We may be!

Where are you granulating from?

Where are you interested geographically?

I am the VP for NY Operations for a NJ based consulting engineering firm specializing in transportation. I'm a PE with 38 years of bridge design experience, having worked on everything from shortspan timber bridges to the Brooklyn Bridge. I have sat atop the Queensboro Bridge, and been down in the anchorage of the Manhattan Bridge. Almost 4 decades and I still get excited every time I round the bend on the Belt Parkway and get my first glimpse of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, remembering when it was being built in the early '60s, and now involved in the rehabilitation work on it.

In NYC we're 2 blocks from Penn Station; in NJ near Trenton; in PA in Harrisburg, and the LeHigh Valley area; and we just opened an office in Springfield IL.

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

Make sure you adapt your cover letter for each position. Demonstrating that you have looked into the company is a VERY strong hiring point and an amazing amount of people fail to take advantage of it. The cover letter is a great place to comment on a project the company has undertaken, an award they've won or an article that's been written about them.

I could not agree more...one of the most valuable pieces of advice I've taken in so far...

Default Wishing you good luck!

Also recommend Indeed, Careerbuilder, and LinkedIn for your job search. Make sure to emphasize the experience you gained on projects from your Co-Op and Internships.

Good luck with the FE Exam; it's all stuff that you already know!

Thanks Chris! I appreciate it. I think I need to update my LinkedIn with some photos/drawings of the projects I worked on this summer. Great advice!

Here's another curveball: I was accepted to my schools Master's program. I can get a Master's degree in Civil Engineering or Engineering Management within a year. I am more interested in the technical aspect of engineering, but I feel like the management courses may be more beneficial down the road. Thoughts?

Hi Josh,
Graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering 12 years ago, so my career path is likely different than yours. Started as an Engineer and am now a Plant Manager. I believe that an Engineering Degree prepares one well enough to do just about any job they want to take on. However, I may go back to school to get an MBA if I decide to continue on the corporate path toward a Vice President role.

Think there is more value in a Master's in Management than the Master's in Civil Engineering. The Master's in Civil Engineering may help you become a more knowledgeable engineer, but the Master's in Management will likely provide knowledge that is useful in future leadership roles.
