RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
First off, thanks for taking the time to post all that great information. I know a lot of members from this site will get a lot out of that.

Second, my background:

- I'm a US Citizen
- I've got a bachelor's degree in business & economics
- Most jobs I've taken since graduating (in 2006) have been labor intensive, however, none have been in a specific trade. I suppose the most relevant work I've done is some auditing for the auto industry.
- I presently work for an airline, so I could easily travel up there to 'check it out'

So, my question is, would I be qualified to get a blue collar job in the oil fields? If not, would my background possibly qualify me for a white collar job helping to run the business in the oil fields?

I'm curious as to what type of opportunity I'd have to make some serious money here. I doubt I'd spend an eternity up there, although it would be nice to be somewhere that appreciates hockey as much as I do. Course, I suppose I am in one of the two US cities that actually does like hockey, but our employment rate is atrocious, and I need better options.
