Dream Job

Hello everyone brave enough to post on this thread. I would like to know two things about you.

1. Where your team hails from.(Also include team #)
2. What your dream/goal for life is, and how FIRST helps you achieve it.

I'll start,
My team is 1652 and we hail from Pleasant Prairie wisconsin.

My dream in life is to build and design a fully functional humanoid robot. But not just any bot, I want to make one that can last a week without a recharge, can operate in extream temperatures, and is able to think for itself.(with absolutely no help from a human operator.)
FIRST is helping me reach my dream by allowing me to build robots at a very early age. I personaly am having a blast programming our team's robot

Well that it for me, now someone elses turn

Re: Dream Job

I'm from Fredericksburg, VA from team 2021. I'm not quite sure where I want to go but FIRST has given me insight into embedded systems and engineering. I am just a junior though. Maybe next year Ill know more, maybe not until I get into college.

Also, see this thread. http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...ight=dream+job

I can't believe how much being on this team has helped me, not only by being a good reference for college applications but for also learning some basic and advanced factors of mechanical engineering.

Raider Robotics, team 25, North Brunswick NJ.
My dream is to become General Manager of a Professional Sports team or to be a driver in the Nextel Cup. FIRST has helped me develop my mind to look outside the box at strategies and things of that nature. It has also taught me leadership skills, as well as many other necessary skills.

My dream career field would be in the photography field...working with people is a good skill to have. This whole experience for me has been fullfilling and Im learning so much from everyone on my team.

Re: Dream Job

My dream is to one day work at Pixar or be a part of and animation crew in a big shot company. FIRST helped me realize I have a knack for animation. Always have but never knew. It also taught me that If you work hard at something, you'll get what you want. I wanted a reigional award for animation competition. Over the summer of my junior year I taught myself 3ds max. It was the most frusturating thing i could have ever done. But in the end, I got what I wanted, but realized something else that was even more important.

Re: Dream Job

Five build-seasons ago, I joined Beach Cities Robotics, team 294, knowing nothing about FIRST nor anything like it.

Each year I learned more than I ever had in school about the practical applications of not only science and technology but cooperation, leadership, and schedule.

My dream job has always been to make, create, invent, and discover rather than duplicate, maintain, or destroy. I especially did not want to do any pedestrian job outside of these categories. I wanted to be an "inventor" in kindergarten. "Mad scientist" was my first grade costume. For years after that, I wanted to be an electrical engineer. FIRST did not change my direction towards, but it indisputably strengthened it. Without FIRST, I would be just another sideline spectator of technology, without anything to support my transition into the real application of knowledge.

I was able to expound on many priceless experiences, most of which directly resulted from FIRST, on my college admissions essays. Apparently colleges understand the value of these, as I have so far been admitted to five University of California schools of engineering. I fully credit FIRST for this feat which, based GPA and other more common indicators, would never be possible.

This summer I will be putting my experience from robotics to use at one of the most respected engineering firms in the country. The Aerospace Corporation approached me with an offer for a internship, a program is normally reserved for upper college and graduate students. Although I will not be having the same kind of fun as in robotics, it excites me that I will have to opportunity to contribute to some really amazing and cutting-edge projects there.

I am not even out of high school, and my foot is already in the door of my dream job. And FIRST got me there.

Re: Dream Job

My dream job would be to work for NASA and help the next generation of robots reach the moon or Mars. (LINK). I think it would be awesome because there are FIRST teams at almost every NASA branch that has to do with robotics. After observing a meeting, I realized that building robots is not all fun and games and that much more thought goes into it compared to the FIRST Robotics Competition, especially if you want your robot to go somewhere and not just be a prototype.

Dreams come and go, but once life throws a football you have to think fast.

Pavan.

Re: Dream Job

I'm from Lower Merion, PA (right outside of Philadelphia), alum of Team 1712.
My goal in life (which I'm pretty close to) is to work for Cirque Du Soleil and some major NY theatrical shows as a Technical Director. Sadly though, I cant really say that FIRST has helped me with any of these. I know that my expertise in construction/materials and troubleshooting has helped my team, but I haven't really learnt anything that could be applied to my trade.

Re: Dream Job

Im from Ann Arbor, MI, Alum of 1015

My goal in life is to have a job that I have fun doing. I would like to work in a small team of people who contract out work for designing mobile robots for many various tasks. Military, space, or consumer - as long as they are new jobs, and not doing something that has been done before (I dont want to make the same thing over and over). I specificaly want it to be a small interactive group that i really enjoy doing work with..

I will find/make that job some day...

A job that i know is out there: working for NASA or the military designing robots.
