Jose Rodriguez, Jr. SIT #110053 - Chapter 19 (Rio Grande Valley)
TSPS: How/why did you get into surveying?
Jose: Surveying has always been a crucial element for the civil engineering profession and a prerequisite for many, if not all, civil engineering projects. As such, I’ve been involved with surveying since my civil drafting career began in the late 90’s. As my career shifted and matured from drafting to civil engineering, it became apparent that pursuing the SIT certification and the subsequent RPLS license were the next steps for my career. Thank you to all the people that support my career endeavors.
TSPS: Why did you join TSPS?
Jose: TSPS gives me the opportunity to be a part of a great organization. I enjoy meeting people and learning from attending seminars. TSPS has certainly given me the opportunity to meet other professionals and learn from their experiences. At the end of the day, it’s the fellowship that matters to me and I’m glad to be a part of TSPS.
TSPS: What is your most memorable surveying moment?
Jose: I’m not sure I have a most memorable surveying moment. I mean, I haven’t been chased by a swarm of bees or anything like that. But I truly enjoy and love the outdoors. So, I always jump on the opportunity to put on a pair of boots, roll up my sleeves, and survey for some of my projects. Besides, we all need a change of pace sometimes and these opportunities provide a good reason to get out from behind the desk. Therefore, every opportunity to survey is a memorable one for me.
