in a straight line for the peanut plantation. The distance between the two lines is 26 inches.

The first row of the bottom five plow is removed. The distance between the individual plows in the last row is kept at 26 inches.

So now you have three bottom plows left that are 26 inches apart from each other.

Many other farmers use different measurements like 32, 18, 20 inches.

The reason for our choice of 26 inches would be difficult to understand for ordinary people who are not familiar with agriculture and its methods.

It would also be very difficult for me

You have to be plowing in a straight line for the peanut plantation. The distance between the two lines is 26 inches.

The first row of the bottom five plow is removed. The distance between the individual plows in the last row is kept at 26 inches.

The reason for our choice of 26 inches would be difficult to understand for ordinary people who are not familiar with agriculture and its methods.

It would also be very difficult for me to explain the whole process of plowing straight lines in this answer through writing. Although I have tried to write about it, it is not up to par or detailed. 1

Anyway, this is what it looks like when it's getting ready.

But that is not the end. Many other jobs are done before planting.

All these processes do not have professional names in English or I may ignore them and it would be very difficult for me to find related words.

Therefore, it is almost impossible to explain all this to people who have never been to a farm. So, I'm skipping that. Maybe one day I'll talk about this on Instagram Live.

Anyway, the most challenging part of my job is plowing straight lines.

How do I handle it?

The great thing about this challenging part is that even if you can't do it perfectly, it's absolutely fine.

Many farmers, myself included, cannot always plow perfect straight lines. Achieving that greatness takes years of experience.

When I started farming in 2015, my only goal was to master this art. That is why I have constantly strived to polish this skill. And that's why I'm in a respectable position, if not at the top level, when it comes to plowing straight lines.

And even if one can't, and is really bad at it, it doesn't affect much. The key factor here is the distance between the two lines, which should be constant, so that when you have to plow between the two lines after planting to remove weeds, it doesn't become a mess.

All of this is really difficult to explain. It may be that one day Quora will introduce the Live feature and then we will talk about it in detail.

Wow, tough question. I must say that there are a lot of great companies that are an eye catcher to me. They are brands that I love like NIKE, Apple and Zara. However, to be honest, to select which company I would be the CEO of, I would have to start by evaluating myself and then take my true passions and select the company that best suits my happiness.

So the attributes that I have that I would like to have at work are:

  1. Creative: I am passionate about creativity and innovative thinking. I love the idea of ​​an environment where at any moment I would have to do something.

So the attributes that I have that I would like to have at work are:

  1. Creative: I am passionate about creativity and innovative thinking. I love the idea of ​​an environment where, at any moment, I would have to do something artistic / creative (or hire someone to do it).
  2. Fun: I don't like to be bored.
  3. Collaborative: I want to work with other creative thinkers. I want to feel like I'm in a daily think tank.
  4. Innovative: I want to have to push the boundaries of whatever industry I work for.
  5. Results-oriented - I want a way that metrics can show me that all the work that was orchestrated was really good (or really bad, haha).

After analyzing everything you expected from a company, if you were the CEO of any company ... you would have to choose the BBDO advertising agency. I admire your work and facilities. I can't help but look at each of his ads and fantasize about how amazing he was behind the scenes. They push the boundaries of advertising and always manage to do it creatively. And that's why my pick is BBDO.

The challenges you face at work can be basically divided into two parts:

a) Technical challenges: keeping up with the many changes in my occupational health and safety case, as well as obtaining the necessary certifications to give credibility to my consulting skills, such as earning my 2019 certification from the Florida State Fire Marshal in "Health and Safety Officer".

b) Organizational challenges: learning how to best fit in with making yourself valuable. This means that you will better know where you stand on the organization chart in relation to authority and responsibility. If you are a sa

b) Organizational challenges: learning how to best fit in with making yourself valuable. This means that you will better know where you stand on the organization chart in relation to authority and responsibility. If you are a security professional, the biggest challenge is learning to expand your sphere of influence with other departments.

Most security professionals have little line authority. I just interviewed for a security professional job in 2019 with a local bus transportation department. Apparently, they have given their safety professional some line authority that he or she could "kick butt" on if safety regulations were not followed or if the buses were not properly inspected before being put on the road. That is unusual.

I am on the Safety and Security committee that has many campus administrators. These are people that I, as a security professional on the org chart, must give in to (and rightly so). You have to be careful of the traps people will put you into. Lately, some people told me to find sneeze guards to open the campus, but they did not give me money to buy anything ...

Someone who didn't know their place in the organization would have stupidly gone out and ordered the guards to sneeze without committee approval. All I did was look for places where they could get them and put that information into an Excel spreadsheet, then upload it for committee review. Never exceed your authority. They didn't tell me to buy anything, just look where we could get them.

In the end, they took my job away from me and handed it over to the finance department, which should have had it in the first place.

My job involves dealing with uncertainty every day. And I love it !

I do R&D (research and development), so there is a point where you have to balance theoretical analysis and implementation in the real world.

This part is particularly challenging, because separating phases like that also induces a separation in my mind. To be more precise, I previously thought that drawing a line between theory and practice would help me focus more on whatever area is of greatest interest. That is why the transition makes me feel out of place, it goes against my mental model used to perceive the

The fun part is that I noticed those triggers in my mind and can adjust my internal settings accordingly. I have always been fascinated by how humans think, that perhaps explains my decision to pursue a degree in Computer Science.

Not really in the company, but in its data center. My experience is related to cloud computing, and most of the people I know don't seem to realize what I really mean. So for them, I want to buy a smoke machine, something like this, and put it in the data center and in my cabin. So when someone opens the door, the fog is shed and I can proudly say "WELCOME TO THE CLOUD"

The terms "work" in themselves are challenging!

Every day we walk into the office with a challenge, here are some challenges that I encounter in my work life.

  1. When I was a recruiter, we had the great challenge of hiring 70 new employees and it was a week before the next induction section.
  2. Another challenge was to retain employees, as the attrition rate was high, and the main reason for this was the youth of today, who are full of arrogance and attitude, than without knowledge. They join you with an attitude of resignation in hand.

  3. In my digital marketing section, the challenge I faced was that one of our clients sued us for compensation of $ 100,000 due to the Google penalty facing their website and they thought it was due to our task.

These are some of the most remembered challenges I could think of, but yes, achieving any of the above was not easy! Give full credit to

  • Management (For your trust in us)
  • Teammates (for their trust in "us")
  • Your patients (for their great efforts to meet the challenges)

With this combination we were in a safe place and we were also recognized by senior management.

A simple answer to your two questions in my work is "human beings".

People can be unpredictable, contemptuous, and downright nasty at times.

On the other hand, people can be proactive, cooperative, and absolutely wonderful.

Rewarding people generally end up succeeding ...

The hardest part of my job, figuring out what the hell the other person was thinking while coding this shit.

Most of my work consists of changing legacy code and most of the time without documentation.

You have a requirement to change, you have to find where it is, read every corner of the code and somehow put yours in the middle and yeah, that thing has to be bug free!

I've done several startups, but probably only the ones that were made in this 2010/2011 era are relevant because the economy in North America is unique (compared to earlier times) and the comparative ease of doing business around the world now (a difference from then).

It would conserve cash in the early stages. My mistake was spending a lot of money before the product was ready to post real revenue, before I had a repeatable sales model. In other words, there is a period of customer experience experimentation that occurs in a startup where the vision / product / sales model is refined. I have come to realize that it is only when you try to close deals that you "really learn" what people are looking for, the features they want and need from you.

Any marketing you've done up to that point may have the wrong message. When the time comes when you're ready to go, the more cash you have, the better. As some of the respondents said, you need the cash to run.
