You might be wondering what makes a career as a civil engineer in Seguin, TX so attractive. Here are just a few of the benefits associated with work in this field.
Potential for excellent pay
One of the first questions job applicants tend to have is how much they can expect to earn in a given position. Any type of engineering job is going to provide above average pay, and civil engineering is no exception, providing particularly lucrative work even among engineers. The average annual salary for all civil engineers in the United States was $84,140 as of May 2012, according to information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and it has certainly increased since then.
Pay for top-end earners was significantly greater. About 10 percent of all civil engineers make more than $122,000 per year. Those who are self-employed and consult out work of their own have the greatest earning potential, but work with a firm also pays quite well.
Importance in many types of jobs
If you’re looking for work that is important and respected, civil engineering absolutely fits the bill. Civil engineers play key roles in many different types of jobs, providing you with an opportunity to have a positive, appreciated standing in your community.
Plus, civil engineering also presents an opportunity to balance community-mindedness and environmental responsibility with passions you already have for engineering. Many civil engineers help to greatly contribute to infrastructure in communities by designing buildings, roadways, waterways and sewage lines. You can take environmental impact into consideration in these designs to help create more sustainable infrastructure for future residents.
Opportunities to take on challenges
You’ll find soon enough that work as a civil engineer presents plenty of opportunity for you to confront and overcome challenges in the workplace. This means if you have a problem-solving mentality and enjoy being forced to think outside of the box, civil engineering is a career you are likely to enjoy.
It is also a great job for people who thrive in high-pressure environments. In many circumstances, the projects you take on can be quite large in their budget and scope, meaning the stakes get correspondingly larger. You are counted upon to provide reliable engineering to prevent safety issues from occurring. This means it’s very much a chance to obtain some glory, with a little bit of risk if you’re up for the challenge.
Ability to get out of the office
While you will spend some of your time each week in your office planning, you’ll spend lots of time on site communicating with construction workers, analyzing the site and monitoring progress. Expect to be out and about quite a bit while in this position.
