RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Scotian, you're not the only blue collar guy on here. I worked on and off as a carpenter and tiler for nearly 8 years. I worked at a BMW dealership, as a taxi driver for a year and in a bread factory before landing n office job as a (assistant) buyer. I got lucky on that one.

I would be interested in a high paying job like this. Do you by any chance know if they hire foreigners. I'm Dutch, we have good relationship with Canada since we many Dutch families emigrated to Canada in the 50' and 60's.

I've heard that working in the mines of Perth/Australia makes similar mad paper but they have strict laws on people above the age of 30.

Anyway a +1 from me.
