I have been applying, I can't seem to even get an interview.
I live in Arizona and the plant here is full up. I've even sent my application to APS using a few people I know who are engineers at the plant as reference.
I figured that power school or officer candidate would be a way to prove/ensure my success in the field since right now I seem to be having problems even getting the interviews. I also figure after my enlistment is over, between retirment/new facilities opening there will be an abundance of jobs availible for someone with my background.
I've applied with PG & E, Exelon, Entergy and Southern Company.
I just need a job soon, I am 25, unemployed and in a dire situation where the initial industry I wanted to get into is downsizing like mad (litterally around 90% of the work force at most companies is being laid off (Healthcare research)). I am picking nuclear as my life's choice because it has amazing potential and I feel it would help with the environmental situation.
Do you have any suggestions for becoming an NLO? resume targeting, places to apply to etc? Ive been trying to find places on job search engines with limited success.
Thanks much, your reply was definitely appreciated.
