For a small company in western Canada, like Ramtech, attracting good talent can be a difficult, long and time-consuming process. We compete with oil and gas companies, a booming construction industry and all of the associated service jobs that go with them. Last year, Statistics Canada reported that almost 87 % of all new jobs in Canada were created in Alberta, largely in high-profile areas of mining, oil, gas and construction. This is great news except that it makes it challenging for the other lil' guys.
Luckily for us, the field of water and wastewater treatment is diverse, rewarding and ever increasing in scope. Generally those involved take pride in what they do and their responsibilities towards the general public and the environment. Because the requirement to treat water and wastewater will never go away, and in all likelihood, will become increasingly necessary and important, considering a life-long career related to water seems like a rewarding no-brainer.
So what are you waiting for. Take the plunge and consider a career in water and wastewater treatment!
