RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
I would say check out the instrumentation job. Haul truck driving is good paying and looks cool but it's not a very specialized skill (many women even do it in Fort Mac). With haul truck driving you're options are limited so where they use that type of equipment and down the line you might not want to live in those places or stay in camp. With the instrumentation trade you have so many options in where you want to work and it's a lot more specialized than driving a big dump truck. Also in Australia some sites are experimenting with haul trucks that have an auto pilot type function. So that job could be outsourced in the next 5-10 years.
