As new employees in any organization, early career engineers are challenged to be able to quickly make a contribution and become leaders in their area of expertise. In Marta’s field of sustainable energy, her new role gave her the opportunity to potentially reduce CO2 emissions by at least a gigaton. In order to quickly make a direct impact, she realized she would need to pivot from the original career path she initially envisioned for herself. Deviating from that known path is always uncomfortable, however, doing so allows you to make significant contributions.
