FOTB: Persistence pays off in the oil fields

Email

WILLISTON -- Twenty-year-old Justin Day moved to North Dakota with no oil field experience.

A month later, Day has a job that could pay him six figures this year.

But getting that job took research. And a lot of persistence.

Day, of Salem, Ore., is trained as a phlebotomist but couldn't find steady work at home.

He knew of someone who worked in North Dakota's Oil Patch, and he began researching opportunities.
