How easy is it to find employment in wind turbine blade repair if you have no experience but have attended the required GWO courses?

Answers

Even with no experience there are lots of opportunities.  I would suggest targeting the organizations that you’d like to work for and call the head of the department.  Introduce yourself and share your training/education to date and make it a research call.  Tell the person you have been researching different organizations that you’d like to work for in the future.  Ask some open ended questions such as – How did they get into this field, where do they see the future going for the industry, what schools do they typically recruit from, if someone has your education how would they suggest you’d go about entering the field.  Those are few ideas. If you’d like to probe further just drop me an email dana@lighthouseconsulting.com.  We also have several career guidance articles on our website and we do career guidance in-depth workstyle assessment and career counseling.
