RE: disappointed engineer

If it's "more money" you want, perhaps you should go into law and thence
into politics.

You won't have any self-respect, but hey, the money's good.

I didn't get into this for the money. I do it because it allows me to do
what I enjoy while helping to support my family.

I have a nice house, a car, food to eat, and wonderful family relationships.
I am rich, not by the world's standards, but my own and God's. That is far
more compelling, to me.

Its the same here in Pakistan.
You are at the start of a long and demanding career that will pay you a
pittance.  When my
nephew graduated in Civil Engineering and joined my firm I advised him to
take admissions in
Business Administration instead of MS (Structural).  He heeded my advice and
is set to make
more money than me.
