    Anyone Own a Civil Engineering Company?

    So here's the deal, I'm graduating from Clemson University in SC in a week. However, I do not have a job lined up. I thought I did (was called in for a second interview), but I wasn't chosen. Unfortunately, I haven't found anyone around here that's hiring. A few years ago, I'd have no problems, but the current state of things are killing me. Basically, I'm just wondering if anyone works at or owns any type of civil engineering company in or around the SC upstate and is hiring. If so, I'm your man!

    I'd probably be more helpful if you were looking to go to grad school rather than looking for a real job. As has been said, being willing to relocate will definitely expand your possibilities.

    Just curious, what specialty within Civil?

    Yeah, I have several friends going to grad school. It's not really a good time to graduate. I would consider grad school, if it didn't cost money. I am willing to relocate, but I'd prefer to stay around here.

    Oh, and I have an emphasis in construction.

    Relocating is probably the way to go. I have a uncle (electrical eng) and a cousin in law (mechanical eng) they have relocted several times, each tme they have been head hunted. They both are living large. If you need sometihng in the meantime you might check into pipe design, my cousin in law said there is a shortage there. He said no degree 60K a year 90K if you work overtime. My uncle was sent to Canmaroon, Africa (not sure if that's spelled right) he made enough money after 3 years to move to Las Vegas, buy a 800K house and take a three year golf vacation.
