I wanted to create a flow chart that identifies the key differences between engineers and consultants. This is a warning to all students out there, KNOW YOUR FATE. And before you tell me, I know the flow chart is not really and exact flow chart, but just enjoy it? And Happy Friday 13th everyone! πŸ™‚

    I love grocery stores. It could be worse. You could have made a flow-chart for writers that just said “hurt self” in blood.

    There is a small flow chart that comes before the Graduation section.
    1- You first decide to major in CS or CE hoping to become a “Game Programmer” or something like that
    2- You are hit by the reality of the field. You end up discovering there’s no gaming involved…. Just a LOT of math courses, and courses on philosophical aspects of programming (try Software Engineering courses!).
    3- You graduate and
    a- Decide to venture into the real world, try the professional life (this is where we switch back to your flow chart)
    OR b- Decide to take the academic path: try out that Masters program for a couple of year, start taking Prozac because you never seem to finish!
    OR c- Try doing both at the same time! … That doesn’t need description… Just look how I ended!

    You’re telling me all this NOW ?! πŸ˜›

  4. Awesome, I love it. Only question is, how do you land a jib as a consultant?

    What is a consultant anyways?

  8. iRoody says:

    hmm why did you do the chart IF you think it’s unreal and not exact? This attitude makes me wonder…

    • Hmm I think I may have been unclear in what I wrote. What I meant was the diagram is not an actual representation of a flow chart (technically I mean). The content on the other hand is very REAL!

        makes more sense now πŸ˜‰
        Sareen for the one wondering why we chose to be engineers here are some reasons! (Source: http://www3.sympatico.ca/shane.karen/laughs/top_10_reasons_to_date_an_engine.htm)


        10. The world does revolve around us… we chose the coordinate system
        9. No “couple” enjoy a better “moment”
        8. we know how to handle stress and strain in a relationship
        7. we have significant figures
        6. We have taken a course on the motion of rigid bodies
        5. Projectile motion… Need we say more?
        4. Engineers do it to specification
        3. According to Newton, if two bodies interact, their forces are equal and opposite
        2. we know it’s not the length of the vector that counts, but how you apply the force
        1. We know the Right Hand Rule

    HAHA this is a good one! I have to share this one with all of the software developers at work…This is so true! Good thing I’m a copywriter.. haha πŸ˜‰ I often wonder what compels people to want to become software/web developers..Does anyone have the answer for me?

    • Thanks a lot Danielle! To answer your question, we do LOVE programming. The problem is that we have a better future abroad(I don’t mean money-wise, I mean career-wise) than in Lebanon or the Arab world. By the way, love your blog πŸ˜€

    Why didn’t you post this in year 2000! before i did the biggest mistake of my life!

    How did I miss this one!

    As a software developer, with more than 7 years experience, I am not at the existentialism crisis (which I thought it was only happening to me so LOL apparently, it’s so common it has a flow chart)… for me, it’s a coffee shop πŸ˜› haha

    Thanks sareen for the laugh and the support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    oops, I meant to say: I am NOW at the existentialism…
