Would you like to explain about your first job? What did you do to learn the ropes?
During my Masters, I interned at a semiconductor company. Although I knew the basics of hardware designs, that was not enough to design electronic circuits. I took help from experienced colleagues with some tips and suggestions, and they were beneficial. I also took out time and learned on my own to implement those things practically. That helped me to keep ahead of the curve and as an employer, I made a good impression.
