This webinar will share ideas and lessons learned on how to sustain your career through low and high oil prices, be it a technical or business path. Once there is an understanding of the oil and gas business cycle, then a professional can anticipate the skills, experience and knowledge to acquire in the good times to better ride out the "hard times" which are a normal part of our business.
