Everyday is a new one. I work with a man named Peter. He's a pleasure to work with, positive attitude, knows what he's talking about, and a mechanical Engineer since the 70's. I just found this out, he's only working here because he's going to his daughters college graduation in Europe, so is filling the time between jobs. Well, I'm aspiring to be in the same trade as him so I felt the time was oppurtune to probe his mind on that particular industry. Long story short he told me as a mechanical engineer it is tough. If you are working for Boeing and they don't get that Gov contract...kiss your job goodbye. He did however mention that his wife who is a civil engineer has held a steady job for years. Peter told me that the civil engineering world is where it's at. So I have been thinking of this all night. Civil engineering? What do you think?
