FAQ
1.What is EngineeringShared.com?

EngineeringShared.com is an online community for Engineers. Most importantly, it as a community that truly enables Engineers to share their favourite tools, apps, videos, templates and anything else that helps their daily work. You can ask questions, get answers, vote on answers, apply for jobs…and even use our “Insider” section to learn about what it is like to work at or interview with specific companies.

There’s enough competition in the world. There has to be a time and place to “share” as well.

2.Why is it different from other social sites like LinkedIn, etc?

We love sites like LinkedIn. But we’re frustrated by them too. They are built for everyone, and not everyone has the same needs as Engineers. We need to be able to share documents. We need to share tools, videos, apps and more that are specific to mechanical engineering, or electrical engineering, and so on. That means uploading stuff. That means requesting stuff. That means libraries, and inside views on what it’s like to work as an Engineer at a specific company. EngineeringShared.com is LinkedIn+++. Because…we deserve it!

3.What is the value to me as an Engineer?

Need to develop a new process / template / app? Check here to see if someone has already uploaded a version that you can tailor for your use. Want to demonstrate your credibility to Employers? Engage on the site, build your CredPoints, and then apply for a job. You’ll be listed at the top to your potential Employers. Want to know what it’s like to interview at a certain company? Check “Insider” to see what others have said. Check the articles, review the videos, ask a question, vote on an answer. The Engineering world is here.

4.Can I find new career opportunities here?

You certainly can. Just click on the Jobs section. As EngineeringShared.com is a new community we will be rapidly adding new recruiters all the time, so watch this space. And be sure to let your own HR team know about this opportunity.

5.What are CredPoints?

We love sites like LinkedIn and Facebook, but it’s frustrating that they don’t recognise people who really contribute. If I am going to be an active Member of a community, sharing tools, template, videos, asking and answering questions, then I want this to be recognised by my peers and (very importantly) potential employers.

CredPoints stands for Credibility Points (obviously!). The more you contribute, the higher your score. Most importantly, when candidates apply for a job on this website the ones with the highest CredPoints are listed first and are highlighted as “High Creds”. It’s a great differentiator for you and demonstrates your credibility as a team-playing Engineer to potential employers.

6.Can I upload a tool or template if I don’t own the copyright?

No, please don’t. You’ll get us (and you) in trouble. Please only upload tools or templates that you have developed personally, or that are already in the public domain. BUT…please do upload tools and templates whenever possible. Your fellow Engineers need them and it is a very important part of this community (plus it gets you CredPoints, useful for when you apply for a job).

7.What is the “Request for Tool” about?

Life is difficult enough for us poor Engineers. Surely someone has already developed this tool, template, process, etc that my Boss just dumped on me and told me to have ready by Monday! Just put a shout out to your fellow Engineers and see if someone can help you out. We may even be able to develop it for you ourselves…FOR FREE! You’re welcome.

8.What is “I Wish This Page” about?

EngineeringShared.com is a new community, and it is here for YOU! We have done our best to make it useful and easy to use for Engineers just like you. However, we need YOUR help to keep improving this community and make it the best in the world. When you find a page that you think “Hmm…I wish this page would let me….” please let us know and we will try to make it happen for you.

9.What is “Insider” about?

“Insider” is a great feature, but ultimately its value comes down to Members just like you. You can post or view (ANONYMOUSLY!) comments about what it is like to work at or interview for engineering roles at other companies in your area. Tips on the interview process, company culture, etc. Get the skinny from the “Insiders” before you even apply for a job. Sorted!

10.What Is “Clipping” for?

"Clipping” is similar to bookmarking. It saves your “clippings” to your profile for easy access in the future. We like to make things easy for you
