Maybe it's because all engineers I know are working within the private sector in structural engineering in engineering firms, but I've talking about it and I know the starting salary there is a lot higher than 45K. Also, in Hydro-Quebec it's around 60K. I don't know, but all my friends have found a job with no time here, maybe there is less need for new civil engineer where she live ?

Especially since every web sites are saying that there is still a need and the chances of peoples finding jobs is good.

From where she got her degree ?
Concordia. Many of her friends didn't find a job easily either. The ones that did went off the island to get one that pays 50k. On the island she settled for 45k after 3 ish months of looking. Experience and everything. She was in structural engineering option for civil.
