A Very Civil Career
Not too long ago a friend of mine told me that her son had switched his college major. I asked her what he switched to and she told me that he wanted to be a civil engineer. Apparently, this is a very good field to go into and that starting salaries and job opportunities are very good. I wondered about this because it is not a field I ever really thought of before, but I got curious so I did a little research. It turns out that there are firms that will recruit civil engineers to work in some of the most prestigious engineering firms. One such firm which handles Civil Engineer jobs is called CSI, which made me think of the popular television show, but this firm apparently works very hard, making over 25,000 phone calls in a month's time to recruit some of the hottest prospects in the civil engineering community. Apparently, the don't just search through old resumes to help fulfill their client's needs because they do represent some of the top civil engineering firms, not just regionally, but internationally. They have over 30 years experience in this field with a president who has 20 years of civil engineering recruiting experience. It's amazing to me that someone so young would already know what they want to do with the rest of their life, but really encouraging to know that they will be entering such a wonderful career.
