I think it's important to find a position in a firm where your boss is also
willing to be your mentor. The quality of your workplace/environment will
greatly influence you and your outlook on engineering. I felt the same way
when i first started out. But i eventually found someone who was willing to
show me the ropes and now i enjoy it.
I'd suggest that if you're not happy at your current place of employment
maybe it's time to move on.
