Are you a fresh embedded systems graduate and looking for embedded systems jobs or internship?
Here is a small piece of advice, which no one else is sharing.
If you are passionate about embedded systems, than, that needs to be visible in what you are doing while not on the job.
The interviewer or hiring manager is looking for how much knowledge you have in the basics of electronics and programming, embedded systems.
Which all microcontrollers you have worked with or experimented with.
What all interfaces you have worked on.
Interviewers will love, when you show something which no one else is doing.
Here is a tactical advice, what you could do:
Pick an interesting project, create a google doc and start documenting how you progress
Write down what is the project all about, why did you pick this embedded project, the block diagram, and what results are expected when you complete it.
Now, keep working on your embedded project and keep adding the notes, and pictures as you progress.
Add details like what did not work in the 1st go, how did you finally make it work, and what did you learn?
In this process, you will learn how to work on a project.
Also, this will be a very nice way of showing how you progressed from starting a new project to finally completing it.
It will help you improve your presentation, and communication skills(written) as well.
Remember 95% of the success is how good you are in the communication, 5% is the skill.
Communication is about how you listen/understand, and how you respond, both in written and verbal form. Any language.
This will help you become a better engineer, you will have a project journey to show during your interview.
Embedded Systems Engineer rarely do this.
Here are some embedded systems articles which are useful for a someone who a beginner.
I hope you have learned something new today.
Best of Luck for your search for embedded systems job.
