I have been curious about what are some of the optimal career paths Industrial Engineers take post graduation and which companies have provided the best offers? Some fields I have been particularly wondering about are consulting, data science, and project management. If anyone has specific examples about internships or full time offers, definitely let me know your journey!
Mine is definitely not the normal course of an industrial engineer, but I will be doing institutional sales and trading for a bank. Most of their applicants are business majors so you definitely stand out as an engineer and they have lower gpa standards for engineers. It’s an interesting career path that you don’t need a finance background to succeed in! I think that finance, consulting, project management, and even sales can be great starting career paths for industrial engineers!
