What is the hardest part to being a structural engineer?

Asked Henderson, Nevada

I am going into civil engineering for college next year, and I hope to focus on structural engineering. I honestly have no idea of the difficulties involved in the career, but I enjoy seeing how building and structures deal with live load and dead load. #civil-engineering #structural-engineering

Hi Calvert,

In my personal experience, the hardest part to being a structural engineer is to find the first full time position. If you are hired, it means your degrees are qualify and you are potential to become a good structural engineer. Once you nail the full time job, you need to continue update your skills and willing to continue learning new knowledge of structural technical skills because you will need to stay on top of your game.
