Donís brother works as a Power Engineer at on of the Universities in town. Donís brother told him about Power Engineer and what it was all about from his perspective. He even wen to his brotherís place of work to check it out. The thing was, Don was intimidated (just as I and many others have been) by the job. So, Don shied away from it first time around.

But then Don got a job with an industrial x-ray and nondestructive testing outfit and found himself going from industrial plant to industrial plant performing his job related tasks. After seeing other people doing what ever they all do at many different industrial plants and talking to a few Don got the idea that this wasnít so intimidating after all. He figured he was just as capable as the next guy.

In 1996, at 21 years of age Don got involved in Power Engineering and since then there has been no turning back. Today he likes what he is doing for a variety of reasons. He says it is broad spectrum and universal in itís applications. What you learn at and for work you take home with you to apply to your every day living. Don is very excited about what he does for a living in that you donít do just one thing all day. He has a great variety of things he does and can do. "Itís a better way of life on and off the job." he says.

He likes working at the brewery because he is given credit for what he knows, he has job autonomy (unlike many other jobs), he can make improvements, he can make his own decisions about what has to be done and in what way it will be done. He feels like a somebody and part of a great team.

Donís only 26 (As of 2001)and owns a house and an almost new truck. He enjoys white water rafting and many other pursuits that the kind of income Power Engineering offers, allows him to afford.

Below are photos of Don exhibiting an ammonia refrigeration compressor and control panel.

Donís advice is:

Be physically able and mechanically inclined.

Donít allow yourself to be overwhelmed or intimidated by the job or by the learning you will have to take on.

If you are not sure of what you want in life Power Engineering is an excellent start to show you a world of other opportunities in industry. Power Engineering is a good break-in ticket.
