well, my 63 weeks of EI eligibility ended, I haven't found work. I'm still technically running my own business, but that business doesn't make any money. As always, I feel like I'm close to closing a few deals, which would put the business at least in a neutral situation, but we shall see.
Overall, from the people I have spoken to, it does seem like a small number of people are getting hired, and the attitude in the industry has improved, but I don't think we're going to see everyone back to work in 2017, at least not in O&G jobs. Companies are very reluctant to add to headcount that they spent two years reducing.
Overall, I'm really lucky that my financial situation is pretty stable and mostly sustainable. I know so many people who are in worse shape.
Make fun of me in the 2017 Tow Rig thread!
