I have undergrad degree in business but am thinking of doing masters in petroleum engineering (I have enough physics and calc courses to get in I asked already) should I go for business job or engineer job or trade job, what pays best. Will I get hired in engineering if I have no experience and just the degree? My grandfather had 4 oil rig in his country and I use to supervise it so I could fudge my resume a little bit. What should I do, I will take whatever job pays the most. I had a geology professor who worked in oil sands and claimed he made 800k a year, was he just blowing smoke or is this for real and we was like only 40.

So do you want to be a crane operator, study petroleum, do a business job, do an engineering job, work in the trades, or be a geologist? You mentioned wanting to do all of them so don't even know what exactly you are after
