My life Planning: Jalen Chatman

Our team of Certified Compensation Professionals has analyzed survey data collected from thousands of HR departments at companies of all sizes and industries to present this range of annual salaries for people with the job title Civil Engineer I in the United States.
Yellow Hat: The positive things about making $82,000 or $110,000 a year is because the average family makes $30,000 a year. So my salary is a lot more than the average family. Making more than the average family is good because you won't just be a number or apart or the population that's just average.
Green Hat: The things I could of with the extra money I get a month is giving back to the community . For example I could donate some of the money to homeless shelters or donate the money to a good cause then be selfish and keep all my money to myself, I'm not that kind of person.
Black Hat: I believe if I don't make enough money I wouldn't be able to take care of my family and spend time with them doing the stuff we like to do because I don't make enough money for use to do stuff. So if I don't I can have my wife work so we can have extra money to do things as a family.
Red Hat: My feelings about making a lot of money is that I would be happy first because I get to take care of my family and have fun with my family, also I could give back to the community. So the way I picture my future its full of happiness
Blue Hat: The thinking process to making good money is to first take things serious because if you don't then your not going to get that far in life because your still going to believe its play time when its not. The second thing is to always have a Plan B because if plan A doesn't work then you have Plan B to fall back on. The last thing to always do your best because even if you fail you could fail knowing you tried your best.
White Hat: For family I want a wife and at the most 4 kids. I believe that me and my wife would have to work to support our big family. The reason I say that is because if I only make $82,000 a year possibly make $120,000 a year I would still need extra help with things the kids needs and other stuff like that.
Black Hat: If I don't make enough money then I really can't take care of my large family. So I really need to manage my money correctly or I'm going to fall behind in bills and other things I have to pay in adult life. I could also fall behind with a lot of things that need money all because I didn't mange my money correctly.
Blue Hat: The thinking process of having a big family is planning how many kids you want and how much money you make a year. So you can see if you could be able to keep your head above water and survive in any circumstance. You also need to make sure you manage your money right cause if you don't you would end up blowing all your money and having to pay late fees on most of your bills because you didn't manage your money correctly.
Green Hat: I really hope by the time I graduate from college the salary for a civil engineer would increase. If you want to have a big family you need big money. The reason is because kids are really expensive to take care of plus bills on top of that which could also take up most of the money.
Red Hat: My Feelings to having a big family is that I feel really happy about having a big family because it gives my kids to experience what I didn't growing up. They well experience the brother and sister loving bond as a family. They will also be there for one another which is good communication for a family.
Yellow Hat: The positive things about having a big family is because I believe that no one will fell left out. I mean that we will always be doing things that involves the whole family. I want my kids to have siblings to grow up with is because me growing up I had a brother and a sister but they didn't live with us, so I basically felt like a only child. I want my kids to have that brother and sister bonding type relationship which is pretty much everyone's goals in life.
White Hat: I found this house that is affordable and a good starter house for my family. Here is the link to the house
After looking at this house and seeing how much money I would make this house is pretty good for me and my future family.
Black Hat: From me not making enough money me and my family would have to live in an area that we can afford, which means it may be in a bad part of town so we would have t o be very careful of what we do/ what we say.
Yellow Hat: Living in a good community is good because that means a good school system for your kids to get a good education at. While if you live in a bad community then your kid may go to a bad school then they really wouldn't have a chance to show the school and teachers show that they are really smart because they are surrounded by bad kids.
Red Hat: Feelings have a lot to do with which community you live in. I say that because if you live in a good community then your gonna have more good days than bad days. If you live in a bad community you have o worry a lot so you can really be happy or have fun times because your worried about if your kids are going to make it home from school ok.
Green Hat: One of my ideas of living in a good community is like building good and affordable apartment buildings in good community so we can try to get all the good people out of the bad communities that they are forced to be in because they don't make enough money to move to a good community
Blue Hat: The thinking process of living in a good community are making good amounts of money because that kind of shows what community you live in. For example if you live in the hood and you make minimum wage the that shows how your living. While if your making millions and you have a huge mansion then that shows how much money you make at whatever job your doing.
Green Hat: For people that have enough money to go to college to get whatever career they want they can always just right a grant to send off and most likely the person would be accepted for whatever they need.
White Hat: I found what civil engineering is "Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.
The built environment encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Buildings and bridges are often the first constructions that come to mind, as they are the most conspicuous creations of structural engineering, one of civil engineering's major sub-disciplines. Roads, railroads, subway systems, and airports are designed by transportation engineers, another category of civil engineering. And then there are the less visible creations of civil engineers. Every time you open a water faucet, you expect water to come out, without thinking that civil engineers made it possible. New York City has one of the world’s most impressive water supply systems, receiving billions of gallons of high-quality water from the Catskills over one hundred miles away. Similarly, not many people seem to worry about what happens to the water after it has served its purposes. The old civil engineering discipline of sanitary engineering has evolved into modern environmental engineering of such significance that most academic departments have changed their names to civil and environmental engineering".
White Hat: Colleges- Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, UTAustin
Red Hat: My feelings about becoming a engineer is that I love math like crazy so I found a job that I could help build things and do math at the same time. Also ill be making good money for a good cause.
Blue Hat: The thinking process about becoming a civil engineer is to take as many math classes as you can in high school so you won't have to worry about it later in college life. If you don't take it in high school then you have to worry about taking it in college which would make no sense because if you have the chance to take it early take it because taking It later is really just wasting your time
Yellow Hat: The good things about being a civil engineer is because you can make good money by basically doing what you love to do which is either building things or dealing with math trying to build something.
Black Hat: The negative things about being a civil engineer is that the world really needs engineers and by the time I graduate college then there would already be to many people working as engineers so I really wouldn't get paid that much. That's what I really believe is going to happen.
