    Default ExtraSlow got a job - For reals yo.

    Hey guys, some of you have been following my employment journey from petroleum engineering, to unemployment, self employment, car rental and a few dead-end paths as well (IT support, network design and a railway). I truly want to thank the many of you who offered me advice, leads, coffee, introductions and even the one beyonder who offered me a survival job.

    However, I just started a new position at an oilfield service company doing applications engineering and sales support. It's similar in concept to some positions I've had in the past, b ut what really makes this one special is that I truly feel that a) I can help this company in a way their current people can't and b) I think this company has some technology that really sets it apart from it's competition.

    Anyone who follows me on LinkedIn will see my update there in a day or two, and anyone who wants to meet up, I'll buy the coffee this time!
    Bring on the double meat subs!

    To answer a couple of questions:
    1) Was this from the yellow shirt? YES, the yellow shirt campaign at the oil show directly lead to a discussion with the hiring manager, an in-person interview, and a very quick job offer.
    2) Does this mean the Canadian oil and gas industry is heating back up? NO, the outlook is still very weak in the near-term, but as always, the longer term prospects are strong. I personally don't think we'll ever have the same total petroleum employment in Alberta that we once did, but the industry itself will survive and thrive, I firmly believe that.
    3) are you going to buy a bunch of stupid crap now? MAYBE, I do need a new laptop for work, and a few other things in the short term. Probably a new truck, but I'm not sure how soon that's happening.

    Coffee only for tire-kickers. Flames games are for closers.

    Buy on rumour, sell on news. Anyway, it's not publicly traded. Although, maybe your people want to buy a chunk of it?
