One of the most often asked questions is how much can someone make if they pack up and move to North Dakota’s oil field. Well, for the time being, it is pretty unbelievable. With only a high school education, or even less, you can make substantial amounts of money, with excellent benefits, working for oil and oil field service companies in entry level positions. There are literally thousands of unfilled jobs available in North Dakota.

Why hasn’t everyone moved there you ask? Is it too good to be true? Well, most people don’t want to believe it’s true or they just don’t want to relocate to North Dakota. Make no mistake, it is not a gravy train. It is hard work in the cold and in the hot weather. Long hours, and thankless tasks. The benefits are outstanding pay, and flexible work schedules such as two weeks on and two weeks off.
