It's probably wise that your education has a pretty specific focus, it will get you to work faster. My degree can branch into a dozen different industrial careers, all demanding 5+ years of experience (which I don't have).
I should have just gone into nursing or something. That industry is always booming.
Mine can branch off into two categories, electrical (essentially a industrial electrician) or instrumentation. My city has the largest oil refinery on the eastern coast I believe (biggest in Canada), along with a bunch of other factories/plants, plenty plenty of jobs for this field (even for a small city). Nuclear, coal, bunch of other different power plants along with processing factories out the ass.
You'd probably find employment in my City quite easily i'd think. My course has 100% hire rate over the last 10 years, and starts around 32$/hr Canadian (out of school). But the learnin' curve has been steep, my school prides on the 100% figure, so they try and fail out a lot of students for the colleges reputation.
