I have a bachelors degree in electrical engineering. I'm a graduate trainee in a good company but the job is management based. I have nothing to learn. And I cant see any career path ahead.
I was hired by K-Electric and now I spend my time making presentations and reports for the department. I can't see anything technical in my job. I want to earn well but to earn well you have to learn well. I have financial constraints, so can't take expensive courses. Currently, I see no clear path to develop myself. I just want a specific career path. I have no one to guide. So, I don't know what should I do and what courses I should take.

    Hi Asad, First thing i would try is to talk to your supervisor and explain her/him that even though you know how important your job is, you would like to explore other more technical openings within the company. Find out whether that company offers to pay for your professional development courses in a nearby college. If that doesn't work try looking for jobs in other places and express that you like the challenge of using your engineering skills to solve problems. Don't close any doors or 'burn any bridges' but it's important to feel fine where you are. To feel you are contributing. Try to look for a mentor on-site. Otherwise i'd be happy to continue answering your questions. I wish you the best!
