Career information related to the Canadian Nuclear Enterprise:
Links to Nuclear Job Opportunity Sites
See Companies for
links to companies, institutions and agencies that hire in the nuclear
area. Don't forget that nuclear power plants are complex devices that
involve all engineering and science disciplines as well as business,
even the softer disciplines (human resources, ...). So consider using
your strengths in non-nuclear areas when you are career hunting in the
nuclear sector. Also remember that there are non-nuclear companies that
are involved in the nuclear sector. So you need not confine your search
to the mainstram players.
