During the second semester of my senior year in undergrad, I was absolutely focused on finding a job. A graduate degree, at the time, seemed unnecessary as I was set on joining industry. I also knew academic research was definitely not for me. As someone who discovered her niche in electrical engineering late in undergrad, there were some graduate classes I wished I had space for during my senior year, but delaying my entry into industry for a few programming classes did not seem to be worth the time. I threw myself into applying for jobs, near and far, and for some of them, I got called in to interview. It was during one interview early on that I realized my engineering education might not be complete, and that I might not be the engineer I wanted to be, yet.
