I did bachelor in materials engineering (metallurgy) and then focused on refractory materials processing, failure, and material selection during my master and Ph.D. studies. However, for last four years, I have been employed at Acuren where I have had the great opportunity to perform several failure investigations. This opportunity helped me to update my knowledge of metallurgy and solidify the fundamentals of materials failure mechanism and failure investigation. To create more opportunities to advance my career, I realized that I have to upgrade my materials engineering expertise including weld engineering, corrosion, materials selection, and failure analysis for oil and gas industries. I am looking for a mentor with strong background and network in this field who can guide me with planning and goal setting. I believe my mentor could help me to develop realistic goals and schedule to reach them. My mentor would help me to make key decisions to avoid unnecessary mistakes.

I am looking for a mentor who can give me insight and guidance on finding employment as a new grad in the lower mainland. This would entail knowing where I can focus my efforts, who I should try and contact, and how I can better my skills on a budget. I graduated from Carleton University in 2016. After a few months of job hunting in Ottawa, I found myself being consistently outbid by applicants who had far more experience than I had when applying for entry level positions. With no success in sight, my financial situation dwindling, and family issues arising, I decided to move to BC. For the past year I have been living with my grandparents, providing in-home care for both of them. I have been able to stay afloat by working part-time jobs here and there that varied from modeling, background acting, playtesting, and shuttle driving. My grandparents' health have significantly improved since I started providing care and have finally gotten to a point where I can begin my professional career. After my job hunting experiences in Ottawa I was left feeling pretty destroyed and useless. Even now when I apply to jobs it can be a significant mental struggle.

Alternative Energy Systems
P.Eng.
I am looking for a mentor to guide me in project management especially relating to renewable energy, building mechanical systems, and community design. I have been working for two years at DEC engineering with a focus on District Energy feasibility studies and providing support on building HVAC design projects. Recently I have been taking on more responsibility as a project manager and I would like to have some mentorship on effective project management practices, common pitfalls, and how these were avoided in my mentor's area of work. A field relating to district energy, renewable energy, or building systems would be an asset but I think my questions would span a broad range of disciplines. I am based in Victoria, but travel to Vancouver (New Westminster) from time to time and could meet with a mentor in either location.

Fraser Valley
Terrain Analysis
P.Geo.
I have nearly completed all the requirements to become a P. Geo. but I work for a small company and I don't get a chance to casually meet with other professionals who work in the forest industry doing terrain stability field assessments, CWAP, IWAP, etc. projects. I am a P. Ag. with abundant experience with soils, soil survey, mapping, and pedology. In my spare time, I am completing my Master's Degree at SFU looking at reconstructing the paleoenvironment in Chehalis valley, north of Chilliwack, using soils, macrofossils, and stratigraphy. I am nearly done my thesis and I'm really excited about that. I am hoping to find a mentor who has complementary experience and has worked throughout BC.

Geotech./Soil Mech./Rock Mech.
EIT
I graduated with a degree in Agricultural & Bioresource Engineering (Natural Resources stream). I was hired as a Geotechnical EIT at a geotech testing and engineering company in Fort St. John. Most of my work has been related to geotech investigations for the construction industry and part of my work has been in environmental monitoring. I would like guidance in knowing where to direct my energies over the next few years as I work towards my PEng. One of my largest hurdles is that my work experience for the Competency Experience Reporting System must be at least one month in length but all the projects we work on are typically 6 weeks or less in length.

Sales & Marketing
EIT
I am an experienced field engineer who has over-specialized towards Sulfur processing from oil and gas sources. After having moved to BC from Alberta I started focusing on technical sales and would like some guidance on how to become successful as a sales engineer and balance integrity and enthusiasm. I am very active with the engineering society in Vancouver (the local branch) and feel that by having a mentor to share his wisdom and experience I will avoid making some foolish mistakes of youth. I would be happy to send my Resume directly to you but do not feel comfortable having it online due to my employment.

I am a Junior/Intermediate Civil (geotechnical) Engineer with specializing in geotechnical and geostructural. My academic background is in both geotechnical and civil engineering. I would like to be mentored by the senior civil engineer or geological engineer that I could use his guidance to build up my future career way. Thanks Amirali

P.Eng.
Hi, My ideal mentor would be someone who has an electrical power engineering background that has successfully transitioned into management/executive/CEO type roles. I enjoy technical engineering but what really drives me is how to get the most out of people and how to empower them to do their best. I want to know how I can make the transition so that I can offer a company my best skills. Kind Regards, Blair
