I briefly covered this in my “about me” section, but here is an “about me” in a little more detail!
My name is Warren Wigh, and I am 26 years old. In June I graduated from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona with a Bachelors of Architecture. Upon graduating I was hired on full time with a company called Jacobs, which is an international company specializing in engineering, architecture, and construction management. (They also specialize in petrochemicals, mining, pharmaceuticals, technology, environmental health, anyway, the list goes on) I have worked for Jacobs for going on 4 years now, starting as an intern in 2012.
I started interning with Jacobs while I was in school, initially just as a summer internship. I quickly realized that this was the kind of company I wanted to work for, and I pressed to be extended through the school year. I worked during my 5th year of college (Architecture is a 5 year program) and worked while I was completing my thesis. On average I was working 20-30 hours a week. This was helpful in terms of money, but I wouldn’t do it again- it was far too stressful.
While I graduated with my degree in Architecture, I am currently pursuing construction management as a career. I feel that it suits me better, and I enjoy the unique challenges it brings. Plus, this way I can tell Architects what to do. 😛
In terms of my personal life, I have one brother and one sister, both older than me.
I also have parents.
That’s about it!
