red,Greetings from Saudi Arabia! It's been awhile since I "spoke" to you.Don't worry about not having seen any geology since 1995; the rocks haven't changed. Much ;-). Very few geologists I know have actually looked at rocks recently, anyway (the last two groups with which I've been involved, including my current gig, are rare exceptions). Most are playing with mapping packages, interpreting 3-D seismic, doing image log analysis, petrphysics, building digital cross sections, or in my case, a little of all of these, plus describing core! But Aramco's special that way...I'd think you could parlay your IT experience into something eminently useful at any number of major or minor oil companies (including Aramco, BTW. Rejig your resume, and e-mail it to www.jobsataramco.com , unless you have no desire to visit - or revisit? - the Middle East.). Data management is a major headache at most companies, so maybe you could bill yourself as "Geophysical Data Management Guru" or "Geophysical IT Consultant."The need for consultants out there is great, as long as you can pitch your special skills to solve their problems (unless you're one of those truly gifted individuals that can identify a serious problem that a particular compnay doesn't even know it has, and then can offer an expensive (and more importantly, expenses-paid) solution!Oilyoilyfool@email@example.com
