  • occupation/career and education?

    I have had to ask the question of ' occupation/career and education?' a couple of times in this forum so i thought i'd just ask everyone at the the same time the question so that I, and others, can have a clearer understanding of where we are coming from. I spose it is similar to the questions asked before of where on the political spectrum we all sit (or move between).

    Myself, ive worked in in some of the lowest jobs known to man but generally in primary production and metal shops and ATM im getting myself a decent education in Politics and International Studies and History.

    Hope to do something in the gov when I graduate (hopefully some sort of security thing ), may even do a DipEd and go down that path.

        Currently Non-Union Plumber and Union Sheetmetal Worker. Ohh production shops T; those suck. I prefer the field on larger commercial and industrial jobs. I have worked in all the construction trades at one time or another. It's very helpfull sometimes when things get tight. Plus I have a greater understanding of the total picture on a job.

        Highschool and some trade specific schooling. I will probably do some more of the latter and get more cards, certifications, and liscences.

          Congradulations! Enjoy it to the fullest extent possible making a career derailing offense. (In other words don't get caught.)

          Seriously. Hope your future is as bright as the dreams graduation invokes.

                Have a trades diploma in aviation maintenance, and am currently working in the helicopter industry. Will be a full fledged licenced maintenance engineer within a month or two (it's been a long 6 years!). Also have first year university equivalency, and will be returning to university within a few years to finish some kind of a history or poli-sci degree (right now, leaning towards history).

                      Education: Bachelor's in Political Science with History minor.

                      Occupation: External Affairs, Department of Homeland Security

                      Career: I'm not sure. I'm formerly a political campaign manager and consultant (DP if you run as a Republican, I know a good campaing manager ), so that's an option. However, it's difficult with a family, so we'll have to see what I come up with.

                      Take care,
                      Brian

                        Soccer DJ if you are going into the branch of Mechanical Engineering that deals with the design of mechanical systems, plumbing, HVAC, and process piping; I would recomend that during summer quaters in college you hire on as a laborer in those trades on some bigger projects. Yes it will be hard work but you will see many mistakes Engineers make. There is a big difference between something working on paper and the real world. Getting that difference right in the paper stage can save tons in change orders and make or break an engineer's reputation.

                          Amen to that, also give you an idea about what the people at the coalface are dealing with and give you a better understanding of the crews you'll have to deal with.
