  2. So i just passed my PE Exam in the state of FL in Oct, 2018. I currently work in the Power Industry designing power poles. Back when I graduated from college in 2011 (BS in Civil), the job market was in the tankers and continued till about 2015-16. This whole time i've kept my current job and now became a Project Manger overseeing the office i work in. HOWEVER, i really want to get back into Civil (Specifically in Water or Environmental). Is it to late for me to switch? Since I have a PE will any company want to hire me on as Entry Level? Anyone else in the same situation? PS - I'm willing to take a bit of a pay cut in the beginning, but hope to make some decent money later in my career after i've proven myself. Thanks for the replies in advance!

  5. Hello, My name is Sam. I posted a while ago about giving up my mechanical engineering major. I can gladly say that thing have shifted for better recently. I am a senior, studying mechanical engineering. I just finished a great internship in a company in Kansas City, where I learned so much. I am returning to college this fall in another city (Tulsa, Ok) and I was impressed to see how much I learned this summer. I want to find a new job, so I can get to know new concepts, machines and different fields. In my internship, I worked as Mechanical Engineer Intern where I would draw & model parts in SolidWorks following engineering concepts, then follow those modifications with the manufacturing team. I had a great mentor, that taught me a lot of things. I am moving back to Tulsa, and I am not sure the best approach to find a new opportunity. I need a part-time/co-op job up to 20hr/week while I am taking classes in college. I was thinking of looking for companies involved in manufacturing, where they may need a Design Engineer. I have applied online to a few of them, but most of them are looking for full-time positions which is not what I am looking for right know. I did try to reach a couple friend who graduated, but none of them had any opportunity they knew of. 1. Would it be a good approach to visit personally some of these companies and ask for the engineering department manager? (What would be good advice on this situation) 2. What other jobs, maybe non-engineering would add more to my experience. I was looking at some other manufacturing positions where I would learn to assemble and learn about materials, but I am not sure which one to apply for. Thank you for your advice!

  7. Hello. I graduated engineering in 2014 outside the US. Mechatronics Engineering (major is Electrical and Computer). I had a 2-month internship in 2013 and that's the extent to my engineering experience. I moved to the US shorty after. I accredited my degree, passed the FE exam, obtained my EIT certificate and recently passed the PE Mechanical Systems and Materials test. I have been doing food jobs during this period and still. I also tutored college-level subjects for a short while. I am in Texas. They now allow the partaking of the PE test before the experience requirement. I also know SQL, few web frameworks (Rails, node.js and others), html...etc. Not at all bad at coding is what I am getting at. Do I stand a chance at employment or an internship at least? Or should I not bother and just go get a master's degree that I don't need? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  14. 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.
  15. Hello engineerboards community, So it's been a while of job searching and I still haven't been able to land many interviews let alone a job. I managed to get one phone screen interview but there wasn't much of a follow-up so I figured it's a goner. I'm looking for an entry-level transportation/transit/traffic engineer position but don't have any relevant experience in the field. (Cover letter and resume: Anyway, lately, I've been thinking of just going back to school for a Master's Degree in Transportation Engineering. Ideally, I'd want to just get a job and get some experience under my belt instead of going for the Master's. However, it just seems like it's not happening right now so I want to make the most out of my time and thought pursuing the Master's would be worthwhile. Also, if I don't get enough experience by then, the PE license will eventually require Master's degrees so there's that. That being said, any of you that have experience or insight on this, can you shed some light please? Does it help or hurt to get a Master's degree without any relevant/internship experience? That is, will it help or hurt my chances of landing an entry-level position? What do you think are my best options right now? Should I just keep job searching or go for the Master's? Should I "settle" for internships? I've been considering this as well but can barely find anything either. Also, in my job searching approach, I was thinking of calling some of the local smaller (transportation) engineering firms around my area and seeing if they had any positions since my email inquiries haven't gotten me anywhere. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!!
  16. I am senior ME student in my last year as an undergrad. I am located in central Florida I am hooping to get an internship this summer but have not had any luck thus far, all I have to show on my resume is research that I currently do at the university and work in the hospitality industry. My cumulative GPA is 2.7 and from conferences and career fairs I have attended all companies turn me down because of my GPA. What company can I look for that will give me the opportunity?? what am I supposed to do? I was initially scheduled to graduate in May but after attending a conference in October I found out that companies don't want recent grads without any experience in industry (internships, co-ops); I had three interviews but no offers. That's why I decided to postpone graduation but I still can't get an internship with my GPA, worse case scenario I don't get an internship this summer, I graduate and then I can find full-time employment. I am a very frustrated and close to a depressive state. I made terrible mistakes with my grades when I first started college, I can't do nothing about the past, I'm can only work to make a better future for me and my family. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading
  17. Hi, Wanted to get some advice from some more experienced and smarter people than me. Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. I am going to give a little back story first to put my situation in better context. Here is my situation… After getting my BS in Computer Engineering I went to work for an Electric Utility/Cable/ISP/Telephone company (They did fiber to the home) right out of college. Worked there for 5 years and went back to school to get my masters. During my last semester of my masters some people I previously worked with offered me a job. I took it but did not like it because there was too much travel. I called up another guy I used to work with and pitched him an idea of adding to his software. He was all for it and hired me on. When I resigned my traveling job my boss and everyone I worked with threw a fit and thought the other guy was trying to steal me (not the case at all). Anyway it all worked out in the end and I have been working for this guy for a year now. After about six months into my current job I realized the best job that I should have taken was at another local Electric Utility that I worked for as a summer intern while getting my Master’s Degree. They said I could work for them full time when I was done with school but I ended up taking the traveling job instead (it just paid so damn much). Anyway the General Manger at this utility ended up calling me up one day out of the blue and asked me to come work for him (this was after I already told myself that’s where I should have worked, so I was very happy). I said I did not want to leave my current boss hanging on the project I was on but maybe at the end of the year 2011 we could work something out. He agreed but asked if I would help as a consultant (I am a registered P.E. so I felt comfortable doing that) until the end of the year. They are getting ready to put in some Fiber and networking equipment and wanted my experience. So now it’s the end of the year, I have talked with the GM of the new company and the Fiber project will basically start the first of the summer so he is looking for me to start sometime before then. My question is how should I go about telling my current boss I am leaving? I am 100% certain this new job is the right fit for me (The people, the work, the work load, longevity, etc). I guess I am a little gun shy because of how badly resigning from my traveling job went. Also the project I am working on for my current employer is not complete. In reality I probably bit of more than I can chew with my current job. Plus the fact that all my employers are basically in the same industry (some customers others suppliers) and I might cross paths with my current boss and previous bosses again. My plan is to tell my current boss that we should redo how we are working on the project to pull in more people. I have a meeting with my prospective future boss tomorrow to discuss a timeframe of when I can start. Then maybe in a week or 2 give my current boss my resignation but say I can stay on for another 2-3 months. I am not going to tell my current boss what company I am going to in order to avoid some of the problems I had last time I resigned. I am also going to offer that I will help out with any questions that someone taking over for me might have in the future (Via email/phone). I figure he will ask why I am leaving. I was thinking that I would tell him the new opportunity is a great opportunity for me and my family both financially and stability wise (which is true, I plan on retiring from this future job). I was also thinking about telling him I feel like I am in over my head in what I am doing anyway and think it is better for both of us if someone with more experience stepped in and took over anyway (which is also true). BTW my current job is building a billing system for utilities. They currently bill cable, TV, internet with a separate system built on COBAL and want to move away from that to a more modern platform (which is where I came into the picture). Anyway sorry for the life story but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I put myself in this situation and feel extremely thankful that I can get out of it and land a great job. I just want to make sure I do it in the best possible way and not burn any bridges in the process.
