Default Looking for Work

As the title states, looking for a new job. I have a bachelors degree in Project Management and 4 years of fulltime construction experience with being a PE in the field to now currently working as an estimator. I would be fine staying in construction but am also fine branching out to different career fields. My current company is going down the path of heavy restrictions with the Covid stuff and not wanting to stick around.

Not looking for one specific area of Texas, but I am located in San Antonio and would be open to travel or move for the opportunity.

PM me if anyone knows of anything available, and I can shoot you over a resume. Thanks for the help in advance.

If I understood correctly, the desire to drive a forklift is the root cause of most problems.

Tesla has a class at TSTC Waco (https://www.tstc.edu/workforce/tesla-start/ ) as well as other schools. When I first read it, it seemed to be geared to service technician type training/employment. after reading more it seemed like there might be multiple courses with some geared toward manufacturing. Not sure if any of this might interest you but I think Tesla is here to stay and a place to start a career.

Best of luck finding something that fits you and meets your needs.

Marek?



OP good luck staying in the construction field if youíre worried about following Covid protocols. If it isnít being pushed by your own company, itís being pushed by Owners who push it to the GCs who push it to the subs. My company requires weekly testing for the unvaccinated folks.

From what you posted, it seems like you're a man that could work for himself.
Is that a option?

PE means professional engineer. It is a licensed designation, eg. CPA. Not project engineer and not petroleum engineer. But sounds like op has a great foundation. The world is your oyster my man! I hope op finds a dream job.

One day when you retire, what would you have wished you did next? Write the story of your life.

I suggest you decide what you really want to do, and then follow your dream. Donít let other people hiring make the decision for you.

My 2 cents.

Donít confuse them with Project Executives, Project Engineers, Petroleum Engineer (also a P.E.), Pouty Extremists or ****** Examiners.

Or Poultry Executioners

I will always remember this, it must have been 20 years ago or more. On an episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Regis asked the contestant what they did for a living and the contestant responded that he was a DMO. Regis asked him to explain, and he responded with Dishwashing Machine Operator at a restaurant ��

Ok. Sorry OP, don’t mean to derail the thread. If interested in Wind Energy, shoot me a PM.
