I enjoy all the new problems & industry changes, that we can make a huge difference, and that it is usually quick to see the results of my work.
I didn’t expect my college degree to teach me so little of what I use each day – they are only able to teach the basics and we have to continuously learn new stuff.
I suggest going the extra mile if you only do the minimal coursework you won’t excel. Do more and better than is required and/or side projects to push the boundaries of what you know and practice learning on your own. Get involved in projects, research ideas, and try out new skills.
