I initially did health physics for biopharma. I'm in a really bad spot now due to leaving job for family illness and willing to get back into a nuclear position.

What is the quickest way I can get into a decent nuclear job?
I've applied as a NLT, RO, and AUX (NUC) at several places. Are there other positions I should apply for? I was an EM2 (SS), no EWS, in the navy so I assume SRO is off the table.

I'm really hurting and need employment quickly.

FYI, odd as it sounds, you have less of a chance for RO than SRO.

kernkraft - It sounds like you may be down a bit. Sometimes it is hard to get a job when you are down - You can project negativity when interviewing.

I have been told that I seem sad when I interview. That's usually because I miss the good old days when I worked for a Nuke. Be sure to look at other industries - a lot of my former coworkers are in grid ops now. That pays well but still has rotations. Right now I am ok working a fixed dayshift job but would go back to rotating shift for the right money and time off.

Fully aware of that. An SRO license is gold. Get one on a BWR and one on a PWR and be a shift manager on both and you might as well be the mint
