RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
As a graduate Environmental Engineer I certainly hope there are relevant opportunities for me.

However, *for those of you considering going to Australia*, note that the industry is on a DECLINE and it is actually not that easy to get a job out in Western Australia even in the mines at this point. They really try to be self-sufficient and not hire foreigners. Secondly, getting the visa is a pain in the ass, most of you will have to pay $3000 for the typical working visa (unless you convince them to sponsor you, which you better have some experience for). If I don't get into grad school I'll be going to Perth instead so I'll make sure to keep you guys updated on my front.
.

The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.
