About my BS in Civil, and three separate internships, concentrating mostly on estimating earthwork, railways, utilities, etc.
Think about my job possibilities, but also of getting married shortly. My girlfriend is military, which implies that it's a bit hard to attempt to have a normal profession.
Any advice? Any advice? Do departments have chances to operate 100% remotely? If so, what software should I get to know in the meantime?
If anything positive comes from COVID, we have seen several sectors working remotely. Many engineering companies have been working remotely for years because their projects are dispersed across the board and never ever visit the site. If a company can accomplish tasks from 100 to 1000 km away, you may do the same with a simple estimate.
True, however, I find many firms still want you to work at their offices.
I agree that many firms still like it (I think). Just attempt to say that the choice is possible and exists even if it is restricted. I worked numerous times with a partner business (about 100+ workers) and half of its drawing department worked from home before COVID.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies promoted remote work. Slowly, people have returned to working from the office. Some companies still continue to offer hybrid (partial remote) work. The civil engineering is more of a traditional, old-fashioned profession and slow/reluctant to embrace change (as opposed to say the IT field). Working as a civil engineer usually will involve some type of inherent travel (i.e. field work/support, inspections, meetings w/ clients/vendors, conferences, etc.). So a 100% remote job, while possible, is rare.
