Hey, I was just looking for people's feedback. I've completed a Bachelors in Engineering Physics (Canada) and a Masters in Subatomic Physics (France -research oriented, was originally leaning towards particle physics research not anymore). Needless to say theyres basically no nuclear jobs to look for in Canada as the Feds have put them on the chopping board. So, I've been applying abroad for awhile and basically getting no responses from american nuclear companies (I took a strong nuclear component in my Eng degree: reactors, monte carlo etc). I've had a few interviews with areva france, but ultimately they reject me as I have no direct nuclear experience. I am fully fluent in French. I'm guessing that I'm not getting the american ones as they prefer american citizens. So, I'm now looking at Nuclear Eng Master's abroad, I've got my eyes on a specific one in France (INSTN) but I also keep thinking that maybe an American one would be good. It is my home continent and maybe I would eventaully tire of beaing abroad (I don't really consider Canada to America as being abroad). And nuclear looks like it's finally back on the upswing in the States. I very much like the French culture and being surrounded by other cultures. I feel I should do this Master's in the country I intend to work in. I've no intention of doing a PhD. I see myself working for someone like westinghouse or areva or ge in reactor core design. Any thoughts? If I did a Master's in the states would I still face major barriers by my lacking citizenship?
