(The Engineering Place)
Why do I want this job
Who or what inspired you to major in architecture/ engineering and how old were you?
Looked up different job descriptions to figure out
Wanted to work outdoors
Uncle was Civil Engineer
Started initially thinking about field of study around the age of 16
Wasn't sure if he made the right choice by doing engineering, so he started an architectural landscaping program
Couldn't decide between the two, so he continued to study, and eventually majored in both after 6.5 years
Did you ever work as an intern?
Worked as an intern for several years during college
Was an intern in both of his fields of study
Thinks its a very good idea, and great thing to put on resume.
Out of college, was it hard to find a job
Took a couple months to find a job
Thought it could have been because of the economy at that time
The internships that he had didn't turn into jobs
Did you have a lot of student loans to pay off?
Had no student loans because parents paid for most of the schooling
