Geology/entry Geologist question


Hi Tariq.
Your qualifications are impressive.
I am a Geologist, age 54 and diagnosed with a mental illness.
Should I give up looking for a geology job?
David MacNeil          Calgary

Dear David,

My sincere apology for late response.

First, I am sorry to hear about your difficulty and pray with Almighty to give you complete health.

This is a tough question and I am not sure if I am the right person and qualified enough to answer.

I think at this age you must have a several years of geological experience and you have must have been employed before in any geology related company such as oil or mineral exploration etc.

If you are under treatment with your recently diagnosed illness, I understand that you are still able to work and based on my this assumption I would suggest you to keep on working and if you are out of job you may pursue all opportunities. How severally you are ill and how mush it effects on your working performance you may judge it well but if illness has been in control then you must look for all possible jobs you like to have.

I am not sure if I help you or not but I tries to give you the best answer as I could.

Kindest regards
