Default Who's hiring?

Hey guys!

Hope things have been well. Crazy to believe I'll be graduating this coming year with a B.S. in Civil Engineering and a concentration in structural engineering! Thought I'd reach out to some "seasoned" fellow Net54ers to see what platforms you have used to search for jobs? Thanks guys.

Best regards,
Joshua W. (Wazoo)

If you are interested in Civil Service, the Federal Government is always hiring. You can go to USA Jobs (https://www.usajobs.gov) to search. Just make sure you filter on "Open to the Public". A quick search of just "Engineer" shows 382 jobs open to the public around the county and even some overseas. With your education, I'm thinking the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers could be a good fit. Good Luck!

Congrats Waz,

Same degree as me, several years later. My daughter is graduating next Spring as well. Chemical Engineering.

Our company was searching this past spring. Our recruiter posted on Zip Recruiter, LinkedIn, and facebook. I have also hired several people over the years through Indeed.

You definitely need to create a cover letter and update your LinkedIn page.

Of all the resumes I've reviewed over the years, only ONE had a cover letter. That was thru Indeed. She really did her homework on our company as well. We offered that person a job the day she interviewed.

Anyway, enjoy your last couple of semesters and good luck with your job search!

Surely some of your instructors or career counselors at your school have some excellent connections.....

Craigslist and Indeed are, in my experience, the best places to find work. If you're willing to fill the time between finding your dream job, it's always good to reach out to temp agencies for work. I've wound up in several great long-term positions that began as temp assignments.

Well I'm going to take my FE in the Spring and plan on obtaining my EIT if all goes well. Then I'll need to get my required years (4?) before I go for that. Eventually that's the plan to have my own consulting firm. Would be a lot of fun at some point!

Tony,

Thanks for the response. I agree these are some very good places to start. I'm forming a nicely worded cover letter that's straight to the point. I feel like it goes hand in hand with a resume, crazy to think that so many people forget it.

Anyways, congrats to your daughter! Hope things have been well with you.

Joshua
