Provide a 50-75 word discussion reply to the following post below. Finding opportunities in the Energy Industry

 
What aspects of the job interest you? What type of upward  mobility does this job provide? Where do you see yourself five or ten  years after you first start the job?
This is a brand-new field for me and so in terms of upward mobility, I  wasn’t really sure on where I wanted to go, just that I wanted to be in  the energy industry. I really enjoyed the description for Nuclear  Health Physics Technician because of how involved it appears to be with  regulatory guidelines and procedures. Previously I worked in social  services and legal, so I have a strong background in policy and  procedure, and enjoy dealing with records, reports and manuals. I think  that in 5-10 years I’d like to work in policy because it’s what I love.
What are some of the job responsibilities described for this position?
Nuclear health physics technicians perform activities that protect  employees that work in environments that contain radioactive materials,  such as nuclear power plants, healthcare facilities, and research  facilities. Technicians are responsible for:
-assessing and monitoring radiation levels of personnel, equipment and various environments
-ensuring workplace safety by designing and implementing safety procedures to maintain the health and safety of workers
-monitoring nuclear activity of materials and processes and collecting and analyzing radioactivity data.
-enforcing regulatory guidelines and perform frequent safety inspections
-keeping accurate records and creating reports and updating  procedures and manuals as needed. -maintaining inventory on various  safety items, devices and equipment.
What types of training or education will prepare you for the  job? Once you acquire the job, what type of training or education will  prepare you to advance in your position?
The educational requirements for this job are an associate’s degree  in health physics or a related science field. As well from several  listings for this position it is preferred that the applicant be NRRPT  (National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists) certified and  also gain DOE clearance. Because this is a new field for me, I would be  welcome to any suggestions about what I should be doing while I’m in  school and when I finish.
Give an example of a work activity which may require the skill sets of multiple crafts mentioned above.
I am also looking at potentially becoming a radiological control  technician which falls under the broader career category of nuclear  monitoring technician. I think using skills I already enjoy such as  monitoring, following procedure, and interpreting information to  administer different necessary actions can translate well to the careers  listed above.
