Well the IT company I work for are closing their Dallas office at the end of this month, so I've been looking for further work. There are various options available so it isn't a complete disaster. I have two possible sources of short-term part-time contract work, I have an emergency fund, I have the option of a 'free' MBA (all the work, but no fee except taxes), etc.

I do feel like a bit of a change, so the MBA has its attractions.
However, a local civil engineering firm is advertising for a geologist.
If it is anything like the UK, such a post probably pays quite a bit less than IT. I'm tempted to apply. My resume would need a bit of rejigging - emphasise my geo experience (both degrees, bona fide FGS, my IT coding has been mainly for geophysical applications, running the geology conference on cix.co.uk, etc) rather than the current IT bias.

So what is it like? I feel like I would be inexperienced having not studied any geology seriously since 1995.
