If you been in Engineering for even a couple of years, you realized that your BS/BSE didn’t teach you everything that you needed to know. From these on the job learnings, you realize that coding and engineering are rather pointless by themselves and only become important when they are used to solve a real world problem. Example: If you work in the financial sector, you better know what tax laws cover the product you are building.
So I thought that it would be fun to have a continuous list of the strange skills that we have learned on the job.
I’ll go first:
- How to run a gas pump
- How to run an EV charging station
- How parking gates work
- The basic business plan of a parking lot
- What is the “best price” for a product in a retail store.
- Why $1.06 is the worse price
I have more, but wanted to see the other things people have done.
