Engineers, are you ready to shake things up? We know that the economy lately has been, well, unforgiving. But we still believe that you can—and should—find jobs you adore. This year, we met 10 engineers whose abrupt turns and occasional missteps led them to question their deepest desires, right the course, and find the jobs that are best for them.
