Career Focus
That Guy

Carthage, MO

#1 Feb 9, 2013
I was hoping I could get a second expert opinion on this. I am currently employed by an environmental consulting firm as a field tech. I am planning on returning to the school I never finished to get my BS in geology. It looks to me that oil and gas pays the best, but environmental is much more secure. One of the senior geologists I work with says that oil and gas will tank soon and flood the market and that I would do well to secure a geology position in environmental, before this happens. He also says that hydro is the future as aquifers and other fresh water become more and more scarce. Just wondering what my best options would be for long term career plans.
