Each day, I have the opportunity to work with some great people. We really do bring out the best in each other. I know personally my knowledge and skills have grown with every project and every person I interact with at Cameron. Our company's reputation is perfection and reliability. Therefore, we have to be flawless in what we do. We have to get it right the first time, and we usually do. But we're only human, so we rely heavily on each other and our training and experience.
My time at Cameron has really helped me discover new avenues for my career. There are plenty of opportunities for the motivated professional. I have the chance to expand on my current career path or use my experience to branch off to other groups. My talents have also led me to join our Safety Committee and First Response team. The knowledge I've gained from that alone has made a difference in my personal and professional life. I take pride in my work, but knowing what I do has an effect on the company and its people – that's a great reward.
Bottom line, Cameron is a strong company. I can honestly say I feel secure in my career. And even though the economy is a bit rough, I still am confident Cameron will be here tomorrow. We're going in the right direction and anticipating the future of the industry and of our company. But you have to prove your worth. The job we do requires excellence in all you do. You have to be "on" all the time. If you're looking to challenge yourself, grow as a professional and build a solid and successful career, then Cameron is the perfect place to do it.
