I'm a 2nd with 5/8 1st papers. Power engineering is my second career. I'm a causality of the forestry industry. Yep, went back to school at the ripe old age of 34. Now I'm 40, with a lot of catching up to do financially. I'm currently employed in the oil and gas industry as a shift-engineer in plants with over 10000 therm hours. GTGs, HRSGs, Boilers, and associated huge plant utility systems.I also have process experience, but no panel as of yet.
I like my current position, but I "hear tell of heaven in Alberta" I'm from central Canada and find that I seldom hear back from employers. I'm wondering does this have something to do with my postal code, or my lack of relative experience. (4-years with the last 2 as shift-engineer) or both.
I'd appreciate advice.
To Employers: I'm looking for camp 3 on 3 off so it makes sense for me to pay the extra travel. 2 on 2 off could work depending on the deal. I'd prefer contract so I can mitigate taxes and write off flights/expenses. I'm a bull-dog worker who used to be a logger so no complaining from me!
