    It is a common job here in south Louisiana. Offshore rigs require lots of support, the actual rig workers, engineers, catering, etc. They work 7 and 7, some even longer shifts. Easy way for a single individual to save some major money, as you can't spend when on shift. American workers on overseas rigs make even more money, longer shifts, some tax breaks.
    But rough on relationships

    If you want to be a teacher I'd look into Teach for America if you are in the USA and that English degree is from a decent school.
