If you have a job that gives you regular access to children of vulnerable adults, you will usually be DBS checked, in which case a conviction will show up. Most schools will have a zero tolerance to 'intent to supply', and I suspect so would most other organisations, unless charities involved in substance abuse etc - but if you are after the money, you won't be working there!
Financial and legal employers usually have strict ethical codes, and getting stricter all the time. If you were already in the role, a very low end 'intent to supply' conviction might keep you in role, but I think it is very doubtful you could start a career with that conviction.
You need to do more basic research on careers, you can get paid just as well in engineering as you can in many other careers, and for less 'work' in terms of working hours and with more diversity than schlepping to a city office for 30 years.
