1. What was your educational/professional background before coming to the MSRT program?
I had a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.
2. How has your career progressed since you graduated from the MSRT program?
I am now working for a medical device company as an account manager. It is my first job after graduating and I’ve been here for 7 months.
3. In your current employment, what are your duties and responsibilities?
I am a sales representative, so basically, I try to make connections with home care agencies, veteran organizations, and doctor’s offices to try and identify people that could benefit from the device. I work our exhibit booth at healthcare conferences. I also coordinate device installation in people’s homes as well as maintenance visits for devices that are currently in people’s homes in the Pittsburgh area.
4. Is there any information you would like to share, or any advice you would like to offer current and future MSRT students?
It’s all about making small steps up the ladder. Chances are you are not going to be in your dream job or making as much as you think you should right out of college. The trick is to keep improving your position as the years go on. You may even need to get a job that pays the bills while you pursue your passion on the side & that’s okay.
