Danielle,  Thanks for sharing this. When I moved to Colorado I was "forced" to become more sustainable. For example, plastic bags at supermarkets are not allowed in Boulder county so we had to get reusable bags. We started doing more recycling at home and I got myself a nice coffee mug that I use everywhere ...

In my short career, I have always felt very supported by my peers, both emotionally and technically. From allowing me to take a few days off after a family problem to help me be prepared for my PE. There is something to be said about that kind of support in your life and work. Another example I can think ...

Saying no is often really hard. But I think it is sometimes one of the most freeing words in the English language. As we say no, we are taking control of what is important to us. There comes a point in our lives when we are so busy we cannot take another project, another task, another activity, but we ...

I have had this topic in my mind for a little bit now. I aim to be a leader in our profession, I want to lead by example and not by simply saying I want to lead. I came across this interesting article I wanted to share it with all of you. The article is entitled 7 Ways to Boost Your Self-Confidence and ...

Abu,  Don't be discouraged by this. I came to the US in 2012 to study civil engineering and did not find a job in that field until I graduated with my masters in 2018. I was unable to find any civil engineering job while in school so I had to take a lot of part-time side jobs like maintenance, custodial, ...

Kelly,  Not so new father, he is about 18 months. Surprisingly he is such a great sleeper (about 12 hours every day) but he is awake he is a little speedster running around and playing all day long. I agree that spending time with him is valuable and I try to be home by 5:30 at the latest to have family ...

There is no easy way to accept you are burning out at work. We live in a very fast-paced industry where everything needs to be done by yesterday. There is no time to take a breath or even realize you are burnout. This is how I have been feeling for the last two weeks. I have worked almost 50+ hours per ...

I have been feeling overwhelmed at work lately and it has greatly affected my morning routine, making me more tired and stressed during the day.  I think morning routines are important to maintain order in our lives as engineers. Here is what morning routine looks like (ideally!)  4:45 am - Wake up ...

I believe this should be one of the most important things we do in our professional career. Giving back all the knowledge in one way or another has been one of my biggest priorities in my short professional career. I have been involved with Engineers Without Borders for over five years now and have work ...

This past summer I have been going to construction sites more often for several of the projects I have worked on. One project, in particular, has been challenging for several reasons. The project is a high-end custom residential structure with multiple structural and construction challenges. The contractor ...

This time of the year is when most schools have job fairs and students are getting prepared for them. I know I attended these job fairs since my freshman year to get experience and get comfortable speaking with employers. These events are great to get to know companies in your area and learn what they ...

As a 3-time attendee and recipient of the scholarship for young professionals this year I can say this conference is the best opportunity for structural engineers to network and stay up to date on whats going on with the profession. I am also part of the Student Initiatives committee and we have worked ...

Sandra, This is a really common situation. I went through this during college. I am now a structural engineer but did not have any structural engineering experience until I graduated with my master's degree. I actually just wrote a member voice about my transition from student to engineer, you can find ...

Danielle,  Thanks for starting this thread! I am a firm believer that networking is as important or more than having solid technical skills. Personally, I started to attend career fairs at my school since my freshman year. That allowed me to get to know companies in the area even if I was not ready to ...

Over the years, I have been frequently asked if it was hard to come to the United States as an international student and if there were a lot of differences between my life back home and the culture in the U.S. Naturally, the answer to those questions is a resounding “Yes!” First, let me introduce myself. ...

Danielle,  This is a great topic, especially for busy engineers like all of us. I personally take the walking approach when I am stressed. Also, we recently got a pull-up bar and some dumbbells to do some exercise at the office. Something that works great for me is to listen to calm music from Colombia ...
