“In every art, beginners must start with models of those who have practiced the same art before them.”

– Ruth Whitman

Learning doesn’t stop with graduation. In fact, it has been suggested that’s where the real learning begins. That’s why, at Commonwealth, we stem the tide of engineering “brain drain” by ensuring that, on Day One, senior-level engineers begin the process of transferring information acquired over many years to upcoming leaders. It’s a truly powerful investment where employees directly benefit from decades of hands-on, real-world experience on projects of all types and sizes, both here and abroad, each with their own unique set of circumstances and challenges. At Commonwealth, your mentoring extends beyond engineering into business itself. You’ll learn how to compete for and win projects with top-rate proposals, grow your interpersonal skills in formal personal and professional development training classes designed to maximize your talent, and discover how to successfully navigate often complex legal and bureaucratic requirements. Unlike some companies, our mentoring does not have an artificial shelf-life. Whether you’ve been in the business for 3 months or 30 years, you can still learn new things every day at Commonwealth. Truly, the sky’s the limit.

Q: How has the mentoring you’ve received at Commonwealth benefitted you professionally?

A: Career mentoring has helped me develop skills that I was not taught in the classroom. Without proper mentoring, the workplace would be much more difficult to manage day in and day out.
