LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT If you’re considering a job move or a career in oil and gas, you might be rethinking your options right about now… but a decision to leave the industry would be shortsighted and based on only half of the picture.
Last year, predictions of a downturn in oil prices were prominent as geopolitical conditions began to
change the dynamics of our industry; but few, if any, predicted that the price of oil might drop as quickly as we have seen in the past 12 months. The reaction to this downturn has been swift with many
organisations quickly announcing delays in projects and extensive layoffs or hiring freezes. In fact, a
recent Rigzone survey found that 65 percent of oil and gas global hiring managers experienced a loss of budgeted positions due to market volatility, and 65 percent also said this volatility would decrease their hiring plans in the next 6 months.
While companies may be making short-term decisions to reduce operating expenses and demonstrate fiscal responsibility, critical long-term talent needs are looming as many qualified professionals
Rigzone is proud to partner with candidates and recruiters to help them make the right connections. This
Career Guide provides an outstanding collection of articles and interviews that focus on all aspects of the downturn, providing companies with insights on how to win and retain the best talent in the industry and candidates with sound advice on how to remain essential.
The Rigzone team is focused on an accelerated schedule of product enhancements that have been
established through qualitative and quantitative research of our customers. We have set out to highlight
what our visitors value most by replacing distracting elements with modern, clean design. Our fresh look
