I am here because I am a...

Just a surveyor

Please tell other members why you are here:

I worked as an independent contracted field crew to registered surveyors from 2000 until 2007. I have been out of the industry for a few years. Form 1992 to 2004 (there was some overlap with my field work) I operated Watts Instruments in Ohio, a full service dealer for Wild/Leica, Topcon, Pentax, Sokkia, Nikon, and other makes. My brother and I ran the repair shop. I had professional training in machining and repair of old school equipment at Wild, in Heerbrugg Switzerland, in 1974. We are considering a move to Chile, and I am now seeking a job there. Our primary objective is foir me to find a job in Chile. I am most qualified as a field surveyor or repair tech. I'm not registered anywhere but I have a mountain of practical experience and I seek only a job. I am a native quality German and Swiss German speaker, and I'm developing better skills in Spanish.

I have experience with the following

GPS, construction staking, topographic surveys, control network surveys, teaching, Equipment Sales, Equipment Repair
