Top 10 Job Profiles for Civil Engineers

 

Without civil engineers, the development and living infrastructure will come to a standstill. From monuments to today’s irrigation system, civil engineers have contributed a lot to society's reforms, the country's development, and the welfare of human beings. 

 

Thus, “In January 2019, India's construction sector contributed over 2.7 trillion Indian rupees to the country's GDP.” This indicates that there is large availability of civil engineering jobs. A career after civil engineering can be indeed fruitful. This article addresses that particular query by providing you with 20 Job profiles that will clarify the career objective for civil engineer resume.

 

 

1. Civil Engineer Internships 

 

Internships are essential to your journey to become a professional high-paying civil engineer. The internships provide you with hands-on experience with the industry requirements, learn and gather the proper knowledge, and polish your skills. However, the stipend may vary according to the employer and your roles and responsibilities. However, typically the pay scale lies somewhere around ₹1K. An internship is more like a learning process in industry where you get an industrial exposure.

 

 

2. CAD Technicians
