In a free market, oil and gas should be great career choice. But because they are forcibly being regulated into downsizing and bankruptcy for political reasons, I would not recommend it as a career path.
And if you decide to take this career path, at least choose some area that has transferable skills. Something like software or sales.
Because if at any point you become one of the thousands that are fired due to downsizing caused by regulation – then at least you can take majority of your knowledge with you.
But even better scenario is when you plan ahead and you actually choose a career where you don’t have to constantly expect to be fired.
A career where you’re always in demand regardless of the economy or regulations.
Historically, this career was sales but now there’s something even better.

It is the easiest because there are so many keywords that can bring visitors to a website but there is almost no competition.
The problem is, of course, how to find such keywords(?)
