I know times are extremely tough right now..
But where are the best oil engineer/drilling manager jobs located at currently?
For someone with 30 years experience.
And was once a VP of a petroleum company.
This isn't me obviously, but am just curious....where the best countries are for this type of job right now?
As the title asks...Best paying jobs in Australia and the world and be specific e.g not engineer...civil engineer or drilling engineer etc.. Could you also include how much they earn as well and if applicable the hours they have to work a week. Also, the degrees that you need to get a job in that industry/career.
I'm currently a college student studying engineering. My plan is to join the Coast Guard Reserve during my summer break after my second year of school and then attempt OCS after graduating to become an officer in the Reserve. I have two questions; will being a reserve in the coast guard seriously affect the amount of time I can devote to my education and will being an officer in the reserve help or hinder me in finding an engineering job? I'm not talking like an hourly wage job that doesnt require an education, I'm talking about a corporate administration/management job.
My undergrad is in Mechanical engineering and I hold an MBA.
This isn't political or anything, just asking if you guys don't mind sharing.
I do like my job as a drilling engineer.
Hi everyone, so right now i'm in first year engineering, and i was thinking of becoming a petroleum engineer. Problem is i find the petroleume ngineering degree at my school is too limited. I heard that people with chemical engineering and mechanical engineering degrees can also work as petroleum engineers. For example, i met a couple of drilling engineers that have mechanical engineering degrees. Is that true? also, how easy would mechanical engineer be able to find a job?? like if i just graduated without work experience, let's say after 4 years, hopefully economy will get better, how long wouldi it take for me to find job? k thanks.
I have 8 years experience in Drlg Engineering. What city must I decide to reside with my family to ensure I enjoy a better Schooling, Accomodation/Housing and community life in Canada. What can we do inorder to settle down to a good life in Canada?
I want to move to a state where the winters are warmer than in Chicago. I'm also thnking about Arizona, Texas, and Florida, but I'm thinking that they are too hot in the summer. Also, I want to look for engineering jobs (specifically civil engineering) in the future. I'd also like to move to a good-sized city that is near the ocean.
Which state out of VA and NC would you recommend?
Oh yeah, this is a good question: Which states have the most jobs for engineers?
I am making a resume and the only experience I have is working for my uncles engineering company.
At this job I did everything from driving a rock truck, drilling in curb stoppers, counting trucks, filling gas, telling people where they are needed, filling out paperwork, driving from site to site making sure everything is okay and all other little things that were needed for me to do.
What is an appropriate job title for this job?
I am a freshman and I have wanted to become an astronomer since I was 7 years old and I love science and math. Now my question is what are the different types of jobs are their in astronomy, and what do they do? My second question is what classes and education do I need to take to become an astronomer, and do they vary with the type of astronomer I choose to become?
Can you still get all the same jobs as an active duty soldier?
Will they make you relocate, even if they have the job you enlist for in my state?
Can you join the Army National Guard if you were previously a Marine and would you keep the same rank or would you start at E-1?
So there is an opportunity to get a job as a field engineer, i saw some videos on youtube of the drilling procedure, and it was heavy and dirty. So should i expect some heavy duty work like the drilling guys? Or is it more like a surveyor work on the rig? Could you please explain the task and the daily job, and can i expect after few years of experience to get an office job?
I am considering getting my bachelors in engineering but am unsure as of which type. Any background info would be helpful. Thank you!
Besides the travelling to remote areas, why is petroleum engineering a high paid job? Thanks.
Drilling Rigs are slow right now most of the people in my part of the US depend on this type employment. It's been down to long. Anybody got a clue what we're all gonna do?
I am a California resident and want to work as a petroleum engineer. There are no PetE undergrad programs in CA. I don't have the funds to move to Texas for a few years to get a petroleum engineering degree at one of the schools there. However, there are many ABET accredited engineering universities here in CA and I can complete a bachelors in mechanical engineering here. If I graduate, get my ME degree, and intern in a major oil company for 3-4 months, would I be able to get an upstream petroleum engineering position (drilling & completions, production, or reservoir) or would the companies hiring me look at my ME degree and restrict me to a mechanical engineering or facilities engineering job? If they would hire me for the PetE job, would they pay exactly the same as someone also fresh out of school but with a petroleum engineering degree?
I know these are specific issues ultimately up to the whims of these companies but try to answer based off of what you've seen and know if you are in the industry.
Thanks big time.
Outside of the military, what civilian career, regardless of education level, requires that professional to do the most word wide travel?
I imagine that these would do a lot:
Oil drilling speculative consultants with Chemistry degrees.
Department of State Civil Service civilians working at Embassies.
International Law attorney maybe.
Doctor or surgeon doing volunteer work for disadvantaged countries.
Commercial Airline Pilot (not an option, but im mentioning it).
What am I missing?
I am not Canadian, but graduate of petroleum and natural gas engineering from college. I have been working as health and safety engineer for 2 years.
Everywhere I look is just an advertisement to join a job board or something. What qualifications would I need and if I don't have any experience are they any good entry level ways in?
I'm trying to figure out how to get a job in the oil fields i have no experience and no degrees or anything i'm fresh out of high school and around how much will i make?and were would i apply?
I got offered a job for an oil company as rig technician. They offered the job because I can speak fluent Indonesian language. Someone said I can be making about 80K a year with an overtime. I'm about 7 classes away from finishing my degree in mechanical engineer from UT San Antonio. I know that an entry level engineer only make about 40k a year. With this bad economy is so hard finding an engineering jobs. I have a friend who graduated last semester and still couldn't find a job. I'm so confuse right now lol
