|Jay WAS a Research Scientist
University degree in science and a two-year PETROLEUM Engineering
diploma working pay cheque to pay cheque. All that education and little
reward for all the effort as well as the job he was doing.
Then Jay heard about Power Engineering Technology. Wow, what an eye opener!! He asked himself, "Why am I doing this Research Scientist thing, when I can be making scads of money and have half the year off to enjoy life?" He immediately got the books and studied for his entry level certificate and passed the exam all within a couple of months. Shortly there after he transferred within the company he was working for, and found himself employed as a Power Engineer Technologist.
Jay says it's like night and day between what he was doing before as a research scientist. The hours worked and the time off is great. The money and potential to earn money, compare to what he use to do, is like a dream come true. Sure there is structure to the work environment but I have a lot of autonomy in terms of how I handle it. You really get to use your noodle, which provides me greater job satisfaction.
The only regret Jay has is that he
chance to do this years earlier and passed up on it the first time
Boy what a mistake that was! Jay says, "Becoming a Power Engineer
is the best career move I've ever made. If I had known about this much
earlier and actually did something about it, I could have saved myself
years of studying my brains out. Just think, I could have had all that
time to enjoy life like I am today."
I highly recommend Power Engineer Technologist to those who want more from life or a career.
Jay has been in the business since the year 2000.
In 2002 and 2003, Jay was requested
a transfer to a new state of the art facility. Ya, it looks really cool!
But not every person is cut out to perform a control room job like this
one. This is a very busy and complex control room. It is
most refer to as a high stress position at this location.
Jay certainly has the intellect for it.
