  1. I would like to explain it, in short, a suggestion for this post is really welcome I want to know more things about this topic. Few points that I think matter to highway construction, planning stays the most imperative piece of the process of engineering construction, independent of the nature and kind of construction. Planning tasks are trailed by design tasks and once designs are finished, execution works begin. Planning helps in the estimation of dangers, capacity estimation, and it empowers engineers to leave scope for any future change or extension of roads or bridges. Planning is imperative in light of the fact that worldwide populace is expanding at an exponential rate; globalization and technological progressions have made things less demanding for individuals, however trying for engineers.
  2. I'm just starting out on my journey to pass the PE exam. I have a BSCE and MBA and I'm a project manager with a construction management firm and I've already acquired my PMP. I'm working on getting my Certified Construction Manager (CCM) credential this year and at the end of the summer, start to seriously study for the PE exam. I've been fortunate enough over the past two days to buy the CE Construction Bundle from someone who just passed the April exam and inherit some great breadth practice exams. I'm shooting for October 2018 due to balancing career priorities with my husband.
  3. Moving to the Business Side

    This seemed like the best sub to ask for career advice. If I'm wrong, I apologize! I majored in engineering because I liked problem solving, learning how things work, and unique challenges. In the working world I come across new challenges occasionally, however, even after a couple of workplace changes, working as an engineer just isn't fulfilling to me anymore. Because of that, I don't see my career progressing much further without any real passion. Business seems to be my natural path. I'm planning on going back for an MBA and changing careers to something totally different. I'm skilled in programming, Excel, making presentations, and utilizing big data (ArcGIS). I love to imagine myself at the executive level at some water company or consulting company, making big decisions and increasing profits. My questions: 1) Has anyone from this board made a similar move? Is the grass greener? 2) How rare would it be to find a position that would require/utilize both CE and business knowledge? I don't exactly want my degree and PE to go to waste either.

  6. So today I got a job offer from a company. (I posted about going through a tough time with my boss a few weeks ago on this thread). The job offer is providing approximately $7000 more than what I currently make (I graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering May 2015 and got a job before graduating, so if I take this new job, this would be my second job since graduating college. Frankly, I was quite put down in the current company I am in. My most recent manager but my down and scolded my work a lot which really has effected me mentally and emotionally (I got changed managers last week thank god, I didn't say anything though that caused the change). I just don't feel the motivation to learn here anymore and I feel I need a change to bring back energy in my career. What I currently do is land development and I have always liked roadway design and this opportunity gives me that. So that is why I am thinking of switching. I feel salary wise as well it would be beneficial for my family. What are your thoughts? So here are some of my questions/concerns on how to resign since I am doing this for the first time professionally: 1) The person I need to inform, Eric(president of the company) of my resignation won't return to the office until Monday. The offer I got from the company said they need to fill the position ASAP and would like to know my decision by the end of this week. Should I email Eric and let him know about my resignation and put in my two weeks notice? or should I wait to inform/talk to him in person on Monday morning when he returns? 2) If I put my resignation in on Monday morning in person (Monday May 9), would the two weeks notice be applicable until the end of the working day on Friday May 20 (i.e. 14 business days). 3) The offer letter I got from the new company says that my offer is contingent on a drug test. Should I take the drug test and when they receive the successful results, then give my resignation notice? or should I give my resignation notice after I have signed and send my acceptance to the new company? (FYI, I don't do drugs, alcohol, smoke etc so I am confident nothing should come up in the drug test but I am still exercising caution about this drug test. I would appreciate any advice anyone has regarding my situation. I just want to go about it professionally and in a kind manner and would like to hear what others think about this opportunity. I learned a lot from my current company and just want to be professional about it. Thanks everyone.
  7. HI, So I am going through some issues at work. I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on what to do. Here's my story (i'll try my best to keep it short). So i graduated with a B.S. in Civil Engineering in May 2015. I got a job offer before my senior year ended in Site Development Engineering (I didn't have any experience in this field, I interned with a Village in college so I had some construction experience). so I was hired as a designer. So when I was hired and the guy that interviewed me (l'll refer to him as Bob) seemed to like me and he was my type of mentor I was thinking to have to grow in my career as a Civil Engineer. His explanations were clear, he drew out a lot of the concepts which helped me a ton in understanding concepts, and he was friendly towards me. So after about 4 months he resigned and took a job elsewhere. So I was put with a new another boss in our company (I'll refer to him as Ron). So slowly he started to give me more workload. He had high expectations for me and still does. It seems to me he expects everything to be perfect and I can draw up plans like an expert. I don't have much experience and I am still learning things. There are a lot of things I don't understand by the way he explains them (I'm a visual learner). Whenever I go to him with work I have completed he always says things like "I explained this earlier", "I don't like to repeat myself", "you should know how to do this", etc etc. I spend like 1 hour in his office and he goes through a million things and expects me to have them down immediately. But there is only so much I can remember. I can't grasp everything he says. I tell him I am trying my best and trying to write down everything your saying and remembering everything you say but it's hard for me Basically his response is try harder because I don't have time to go back and forth. I understand he can't repeat everything and it does waste time. But I can't grasp and understand everything in one shot either I was and still am trying to work the way he works and understand concepts. But recently I just can't take it anymore because this is an everyday thing. I am afraid to go to his office because everytime I go in he always has to critique about my work ethic etc. He keeps says I make excuses. I am seriously trying my best, I am one of the first people in the office in the morning and one of the last ones out. I am giving all that I can give. I am strongly thinking after what I have gone through today to go talk to the President of the company to move me to another group and another supervisor. I am so tensed and stressed by his remarks. I always just stay quiet or say that I need some time and I am learning but he always just says I don't have that much time etc etc. Can someone please help me on what to do? I can't sleep at night, I am grumpy all day, not happy at all with my life. I keep trying harder and harder, staying later and later (working 50+ hour weeks) and I feel I am a failure or I am in the wrong place. I don't like even going to work anymore because I know I am going to hear something from my boss about me. I appreciate anyones advice and understanding about my issue. This is my first job out of college

  10. Hello all!! I hope you're having a good so far. I am a recent civil engineering grad and I would like go into the project management route, rather doing engineering calculations. Why? Because I held a part time job at a small private firm for about 3 months, I was out on the field almost almost half of the week and I loved it. I really enjoy seeing how the project comes together, perhaps even more than designing.. Just from top of my head, I have a few questions that I'd like to ask. 1. Do I need to get my masters? If so in what? Structural/MBA/Project Management? I'm not sure what I should study or if I even need to study. I feel like getting my masters would be the next step but I'm not sure in what. 2. Are you a project manager yourself? if so why did you choose project management? 3. Anything else you'd like to add =] Thank you.
  11. Hi everyone, I just recently graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering. I'm kinda just chillin' at the moment but I'll be job searching in the near future. That said, I'd like to get my resume and cover letter polished before I start applying anywhere and everywhere. So established EngineerBoards community, if you have time, can you please help me look over these two essential pieces? Truthfully, I understand that while much of it especially the cover letter can be quite lengthy and wordy, I would just like to know your take on where/how to cut down everything. From the objective to the opening statements to the bullet points to pretty much anything and everything, let me know which parts are good, which parts are totally unnecessary, tacky, over-the-top, and essentially what I can and should do to make it even better. I am all ears and would greatly appreciate any constructive criticism and feedback as I take the next step towards my career. Thank you all so much for your time and help with this. Gratefully, frogger P.S. I've used some placeholders to protect my confidentiality. Cover Letter.pdf Resume.pdf
