Yeah I remember hearing about that.

The Turbines are good, the tower reps and management are just very difficult and have zero electrical knowledge. They're very unorganized for such a large company.

Tell me about it... vestas bastards never called on the service roads where i was working, and would always make a point of doing 100 whenever i was working on the road...

I'm a computer engineer in Montreal.

I live in the Laurentians, which is about 1h of traffic in the morning and 1h in the evening, but I live next to a nice mountain which has decent rates so all in all it's worth it.

Interesting to read all these different types of jobs.

Right now I'm a full time student. They call it an AP Degree in Marketing Management which opens up for several kinds of Bachelors. I'm starting an internship this January and end up the education in June with a final assignment. After this I'm thinking of studying a BA in Marketing and would love to move to The States or Canada for a semester. Maybe somewhere with chances for live out the dream of snowboarding at the same time would be sick!
I'm from Denmark (Europe) and there is really NO mountains here, the closest is Norway or/and Sweden but many people here travels to Austria during the winter season. As a student it's kinda hard finding the money for these trips so the time of snowboarding has only been one or two weeks per year which makes it really difficult to progress.

Lots of good marketing programs here in Vancouver

As for jobs... Who knows? There is a reason I didn't want to pursue a career in business :P
