employment

I am having extreme difficulty in finding a job. I have certificates in Radiation Safety and Ultrasonic Testing. Before taking these courses, I consulted with people in the NDT industry. Had I known the difficulty I would be having, I would not have invested in the classes. I need experience to get a job and a job to get experience....I would be grateful for the opportunity to work in the NDT industry in any capacity, I just need to get my foot in the door. Does anyone have any advice on how I can go about doing this? Thanks :)

This is not a new problem. It was true in the 70’s as it is today. The same question has been asked in this room, so I will advise you to look at, “newcomer how to gain experience to pass practical exams”
All the best and good luck

Thanks, I appreciate it! A local company is hiring people like me; people that have the classes, but no experience. I was told, in January.....will continue networking...and hope for the best.
