damn dude...sorry to hear you're not happy. I would see if you were interested in a superintendent(if we were hiring), but doubt you'd want it.

Hope you find something you enjoy buddy!! :thumbsup:

Do you have Offshore Engineering, Piping Design, Structural, or Drafting experiance? If so, e-mail me your CV and I can put it forth. SBM / Atlantia / GustoMSC off Eldridge south of I-10. Like Mustang, we are in a big need for Piping Designers, Engineers and Steel Draftsmen.

Phil, I would hire you in a minute, but we need someone with experience like you said, or at least some certs. I would check Monster.com and Dice.com and see what you can come up with.

Here is an idea on the Course Pricing (http://www.ctrec.com/schedule/2007%20Course%20Schedule.pdf). Pick what you want mostly from here. (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/default.mspx)

Hurry up and get certified and rack up experience. :D We have two specialist positions open. But, there are some days that I warn people to stay far far away from the world of IT.

+100000000000000000x1000000000000 Im right behind you in that boat rowing as hard as i can, but seem to never get ANYWHERE!! Do we have holes in our boat, kinda feels like we are sinking...

Phil, the only thing I can think of that has great pay, benefits, and advancement is the oil field. The one thing you would have to get over, however, is the travel. Most of that would either be local to Texas or Gulf of Mexico. If you got on with a producer you would work something like 7 days out and be home for 7 days. If you got on with a field services company you would be on-call sometimes and could be out for several weeks at a time.

Anyway, the jobs that are out there include onshore and offshore drilling and production (roughnecks and roustabouts) and also the field services jobs such as logging and completions.

So, the companies hiring are all the major producers such as British Petroleum, Shell, ConocoPhillips, etc, and the field services companies such as Halliburton, Schlumberger, and Baker Hughes.
Once established, say after a few years, you could easily land a desk job here in Houston.

Just start visiting the websites of these companies and perform searches for certain terms, like roughneck...

Right or wrong, in the corporate world people w/o college degrees are usually walked on. I have personally seen decisions made to NOT reward or competitively pay the best (and hardest working) employees and the only reasoning was that they 'didn't have a college degree, so they weren't going to be able to easily find another job'.

There are plenty of high-paying non-corporate world jobs out there (you mentioned a couple). BUT if you do want to play in the corporate sandbox it is a very good idea to get some type of degree or at least specialized certifications. Neither or easy or cheap to get.

Not trying to bring anyone down, just being a realist. For the record most of the corporate world walks over EVERYONE. Sad fact is that the best way to move up is to move to another company.

Contractor's Motto: If you want a Raise, get another Job. Sad, but true. :(

Corporate Jobs in the Oilfield are very competitive by those who are degreed, but lack the experiance in the real world. Couple that with their inferiority complex, and it leads to competition in what I call, "Corporate Crawlers". With an MIT Masters Certification in Naval Arch Eng., and in being more certified than most I work with, the competition is still difficult. You must also get skill and / training in dealing with politics and personnel management. I did, and that in itself has made it much easier for me.

Remember, in not becoming discouraged, to seek the targeted diplomas first in the field you are interested in. (on the tech. side of things to get in the door and get started) Further training can come later as you work.

With the Market the way it is currently, and the projection of such for another 6 - 8 years, the pay for a Tech. Engineer is not much less than a Degreed one.:thumbsup:

The pay for field hands is really good, and since you can get on with a major, the benefits are good. Offshore work is what I would head for...lots of time off!!

At the bottom of which fiend type? Of the Rig in the field, the Shipyard Site, or in the Corporate Office?

I know several good recruiters in the area and can ask them for you. Send me an update CV and I'll call them up. Unfortunately, as I had said in the past, certifications do help a bunch. With the Market being the way it is right now, you may have some better luck then you did a year ago.

Hey Phil,

Sorry to hear about your crossroads looking for another career but i would recommend that you find an area that you are really interested in and zero in on working from the bottom of that industry and begin working and trying to get either certified or some kind of educational degree in that area. If you just try to go for a job that pays well then you might find yourself back in the same situation 5 years from now. Take advantage of the fact that although you are married you still have lots of flexibility with out kids, 30 year mortgage, etc.

good luck buddy
