I compiled a list of all the logging companies on Vancouver Island, where I live, and sent resumes to the ones I researched and found out had remote camps. Networking and word of mouth helped me narrow down my search. I also found out the names of catering companies providing services for the camps and sent my resumes to them. It took me a couple of months to get the first job. I have worked as steadily as I chose to for the past 25 years now. I was advised to get Occupational 1st Aid Level 3 certification which helped me secure employment too. There is a need for 1st Aid Attendants; there needs to be one once the numbers each at a certain level. It makes sense for the cook to have certification and it usually nets a bit more of an hourly wage if you are in a union camp. 1st Aid certification helps but isn't necessary. I secured employment in many camps without having the certification too. Asking questions of people such as myself is a good networking tool.
