I have done a great deal of work with oil industry folks and one of the most apt experiences was when we sent a team of them to an escape room as a bonding experience.

They came back super fired up about how great they did, saying they set a new record. Turns out the escape room place had just forgotten to reset the locks after the previous group solved all the puzzles. So they just tried opening the final box, it opened immediately, and they all agreed that counted as a win.

I would never do an Escape Room, and having to do one for work would be even worse, so I really can't blame anyone that would take the easy way out on that one

Stephen Zagurski, a graduate student in geology at Rice University, said the timing of his coming graduation was “not perfect, far from it.”

“You have a lack of available positions and you have a huge talent pool and an abundance of graduates getting out of school,” he added. “It’s going to make opportunities to get into the industry that much harder.”

But Mr. Zagurski, 23, said the oil and gas industry will bounce back just as it has many times over the last century despite popular notions that the pandemic would permanently reduce energy consuming habits. “Demand is going to come back,” he said. “Let’s be honest here, how many things in our daily lives have some kind of a petroleum-based product in them.”

Mr. Zagurski has an internship with Roxanna Oil, a small company with managers who are his second cousins, and he has steadily been given greater responsibility.

He can probably join Roxanna full time after graduation, and he is confident that the market for young geoscientists and engineers will eventually pick up. If the oil industry does not rebound, he is also considering working in geothermal energy or environmental science or pursuing a doctorate. “Everyone is biding their time to see what will happen,” he said.
