hey guys
im just wandering, im 16 and want to follow a diving career. i dont really want a scuba career, because the get bad pay. (you cant blame me with all the rising costs of petrol and food) i was wandering about a HAZMAT diver or an oil rig diver, but im not too sure what they do? what kind of tasks do they preform and what is their salary like?

i know that they are both really dangerous jobs but i just want a job that enjoy and can brag to my mates about hahah

any info about the jobs would be verry aprecied
thanks guys!

If you are truly passionate about the job, then you probably won't mind how much you earn. Don't get hung up about the pay. Although it is a legitimate worry to be concerned about the rising costs.

My question is, why did you post in the hunting section?
