About Me


Hi there! I'm Yi Hou and this is my website. I live in Dallas, TX, where everything is BIG.

I have been working for leading engineering consulting firms for 7 years. My roles have included data visualization and data analysis. I have led several people on several million-dollar projects.

I hold a master's degree in Environmental Informatics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
My registration and certifications include the following:

  • Professional Engineer (PE), Texas
  • Geographic Information Professional (GISP)
  • Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM)
  • LEED Green Associate (LEED GA)
  • ArcGIS Desktop Associate 10.3
  • Certified Base Programmer for SAS 9

As a job seeker, I participated in 8 career fairs and networked with hundreds of people, received over 20 interview opportunities and obtained over 10 offers (both full time and internship).

As an employer, I led three company career fairs, talked to over 400 job seekers, interviewed 12 people from junior to senior level and reviewed over 500 resumes.

As a new job seeker, you should start reading the Job Search Preparation and let me know if you have any questions. Have fun!
