Pros: good engineering experience, close to my home.
Cons: healthcare, not enough equipment.
Every day I had to pass through a check point for full Positive ID by military personnel.
Every day I check my e-mails and answer them the best I could, providing the information my clients requests.
I prepare construction estimates, that lead me to use of the internet to find the most accurate price in the market, and to find possible solutions to – more... the engineering problems that I was challenged at the construction sites.
I took a lot of measurements and determine estimate quantities.
I also, prepare drafts drawings in the computer using AutoCAD.
I also prepare and review technical specifications.
I performed Quality Assurance visits to the ongoing construction projects of the office and prepare a report of the findings.
The hardest part of my job was the use of AutoCAD. I am not that fast as a professional drafter can be, and It took long hours to develop and editing a full set of engineering technical drawings.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to take field measurements and to make all necessary calculations to determine estimate quantities, and also the day that I have completed a design package that got approved by the Chief Engineer and the Head Director the Directorate of Public Works. – less
