Thanks so much, Ben. I ended up filling my work experience form out exactly as Mr. Pillow stated, but still wondered if I was doing it right. My mind is at ease now.

I'm glad it helped.

I really need to crank through this paperwork and get it out by the end of the week!

It took me half the day Monday, most of yesterday and a couple hours today to get everything done. Thankfully workload is light this time of year for me.

I just sent emails to everyone at my last job, and dropped off my form for someone at my first job. Is there anything more awkward then writing an email to your boss, who you just quit on (less than 3 weeks ago), and asking him to fill out the verification form? UGH....

oh well...

I can see how that would be a little..... awkward!

It's frustrating to put 'detail' in (as requested) when they only give to two lines on your Work Experience Report.

Yep, that was tough, trying to condense eveything I do into a few statements that comply with their categories and have it still make sense.

But, I finally got it done and dropped my app in the mail today. None of my references have gone out yet, but thankfully they all all work in my office so I can keep tabs on them.

I've been crafting my thoughts on the computer for each one.

I think I'll look them all through tonight and finish the forms tomorrow. With any luck I'll get the envelopes all addressed/stamped and get the whole mess out by Saturday AM.......

That will be a relief!

I typed a lot of my application in Word, printed them out with my font size set to about 6, and taped them to the application. That's "cut and paste" in the truest sense of the phrase. It allowed me to get more words into each box and I figured I wanted to keep a copy anyway. So I kept the mock-up and sent the copy. It looked pretty smooth when it was all done.

Regarding a topic touched on earlier in the thread - a friend of mine (who has gathered enough references to be licensed in about 25 states) confirmed that each reference sheet should be accompanied by an SASE. Too bad he didn't tell me that BEFORE my sheets were distributed.

As of today: Everything is sent out with SASE included.

I guess now I just get to sit and wait again!

how detailed did people get in their listings of what jobs they worked on, etc?

My experience is automotive OEM, so it may not apply to your situation, but I wanted to hit all of the disciplines (planning, design, consultation, investigation, evaluation, and repair); here is a sample:

- Investigated potential field problems relating to materials (urethanes, polymer body panels), electrical (relays), safety components (seat belts) and driveline components (AWD systems);

- Evaluated the frequency and severity of field issues and presented information to leadership for consideration of field action. Some of these investigations resulted in field actions such as Customer Satisfaction or Safety Recalls, some did not;

- Planned and Designed field fixes to repair problems identified (with the Design Release and Service organizations). Consulted with Design & Release groups to ensure that lessons learned from previous product investigations were incorporated into the best practices for future designs.

(I also included my design and release experience with airbags and steering wheels in a separate entry.)

Thanks - that helps give me an idea at least... I'm mainly HVAC, so to list the number of projects i've worked on would be a little ridiculous.

I have confirmation that all my references have been returned except the one from my boss. It's just sitting on his desk. I go in there every couple days and hint around about how much I appreciate him making the time to complete the form. I'd like to try the "hard sell" but he's my boss.

I must have passed the "Writing a Check" part of the application process.

They cashed it late last week! :)

They cashed my check shortly after I sent it a couple weeks ago. The links for "Check a License" and "Forms and Publications" are not working (timing out) on michigan.gov/engineers, maybe they are updating the database - fingers crossed!

11:30am EST Update:

I just tried "Check a License" and was 0-for-2 (mine and a guy I know who passed in April). I have a feeling he'll get a number before I do because my application for FE confirmation was initially returned from the FL board.

Congrats again to you all and good luck with the forms

ps took me about 8 weeks to get my number

Did you receive the wallet certificate in the mail first, or were you included in the "check a license" link on the website first? (It's been 4 weeks since they cashed my $75 check and counting.)

Nothing yet! Do we have to get our seals through Impact Solutions, or is anyone considering using Engineerseals.com?

Any news anyone? I have been looking for my name on the website, and I dont have anything yet...

Either way, I'll be waiting a little longer. I found out that my Boss had not sent in my paperwork yet. That's ok, he's only had it 3 or 4 weeks. I leaned on him a little bit and it's in the mail now!

I now officially sit and wait.

This is what i'm afraid of... I'm relying on people from my last job (that I left only 2 months ago) to turn in paperwork. I have no idea if it has been or not, and dont want to bug them about it. I wish there was a way to check and see what, if any, has been turned in. (without asking each person I mean)

I noticed this on the Georgia Results page. We do not have any "photo" or "notarized application" requirements in Michigan, right??? Also, on the Michigan.gov/engineers FAQ it indicates that "pending" should appear in the "verify a license" look-up (actually the link is "find a license" on the website) once the application is complete/approved. Anybody see this yet? Of course it also says that incomplete work-experience forms will be returned. It's 5.5 weeks and counting for me since they cashed my $75 check --- I can't call until 6 weeks have past. Were we only supposed to send the $35 application fee initially?

Alright, I'm looking at my Professional Licensing Application Status on the Georgia Secretary of State website and this is what I get

Board Review

Pending

Application Specialist Review

Completed 6/18/2007

EIT Waiver Fee

Not Applicable 6/18/2007

Verif of EIT Exam/Certification

Approval/Denial Letter Sent

Pending

Experience Endorsements

App - All Questions Answered

Reapply - Addt'l 12 Semester Hrs

Not Applicable 6/18/2007

Application Signed and Notarized

Completed 6/18/2007

Exam Scores Received from Test Administrator

Pending

Official College Transcripts

Completed 6/18/2007

Photo

Completed 6/18/2007

Application Fee

Completed 6/1/2007

so my question is... do I pay for my PE now or do I need for the Approval/Denial Letter?

Thanks!

Make that the "Georgia Registraion Q" page, not the "Georgia Results" page.

Sorry I don't have more answers for you. But I can tell you that neither me nor my friend have been licensed yet, according to the website. :(

We each applied for license and had references returned within a week of getting our results.
