How long should I expect to be away from home as a pipe welder?

I'm looking to become a pipe welder and I was wondering how much time I should expect to be working in a day and if I should be prepared to travel like most other oilfield jobs. #welder #pipe-welder #oilfield #westtexas #texas #welding #oil

Do you see a lot of cross-over in the areas of expertise of people with different Earth Science degrees?

There are many different degrees relating to Earth Science, like Geophysics, Applied or Near-Surface Geophysics, Geochemistry, Geology, pure Earth Science, etc, and different colleges offer different ones. I know that there are technically differences between them, but I also know that college degrees can often prepare students for a variety of careers. Do you often see people with different degrees working on the same projects in similar professions? Have you ever been limited in any way by the degree path you chose? Do certain degrees within Earth Science better prepare students for certain activities and responsibilities than others do? #environmental-science #earth-science #nature #geology #geophysics #oil #hydrologist #geochemistry

Is Petroleum Engineering a viable career?

Let's be honest, the oil industry is pretty rocky right now, should I consider a career in the field if I think it might be unreliable? #engineering #career-choice #oil
