I'm looking for advice from people who either live in North Dakota or have relocated to North Dakota on how they located work in North Dakota.
I have looked online,but I haven't seen a lot of jobs on the usual job sites.
Nor do any of the papers that are online seem to have a number jobs advertised.

Are there a lot of jobs in ND....where are they located....and how easiliy are the obtained?
I have a job currently...but I'm always looking.
Any advice/assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on what kind of work you are looking for. Nearly everyone in Williston is hiring.

Yes NickyP406...there are still plenty of jobs in North Dakota...not sure what roughneck10 is referring to. If you can't get hired somewhere in ND, especially western ND in the oil industry...there is some reason for it. CDL's are in big demand right now, as well as rig hands, and service company hands, etc.... JobServiceND has around 1,100 openings just in the Williston area alone. (I'm sure they are not ALL oil, but a majority of them are) ND just hit 130 rigs...which is a record...this time last year, there were only around 47...so things are still going strong in western ND.

Default How to find work in Fargo?

Why dont you just go to youtube and type in: "black pimps set up bussinesses in Fargo". Anyone can come here and find work, including pimps. If this ******* can find work, why cant you? I cant beleve they are allowing this man to operate his bussiness here.

I would be careful about this info....as in the past there have been two posts by someone who links to this man's youtube site....it is more fiction than reality. I would contact Fargo or W Fargo PD if you have concerns or see if they have heard of this person.

Are there any white collar jobs for people with college degrees? I'm under the impression that North Dakota is pretty much a blue collar jobs state.

What kinds of requirements in terms of training and experience would be required to obtain one of the blue collar oilfield jobs? Are they all physically intensive and thus only workable by people under age 30?

If you don't have a well-paying position waiting for you, stay away. The only way to get better than $30k/year (without working construction) is through connections. This is just about the most passive-aggressive place in the country (world?), which means you are doomed if you don't have the right last name or know the right people.

There are quite a few white collar jobs, especially for CPA's, doctors, nurses, social work, engineers, etc. It all depends on your skills.
