40 Under 40: Jillian Favia
Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in, and why you chose the field/ profession you are in today?
I began my career in the profession I am in about 10 months ago. After graduating college with a civil engineering degree, I worked for three years at an energy consulting firm and then another two years at a structural engineering firm. After five years I finally realized I am more interested in seeing a construction project go from conception to end use instead of just the design aspect of one tiny piece of the pie.
What unique qualities do you feel make you successful in your profession?
I am a quiet person but I am very easy and useful to work with. I take great pride in being able to dig into something and do my own research to find a solution. In my short career I have obtained a vast amount of knowledge in the field but I am excited to continue to learn and further develop.
