Do you have any suggestions for my friend?
My friend has a B.S.in Electronics Engineering Technology and he has been both a troubleshooting and design engineer at a Fortune 500 company for 20 years. His specialty is avionics and radar. He is not paid nearly as well as he should be and he is tired of training engineers from India so that all the junior engineering jobs can be shipped overseas. He is qualified for his company’s early retirement plan. His kids are out of college and doing well in their own careers. He would enjoy working away from home. He is looking for an interesting and lucrative second career.
I have encouraged him to look into opportunities in the oil industry, but he has been confined to a narrow track by the bureaucracy at his company for so long that he has trouble believing that his skills are transferable outside of avionics.
Where might he fit in the offshore industry.
