RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
don't worry, just get there and start hitting the pavement. You'll get a job within a week. Don't expect to be put in a camp right away tough. But you might luck out. Out west, it's nothing like in Ontario. It's all about being friendly and chatting to people, you never know who the guy having a beer besides you at the bar can be. So always strike a conversation with guys everywhere. Guys in Alberta are pretty friendly and easy going. Hirings out there are done in a very informal way. None of the HR crap you see in Fucktario. You go there, talk to the manager/boss and if he likes you, that is if you're not drunk and or high and a retard, he'll hire you on the spot.

Here's a tip when talking to managers/bosses during "interviews" which look more like casual chats between 2 guys, is tell them that you're sick and tired of the office environment and all the crap that goes on inside of it, and that you're tired of being over taxed, under paid and over worked in Ontario. That's music to their ears. Smile

Best of luck man!
