what you bring to the table
As a process engineer you will need specialized training in your engineering discipline, but above and beyond that, you must be a problem solver. You have an inquiring mind and are excellent at analyzing processes and pinpointing areas for improvement.
You evaluate, design, maintain and improve various systems. As such you must be adept at communicating your ideas and findings, not only to management but to colleagues who must carry out the processes and procedures you design. This requires excellent written and verbal communication skills. Bilingualism (English/French) is an asset and can increase your earning potential.
As a process engineer, you may also be asked to head up implementation efforts or sell others (such as clients or executives) on the modifications and new approaches that you suggest replace old methods.
