Emily Argabright asked Kristin Malosh, North Star BlueScope Steel

Kristin, I currently am a geotechnical engineer, and am unsure if I like it and might want to go the energy path and get my masters. Did you ever think of switching?

    Hi Emily. I was pretty solid in my degree choice while in school. I wasn't sure exactly what job I would find afterwards, but I was fortunate to go into consulting to start out. Environmental engineering can take you in many directions, so starting in consulting I was able to see many different applications of my field and found out that I really enjoyed manufacturing. I work for a steel company now as the Health, Safety and Environmental manager. It is AWESOME being a part of a company that all strives for the same goal every day. I do think getting a Masters degree is a great idea- especially to do while you are still in that timeframe of school, it gets very difficult to go back after you get out into the "real world".  Best of luck to you! Kristin
