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
Should I stay in the oilfield service industry or make a career change?
The oil industry is full of uncertainty and requires me to live in places I would rather not (North Dakota/West Texas). Money can be very good. Should I stay in it for the long haul or take the leap into a different industry? Currently a general manager of a $25M/year oilfield service business. Enjoy my current position and feel confident about my future with current employer, but I want to be prepared for an uncertain future. I have a bachelor's degree in accounting. I have also partially completed an MBA. #oilfield #energy #careeradvice #careermove #business
How hard is working on your own having a rig already?
My name is Anahi, I am 18 years old with 4 (highschool) years of welding experience. I am currently working on getting my certificates. As a girl, I wonder if it is viewed differently by employers and if working on your own is really a good choice. #welding #career #certificates #oilfield
