There are quite a number of skills that a fresher should learn so that they can get a good job as a civil engineer. Below are the skills that are required.

1. The problem solving skills are very much important for any civil engineer. These skills will be required throughout your career as a civil engineer. Also the companies that will hire you, often check the problem solving skills during their written exams or the interviews. Therefore they need to be really good at solving puzzles, complex maths problems, logical riddles etc.

2. The civil engineers should know the value of the team work. Most of the times in your work as a civil engineer, you would be working with a number of people and not alone. You will have to coordinate with large number of people from the senior officials to the workers and laborers. Therefore you need to be a very good team player so that you can contribute in the best possible way towards your work.

3. As a civil engineer your design skills have to be of top quality. In this work profile you will be designing a number of infrastructural things. You also need to work closely with the architects and need to understand the design so that you can implement it in actuality. Therefore you need to work really hard to improve your design skills.

4. The world is getting tech savy and therefore your computer skills are also very much important. You should be able to work on the latest software with ease and comfort so that you can provide the solutions within time and greater accuracy. Most of the designs these days are only made in computers and therefore one has to learn to work on them.

5. As a fresher you should also work in your communications skills area in order to impress the employer during the interviews. The poor communications skills shown during the interviews often reduce your chances of getting selected. Also, it is important that you learn to communicate well with every one around you.
