This might be a bit off topic, but what does the typical engineer make down there? I'm 4 hours from the infamous oil sands, and the amount of money they pay for me to do QC up there is legitimately insane. Every thing else sucks, but yeah.I'm pretty sure that we have quite a few engineering positions open. PM me and I'll send you some contact info.
I'm still 2 and a half years away from my degree. Just a wanna be at this point.
