Jobs in the civil engineering profession
Civil engineering jobs abound both home and abroad provided that the individual in question is suitably qualified. Most of the work opportunities that are reserved for civil engineers have to do with infrastructure.

Among the components of this broad field are highways, waste, process, renewable energy, rail, and water. There are also career opportunities in the fields of both designing, planning; consultants are also required. Job openings with good salary grades are available for persons who have qualified with higher national diplomas or a BSc degree in either Structural Engineering or Civil Engineering. There are also lots of jobs for persons who are higher up in the qualification ladder, specifically those who are aiming to be or already are Chartered or Incorporated engineers. The qualified civil engineer is one who is well skilled in project management in both practical and academic aspects. One should be capable of using software like AutoCAD. There is an inherent need that the individual should possess people skills that will allow him/her to fit in the team.

Renowned references in the field of civil engineering
There are plenty of resources that persons in the field of civil engineering can use to add to their body of knowledge. These resources are in the form of the following media; reference sources, subject headings, journals, databases, web search tools, and internet resources. Reference sources take the form of various dictionaries, glossaries, directories, and handbooks. Databases are used hand in hand with catalogues so as to locate references and text in various conference papers and journal articles.

Databases will either be full-text or citations; sometimes they are a combination of these. Famous databases include the ASCE Civil Engineering Database, the Civil Engineering Subject Corner on Science Direct, and International Civil Engineering Abstracts. The field of civil engineering has also been gifted with a number of authoritative websites that furnish users with the latest online information on various subjects inherent in the field. Famous websites include that of the American Society of Civil Engineers and Engineers Australia. The best web search tools suitable for civil engineers are Google, Google Scholar, and Scirus.

Manuals for the Civil Engineering profession
The field of civil engineering has seen the development of a great many manuals that have been developed through experience in many varied projects. Manuals are published largely for the sole purpose of being able to communicate sound engineering concepts with other engineers from around the globe.

Journals are some of the best ways in which ideas are communicated in Civil Engineering and indeed any other field. This is because the information that is offered in these journals has been peer-reviewed by many astute and competent persons who have made their mark on the subject. Through the latest journals one can be able to appreciate the advances that have been made as time has progressed. There are many pages of new information that are added to the top journals courtesy of the novel research studies that are carried out globally.
