Career questions for nuclear engineers and experimental nuclear physicists.

  1. Mar 28, 2012 #1
    Hi! I'm currently doing a high school course regarding career paths, and for one task I have conduct an interview with someone who's working in a desired career. I'm unable to contact a nuclear engineer or an experimental nuclear physicist in person, so I was wondering if there were any of those here who would answer a few questions.

    I'd prefer an interactive interview over IM or email, or private messages here. If you're willing to answer some basic questions about the jobs in either of those fields, send me a private message here.

    By the way, the questions will be fairly basic: "What do you do for a job" and "What're the best/worst things about said job" and "what qualities should an aspiring nuclear engineer/physicist have" and such. Nothing invasive or lengthy or anything.

    Thank you for your time.

    One could find some answers through the American Nuclear Society - www.ans.org.

    One might even find an engineer or two who would respond to questions.
