Prospects for everyone on the petroleum industry are pretty dismal right now and
look to remain so for quite a while. Everyone is down-sizing, cutting-back and
laying off.

This hits the writer in two ways:

* There's limited hiring and many qualified applicants.

* Documentation and training are amongst the first *luxuries*
to be cut back (and they are --sort of-- luxuries when there
are few new products to write about or new recruits to write for).

Consultant has become the industry euphemism for unemployed and there's always
a*consultant* willing to do the job cheaper than a qualified freelancer.
Everyone (as you've probably heard) knows how to write and this includes
thousands of unemployed geologists and engineers!

The best business for a geologically trained writer is Environment Remediation.
They put far more time, effort and money into moving paper than dirt!
