My advice would be to get comfortable with the idea of that you may not always know the answers and develops the skills / confidence that you can figure it out in a team environment. As an engineer, you may find yourself thrown into situation that may not be part of your training or your area of expertise. Understanding your own limitation and having the ability to work with a team to figure things out will serve you well. Along this same line, never stop learning.
