I have spent the last three months or nearly three months, working for some electricians in brisbane. They offered me a permanent position and it would not be very terrible to take it perhaps, because it is not as though I would just be a common electrician. Instead I was working as an automation specialist. I needed some money to finish my education, in fact I was tapped out and had nothing to fall back on. I would have settled for just about any job, but I sort of lucked into this and convinced the contractor that I could do the job. What he needed was an electrical engineer who understood how to work with automation. He was looking to grab a rather juicy contract to build a production line for a Japanese manufacturer of small engines.
