yes, ......mental torture. I was once attached to TOTAL GAS and work in the gulf of Thailand. Beside the platform and the sea......u see nothing else. Good pay although but the work place, you must know how to take it.

why not pm her your friend email address?? i wont give out my resume to a stranger especially for a gal.................
firstly,
based on certain industry practices that i hold to, i dont just give out email addresses.
i am doing the person a favour by passing it along.
(for example, all head hunting companies function like this)

if the company wants to contact the potential, the company will do so.

secondly, i dont know the thread's starters gender. i dont have any business stalking people.

lastly, you are probably not working yet or have not been extensively in the job market.
You will be SO surprised but for your information, your personal resume may be so widespread and known to others(strangers) that you wont even believe it.

Am actually doing my thesis now in a project within the oil & gas industry and will be gradutaing in a few months time. I will be staying in the same industry I think and hoping to get some out field experience and exposure. Doesn't have to be permanently based, if its a job within the same industry but allows you training outfield that would be nice too. Doesn't have to be offshore, land based rigs or oil exploration engineering are also very enticing to me.

I am probably crazy but I like to go the route and path which is less travelled.

I presume Civil, Mechnical or Chemical Engineering field if they want to consider someone educated in Singapore.
However, Singapore educated folks may have a disadvantage when compared to those educated overseas.
Reason: Other countries do have Exploration, Geothermal, etc which are more relevant (IMHO)
