ThatSkiierKidd64woah woah, what do you mean about the oil geology career? I'm on track to become a geophysicist and work with oil companies.
You could be fine just always be ready to adapt your career path. I guess my job is technically “non-essential” although keeping the wellbore in payzone seems pretty essential to me to maximize output per well. But when oil dropped from $100+ to pretty flatlined around $60 for years, companies gotta cut costs to keep shareholders happy somehow.
We live in Denver, so definitely have our reasons to stay. We’re pretty anchored with house, wife’s career, and all the potential careers for me. She’s from Oregon I’m from Minnesota so it’s a happy medium and she has a decent amount of family here like cousins and her brother lives in Vail.
I’m sure there’s a job out there that could do me fine maybe but just sucks when you had the perfect job then gotta settle with less
