/biz/ I need your help, what are you some realistic options for a new canadian engineer grad?

>be 22, senior in chemical engineering, minor in applied math graduating in may 2016
>live in Canadian oil patch, literally no one is hiring atm (me and my whole class are jobless)
>1 year of internship experience in an oil pipeline company
>have some student debt, but have plenty saved up to pay it off


Realistically, I would have job already lined up if this was 2014, but oil prices have really fucked up my plans. I've been thinking about possible alternatives to engineering, possibly consulting, possibly some business analyst position. I'm willing to move and I'm willing to do anything to start my career. What should I do /biz/? I would prefer not doing anymore schooling or not much more. Is there anything I can do? Will employers handle engineers for general analyst positions?

I feel kind of screwed desu, I did everything /pol/ said, get a good STEM engineering degree with decent G.P.A and experience. Was it all a meme?

why not go somewhere away from the oil patches to get a job

Are you the unemployed Canadian engineer i was talking to on /fit/?

I think he was either petroleum engineer or chem

Moving away is scary, I have never lived by myself. Also don't want to deal with shit like getting vias's.

>>965493
nope

>>965506
there's jobs in other parts of Canada if you didn't know. I'm sure you could find something in Calgary or Edmonton, if not then Vancouver and Toronto are available.

falling for the age old college major tier bait

Get a masters.

May as well wait out the oil collapse in academia and invest more into your education.

As a person with both Accounting and IT background who works at a Big 4, I can tell you I agree Accounting is in the Meh Tier.

How?

Accounting with a professional designation is the easiest path to a $100k+ salary. Can you please enlighten me as to what is so "meh" about it?

Ah, the old entitled kid whinge.

Listen mate, you're fodder for the booms and the busts. Right now it's a bust, so you get nothing.

During the booms, sure you'll get your six figures once the per diems and the mileage adds up, but it'll be thankless and you'll live in a hole like Fort Mac.

The only ones who get the steady jobs are the ones with the passion. The ones who aim high but mean it and love their subject.

Good luck

Geology okay ? that's only because of the boom bust lifestyle.

Geology is ok. Geography? Kek.

Why is IT considered such a low tier career path? I don't even have a degree and I make 100k doing enterprise. If I had a degree it'd be 125k.

There no other field where so many can make so much money with so little formal training. It's nuts. And everyone thinks nursing is a better choice for some ducked reason.

Geologist here. We (my profession and society as a whole) would be pretty boned without geography people. Most of them tend to go into GIS which is just modern map making. All the field data in the world that's gathered doesn't mean shit if someone can't make sense of it.

sage for stupid thread

Why are linguistics and Geography ranked so high?

I took a class in Cultural Geography and we had to write a paper about a song we attributed to a certain place, and I wrote my paper on how I attributed the song "lifestyle" to the bus I took to campus, because the ghetto bus driver would play it every sing day.

Go into water treatment, there are places for chemical engineers other than the oil and gas industry.

If Boeing wants to design a new seat, will they hire a mechanical engineer who had a preference/background in aerospace, or an aerospace autist who can only understand and speak to planes?

Which project is Boeing likely going to assign to the newbie, the chair project or the fuselage?

>>965541
Not him, but my cousin graduated at tOSU pre-2008 crash with a 3.2 GPA with plenty of experience, but he still needed a Master's for the field, I don't even want to know what the field looks like now
