So I’m a geotechnical engineer, and I’ve been working for around six years now. I spend a lot of time in the field (ie. not the office!) and a lot of time on technical work. The next step for me is taking on a more senior role in leading my team and company direction. You’re always learning in STEM careers, but once you’ve learnt the “basics” you usually take on more of the business side of your job as well.
