Languages of publication
The phenomenon of job satisfaction is related not only to the aspects of work efficiency and production but also to psychic satisfaction, which is an end in itself, for the structural engineers. This descriptive study aimed to determine and analyze the factors influencing the success of structural engineers Career success was assumed compromise extrinsic (compensation) and intrinsic (job satisfaction) elements. The individual respondents were selected from the list Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP) using purposive sampling. Some interesting insights of the study are (a) The demographic variables of structural engineers, to a large extent contribute to the success of structural engineers. b) The level of career success of structural engineers is dependent on the profile of structural engineers that determine its extrinsic and intrinsic success.
