RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
going to university would be ideal IF you could go to university here in canada or the US, if your in engineering at even a shitty school in canada you can get an offer of work in the oilsands. I go to a pretty good school here with a few friends in engineering, the oil companies here come and spend insane money trying to attract students, buying them dinners, drinks, etc. at expensive restaurants. They're telling me you can easily get guaranteed 2-3 offers from oil companies at 60k+, realize that they're engineering working 35-40 hrs a week in a office. After a few years in the biz you can easily re-negotiate yourself into management or just get paid a lot more.
