now do we rally have to talk down to the choice of others as far as what they chose to do. because the CE job market is terrible right now while Mine engineers have a steady surplus of job openings each year. there are pros and cons to each. some people are just better for some over others

''We can live without petroleum? That's cute''.
-Petroleum Engineer.

Maybe on a long term, but I really dislike it when people say that you could live without oil tomorrow like nothing happened, or when they tell me that we will run out of oil in 10 years. Even if we someday ran out of it, we'd still have work finding water wells afterwards.

Also, working on an oil rig is fun.

Since you seem to know stuff about being a P.E., I have to ask: is there any chance of me getting rig work with a Chemical Engineering degree?

As far as I know, you can work on a rig, if you're willing to spend some years working at the low-tier jobs (rustabout or roughneck). After that, you could become a driller, and they earn very good money. Not all drillers studied that, they just worked hard to get there.

You can also apply to your career and work at making the drilling mud, and that job is very in-demand. Drilling mud is one of the most important things for the rigs, it has to be handled with care to not contaminate it.
You can either work on land or offshore, where you have to check the mud properties that might be needed during the drilling phase. Of course, working offshore will always look better in a resumé, so even if there are Mud Engineers, a Chemical Engineer is just as good, even better sometimes.

Wouldn't you just use a hydrogeologist?

Nah, I'll dispel his illusions! I don't think that anyone who was looking to find sustainable groundwater supplies would choose a petroleum engineer over a hydrogeologist. There are probably more petroleum engineers about, but the large-scale drilling technology they use is a world away from the average water-well rig, which are usually transported on low-loaders or mounted on specially adapted lorries. PEs would also have to learn to use the software associated with groundwater modelling, e.g. FEFLOW, MODFLOW, and the associated terminology.

civil engineer here with a masters in structural. i have very little experience. i really graduated at the worst time in 2008 and with masters in 2012. nobody wants me because i have no history of working experience and i can't get menial jobs because i'm over qualified and i'll just leave them for a better job. i'm getting depressed and i just want to sleep all the time or die.

Know them feels, I graduated with mechanical in 2014 right when oil bottomed out. The position I thought I had lined up ceased to exist and I didn't have much luck afterwards due to lack of experience, almost everything in my region is tied to petrochem. I recently started a construction materials technician job for a geotechnical firm just so I can be somewhat in my industry for experience. The pay isn't great but there's so much construction going on I can get plenty of o.t. every week.
