RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Hey guys one thing I'd like to stress out about the job search is its best to go and apply in person when the office opens. Meaning get to the offices of the places you want to work at around 9am. Don't go applying in the afternoon, because its rare that they'll have people with decision making power there. Often it'll just be secretaries who take your resume, sometimes they can help you and give you information, however meeting with supervisors or operation managers is much more important as face time is 1000x more important than calling or emailing a resume. Also don't go in applying around lunchtime because almost no one is there. I think this is even more important getting entry level gigs.
