I'm 22 and live in Christchurch, New Zealand.

I completed a BCom degree endorsed in Marketing at Canterbury University (UC - kinda like UoC ). I'm currently working as an ERP Administrator at a company called Shape Technology. We manufacture a diverse range of products for a number of key clients, such as Parking Meter Machines, Gaming Machine Chassis/Metal Parts, Industrial Lights, and Side Walls for Rail Cars. My role is based around scheduling/planning of production as well as ERP integration. I hope to move into a sales/marketing role at some point in the future.

Very cool thread btw!

Well I'm 20 years old and I'm a full time student at New-Brunswick Community College taking a course in Technology of Instrumentation and automization. I also took a course in Electrical Engineering 2 years ago at University of Moncton but didn't like the University and dropped out for my current course. After I am done my course at NBCC I'm planing on going out west hopefully in Alberta to work. I'm also currently working 2 part-time jobs, one with the Bathurst Regional Airport and the second with Sobeys. That just about sums up everthing you need to know about me

I am going into grade twelve and considering the instrumentation field. Is the course fairly tough?

Its not impossibly hard but its alot of troubleshooting and finding the best solution for every situation because one small thing can save a company 250k a year easily so you have to find the best solution for each problem I quite enjoy it i highly recommend it but if you don't enjoy the thrill of troubleshooting i suggest you look elsewhere

It sounds like a good field. I am pondering taking the two year diploma or just the apprenticeship program but have not decided.

Government doesn't really get hook ups since you gotta write an exam just to get an interview. But they always hire new people at the call center each season, apply in summer, interviews fall time.

Everyone has to go through the call center, so if you are thinking of going into audit or collections, prepare to do some customer service stuff at the call center. The only way to bypass that is if you're an accountant with experience already.

if you are to go in the field i highly suggest taking the course and not just jump into it you learn so much stuff that makes the field that much easier when you take the course you will understand the reasoning behind it instead of going by the " well they told me to do it like this so it must be like this"

No interest in being a pilot? I think I heard somewhere the airlines will be hiring half a million pilots worldwide over the next 20 years.

I've always wanted to be a pilot. Still not giving up the dream.

Ya I've heard that you gain a lot more necessary material in the course, that you miss out on in the apprenticeship program as well. Thanks for the advice, really helpful actually.

It's just the moderator tag.


But I feel like a completely out in this group...

Turning 20, 3rd year at UofC for BA in Psychology major, aiming at adding a Japanese minor. Looking to be involved in counselling, therapy or something of the sort long term but we'll see what happens down the road. Other than that, there's just working 2 part time jobs, teaching private piano at an organization as well as working at The Source.

I guess that seemed like a good place for a shameless plug. If you need new shingles, I'll hook you up with the HF discount.
Damn, dude. If you lived in Edmonton (like this displaced Flames fan), I'd definitely use you for a roof on a large rental property. Can't find decent and reliable trades up here without paying two arms and a leg.

22 and working as an EMR graduating to EMT in 7 months. Mostly work out of town in Sundre/Three Hills. Been doing this for nearly 2 years as a graduate of SAIT's program.

Hope to be a part of the Alberta STARS program or as a field medic (thought about the Army) but seeing as I'm not the primary in an ambulance yet, might be a while before I'm in a helicopter… say, ten years. :p

And as always, posting from my phone.

I like my privacy so please forgive the vague anonymity.

I'm a HSE Manager for a medium-large industrial employer. After majoring in a science program I switched to health and safety. Still schooling part time however.

So you're a drug dealer?

But seriously, how competitive is your rates? Cheaper than the wholesalers?
