Son-in-law wants to become a surveyor
i have to admit i opened this expecting to see a post and responses entirely different than this- more along the lines of trying to figure out how to derail a gravy train...
how to derail a gravy train
I've heard lots of good things about UMaine
Sure you haven't tried hard enough to make him see the error in his ways?
Engineering is far better choice - more money, more professional support, more respect and you get to stay in a nice warm office most of the time...
(If he falls for this then he doesn't deserve to be a surveyor)
This is great. Encourage him. If nothing else he will develop a higher level of respect for you.
Had a client tell me the other day that her husband thought maybe he should become a surveyor. I'm sure it had something to do with the cost of the survey. As I began to explain what he would need to do she could tell rather quickly that this wasn't something for a guy in his late 50's to take on for easy income in his old age. Step one being to find a survey company that needed fresh blood to work in the field. Step two being trying to obtain the necessary formal education without moving and still working fulltime at surveying. I think he will continue to be a minister. I would like to hear what he might have to say when hitting his thumb while attempting to drive a MAG nail into something rather solid.
