Getting The Right Offshore Drilling Rig Job 5

UnCategorized Getting an offshore drilling rig job is relatively easier as compared to on land jobs in these recessionary times because of the job’s nature and a perpetual short supply of trained personnel. The current boom in the oil sector has encouraged the leading oil companies to explore more and more sites where workers, trained or untrained, are always welcome. This is likely to continue for the next two decades as eminent economists and investment fund experts have predicted. There are nine basic steps to get that "right" offshore drilling job. These are: *Finding the appropriate oil company through online job portals or press advertisements floated by the HRD departments of the former. However, for newcomers, online portals are not always helpful as they usually target individuals with experience. One needs to be on the lookout for press advertisements floated by medium and small oil companies in regional or local newspapers to recruit freshers. *Look for head hunting agencies that specialize in oil industry recruitments. You could also check out the Wilshire Stock Index if you aren’t interested in intermediaries. MSN, Google and Yahoo will also guide you on the oil multinationals as also the US-based ones. However, most smaller companies which don’t have web-sites may be overlooked. *After short listing the companies you wish to apply to, try and contact their HR manager by email or post and it’s always better to send your details both by post and email. After a week, give them a call to confirm whether they have received your details or not. *Try and compose your curriculum-vitae in such a manner so that it shows your employers what you can do for them. Also make it a point to understand what they want from their employees and draft your CV accordingly. *If called for an interview, refrain from giving monosyllabic answers. Rather, try and explain how significantly you can contribute towards the company’s growth. Also study the company’s background and nature of operations beforehand so that you don’t blank out when asked about the same. Since an interview is a two-way street, ask in details about the company’s financial conditions, future growth prospects and how you stand to gain from it. However, do remember that perseverance and patience pay in getting that "right job". If your first interview ends in failure, the last thing you should do is to lose heart. Rather, treat it as a practice session which will only hone your inter personal skills further and finally help you succeed. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
