Steve’s Cover Letter


Seismic contractors have shown me that, despite 30+ years of experience and a rising demand for my talents, they can’t get past the fact that I am not 25 years old, anymore.

These are clueless HR people who  have never done anything outside a comfortable office.  I will work almost anywhere that won’t kill me outright.  I am mentally alert, physically strong and unexpectedly ingenious.  If you need people like that and are not afraid of a few grey hairs, contact me.  Otherwise – have a good day and goodbye.

My health is excellent and I am currently swimming over one mile per day.   I am fluent in English and Spanish and have some familiarity with French and Russian.  I have traveled extensively in North and South America and somewhat in Europe and Asia.

I have given up on these companies who seem to think I am a fire hazard (all those candles on my Birthday Cake, don’t you know.):  Bell Geospace, CGG, Seabed, Downunder, SAExploration and PGS  (…et tu, Brute?).  I must say you all disappoint me! I thought you were better than this – but you are not.

I am now looking outside the Seismic Clique and so I expect to be blackballed by them.  I will have trouble finding any  differences in their shunning of me for  age and shunning me for disloyalty, of course.  I will be rewriting the resume toward the goal of Leaving Seismic.  I still love the Science, but the employers have feet of clay.
