    Texas has plenty of Oil work don't they? There's a bunch of gigs down there to take a look into. Not sure what the industry in Alberta is looking like currently. I'm unsure if it has changed from above.

    Girlfriends dad works for Arc Resources out in Edmonton, been kicking the idea of going to work there but I'm not sure I want to leave my life here behind... Really interesting benefits though.

    yes texas has a lot but its pretty much start at the bottom on anything unless you know somebody to get you in the door in a higher than bottom of the bucket job. I make 35/hr at my current plant I cant leave this job for such a big drop in pay... I mean im willing to take a cut to know it will pay off but not that much lol..

    im only 26 so I can put in some time in a company and willing to learn.

    Want work in Calgary right now? If you're a skilled interior contractor, you can make 800$+ a day installing tiles, plywood, and putting up walls. The floods caused an immense amount of damage and contractors from everywhere are killing themselves to get there first and get the contracts.

    One of my neighbors is there right now and has made more in the past two months than he has in the previous 10 months.

A couple guys I met through tuning cars I ended up hiring and they will make $200k this year so the potential is there but it's hard work and sacrifice no one is looking to give hand outs and if you're not performing a pink slip will come your way pretty quick.
    Damn, that's a nice pay schedule, what type of work do you do?
