What is the best field for engineering right now out of chemical, electrical, petroleum and sales? ?

Factor in everything not just salary. I want to work overseas for a few years. Also factor in normal work day conditions if possible and demand for the certain field. Thanks.

    Electrical is the most universal, you can go practically anywhere and get a job. Chemical and petroleum is more location specific, you need to go where the jobs are, not where you want.

    Chemical and petroleum are process industries, if a line goes down you will need to be there. Electrical you can get a lot more laid back jobs.

    chemical and electrical are much better than the other two.
