What I wish I knew when I started in the industry…
That it’s fine if you don’t start with a major operator, working for a small consultancy meant that I was exposed to potentially much more of the industry than I would have been for an operator.
After a few years you focus on geology, geophysics or petrophysics and tend to spend the rest of your career doing that role. Very few companies offer geoscience roles, but some companies do support a change between disciplines.
