Engineers careers, jobs, lifestyles & personal biographies
Stationary Engineer's interview with
Macheal got into Power
Engineering Technology because of the variety of
different directions one can take in this
didn't like the idea of working night shift but he did
like all the interesting things a person can do.
The interesting thing is he never got involved in
Power Engineering because he wanted to be involved in
the profession. He knew that working in the profession
meant that he would be working the dreaded night
shift. He got involved in Power Engineering
Technology so he could get a job doing something
You see Macheal has a degree in
chemistry which basically buys you nothing. He had
a really had tough time finding a decent job. The
jobs out there were low paying and doing boring mundane
stinky stuff. He wasn't doing much better than if
he was to work as a janitor.
He got into Power Engineering
Technology so he could get some experience in industry
and then sag way into job as a chemical treatment
representative. And ya know what? It
worked! The outfit that hired him as a summer
student was considering him for full time employment
when he got the call from a big chemical company and
bang, he was gone.
Everybody has their
lifestyle choices. Working days was Macheal's way
of having it the way he wants it to be for him.
Making $30,000 to $40,000 a year less
than what he would make as a Power Engineer Technologist
didn't matter to him. Working days did.
Money doesn't make every one's world go around and
Macheal's world will be great now because he got what he
Technology can get what you want too. It doesn't
matter if it is working inside or outside of the
profession. Having your certification has the
power to get you what it is you need to be in control of
Good luck Macheal...
