  2. 2. IDEAS - People – Ask what and why – Talk to family and friends – Ask professionals over the website communities – Talk to academia people – Contact headhunters in this area – Stand in front of the big civil engineering company and had off flyers with question and contact info – Ask company about internal moves – Talk to University alumni
  3. 3. IDEAS - Firms • Ask companies about possibility of moves form one to another company • Ask government companies about position they have • Look at Unified School district positions • Find private civil engineering companies and ask them • Find civil engineers retired people who could share a wealth of positions they been through • Ask big international companies for intern jobs • Ask a professional from your field to join you for lunch • Find a favorite hang out place, Friday nights, of people from the company you would like to get in . Get there with a couple of friends, approach someone form the company have a chat.
