OIL & GAS
A career in the oil field is a completely different lifestyle from other careers. The working conditions are much harsher, more cramped and isolated than in most other careers, but the workers are increasingly well-paid for their efforts. Oil rigs can be found on both land and at sea, and are located all over the world. Oil rig workers work 12-hour shifts; many work for two weeks on the rig and then return home for two weeks. When the shift is over, workers can go on the Internet, watch movies, play video games, fish, or work out at the on-board gym. Though the working conditions are rough these rigs can feel like a second home and the variety and quality of the food is high.
