As kids, we have always been asked to choose our ambitions nicely and carefully, it should be what we want and we desire. It has to be related to our passion so that our determinations and motivations are as strong as the beginning. Thus, if things ever get hard, we would not give up so easily. Furthermore, when we are young, we are very honest and genuine about how we truly feel about something including our ambitions, there are many cute ambitions we wanted to be without caring what adults thought of it. But nowadays, we are pickier, we want to be someone that everyone will respect and will present a good image of us like doctors, scientists, police officers and engineers. But no matter what we are working as, it is important to wear proper attire all the time. Nevertheless, some companies have their own preferences and reasons why they wanted certain attires and materials of your outfits, and one of them is because of safety. But have you ever wondered what female engineers have to wear to work, especially when they have to go to the best shipping company in Bintulu and the fashion challenges they have to endure?
One of the fashion challenges that these women had to accept was that it is dangerous to just wear any material for the outfit because the possibilities of the flame and explosions are high. Oil and gas engineers will normally work in the middle of the sea, on the oil platform where they will suck the oil from underground and process it there to be delivered around their factories to go through a different kind of process before being marketed around the country. Therefore, oil is commonly known as flammable especially if there is a presence of fire. Hence, women engineers will always have to be careful about what they wear to protect their body in case of those possibilities. For example, they will always need to wear rubber boots and plastic hats, so they cannot wear sandals or even shoes, every time they are on the oil platform.
Other than that, for me personally, hair is still considered as one of the fashion elements. When women engineers work at the best shipping company in Kemaman, they are recommended to have short hair or tie their hair up. Apart from how dangerous it can get, oil platforms are based in the middle of the sea, and these women are expected to work under the sun and in a large hot factory with oil processing. Most of the time, they are going to sweat, and the saddest part is that they have accepted that these problems are a part of their job. Therefore, I do not think if any one of us is that strong mentally, especially if we like dressing up, that this is a good option for us. Some women like their hair long and of course, without having to tie their hair. But providing marine solution Malaysia to people cannot be advisable to have long hair.
Last but as important, these women, especially young female engineers, hardly can explore their sense of fashion when they are working on the oil platform. Not saying that they cannot, but not while working on the oil platform, maybe they can during working in the office, but not on the field. With that reason, their confidence cannot be the same as many girls. As you can see, being fashionable tends to make us look good and feel good about ourselves. Therefore, somehow not being fashionable keeps their confidence level at a very low level, which leads to many other problems such as communication problems among the coworkers.
In conclusion, working as an engineer in one of the respectable jobs, and people really do look up to engineers. But when women decide to work as engineers, specifically in that field, they will have to consider a lot of things including these fashion challenges, because it can get tough and it is not going to be easy. But if you are willing to pursue your fashion as an engineer, go ahead and do, because I would not want anything to hold you back from chasing your dreams. At the end of the day, only you know what you want and what you can handle.
