Power Engineer's interview with Gord

Power Engineer Gord the superintendent 

Join us on Facebook at Power and Stationary Engineers

This is Gord. He is a foreman/superintendent who started out as, and still is a, P.E.T./Stationary Engineer. He kind-of stumbled into P.E.T./Stationary Engineering too. He had been attending University and going for a degree in Engineering. Thing was, he got board with University and wanted to get out and do something that excited him. He needed a change and a challenge that would excite him. He sent out hundreds of resumes with no success. Then it was suggested he attend a 6 week P.E.T./Stationary Engineering session at a local technical school as an adventure and see if it appealed to him.

Gord came out of the 6 week Power Engineer Technologist/Stationary Engineering course still not having a real clear idea of what P.E.T./Stationary Engineering was all about. He approached an employer he had sent out a resume to previously and actually got an interview. During the interview he expressed the fact that all he wanted was a JOB. Well he got the JOB and soon found out how the JOB could manifest itself into a GREAT CAREER.

Gord was very impressed with the personal challenge and satisfaction he found working as a P.E.T./Stationary Engineering so much so that he graduated through the ranks to foreman status by the time he was 28. He did most of his studying on shift and had all his education paid for by his employer too. He took it all the way to getting his First Class P.E.T./Staionary Engineer's certificate.

"Itís a matter of personal interest and intellectual challenge." Gord says. Gord likeís things to be 100% as anything worth doing, is worth doing well. Heís been in the business since 1984.
