Former Careers in Western Canada
Alberta, British Columbia and NWT
A personal view by Gregory Melle
|I had several careers before my software consultant.|
I did a lot of hotel work. That started in Montreal where I worked as front desk night auditor, busboy and bartender at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel.
Some early traumatic work experiences prompted me to get my Industrial First Aid ticket.
That led to a variety of industrial jobs.
Around 1982, I tried to get steady floorhand work on oil field drilling and servicing rigs based in Edmonton, Alberta.
I never managed to get on steady.
I was also influenced by a desire for a good union wage.
I ended doing union construction labourer and first aid work for more than five years around Vancouver.
