I thought I was working for a Civil/Survey firm, but it turns out its more a civil eng. company with a total station. The PE(and owner) is also a PLS and can stamp his own survey work for his projects. The tech we use is very basic (total station only), and I'm not using any of the skills or knowledge my education provided. While I know there is profit in my skills beyond my ability to run a total station, I don't know if I should try to learn on my own and add my value to this company or if I be looking for another job with a firm that already uses the more advanced spatial sciences that I want to implement.
