European by the way, so no "just work at an oil rig" memes please

No trades are good, because once you get into that manual labour lifestyle, you'll construct your own glass ceiling. Hang out with upholsterers and you'll end up thinking like them.

White collar is better because the jobs are so dull that they are almost interchangeable, which means that you have a sense of mobility. Your company is also much more varied and less blinkered in their worldview.

By company I mean companions, not the business entity you work at. Though I guess it also applies. I don't think Trump's welders are ever likely to run into him. A Trump Org accountant, on the other hand, lives inside the castle, not outside with the peasants.

What are some decent white collar jobs? For comparison I dropped out of finance, so accounting and the like isn't really my world (to say the least)

How do you get a job at an oil rig? I understand the whole oil industry is at a low right now but it may rise this year, possibly...and if so, how do I hop on to the train and work at an oil rig?

Graphic design, marketing, copywriting, that sort of thing. I'd advise you to bone up on your Dale Carnegie; he's cheesy but wise.

Teaching is approachable, but if you want promotions rather than a fixed position, you need a job where you talk to your equals or superiors about whatever project you're working on, and do it regularly. By contrast, teachers spend most of their time standing in a room full of people whose good opinion does not affect their salary.

Tutors have it better, because they can work independently, and are often hired directly by their students - who can recommend them to friends, meaning doing a good job directly affects their pay.

Nothing is worse than being an unrewarded drone working in the back room.

Right now health care professions are the best option.
At least in germanic countries

They take even people who can't speak german, english or french is enough.

That's mainly nurses. Healthcare is a huge field.
Don't get me wrong, it's not for me, but if you can into anatomy/biology type studies and are somewhat empathetic, there's many opportunities.

rofl you are in a world of hurt if you go that way. closed forums and ripoff seminars will be your only reliable source.
