    I am a Jamaican Professional Engineer (Civil/Structural) of thirty-five years of experience which include corporate management, water resource facilities management, principal of an engineering consultancy offering services of structural and infrastructure designs, project management  and construction management. I am preparing for the USA P.E. license application and exams.<o:p></o:p>

    I have been an active member of the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) since 2009 and the technical, management and ethical standards of my professional practice has been developed and guided in large part by the educational services and body of knowledge of these institutions. <o:p></o:p>

    What is your assessment of my prospects for employment and level of duties before and after a USA P. E. License, in government and in private employment and what benefits might be expected or asked for?<o:p></o:p>

    Thank you for the opportunity to ask these questions.
