RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Hi Scotian,

great info.

I'm a Canadian citizen with a Bach in Econ, and a certificate in occupational health and safety (but no experience related to that field). I worked some admin jobs here in the past and now I have a career in sales finance.

Curious to know if I could still learn a trade up there at my age (27) or if it would be easier to find a job based on my past experience (finance/sales/admin)? Will the Health and Safety Cert will come in handy or is it useless? I'm pretty much tapping out of Toronto (tired of these hipsters and the wages are garbage in relation to the living expenses) and I figure the Oil Sands are the place to make a quick legal buck to pay off some debts and learn valuable skills. I've only worked office jobs my whole life however I'm in relatively good shape.
