Finding Electrician Offshore Jobs

I have yet to find any indication of this happening inside offshore oil rig and related industries.

2) The National government moratorium, which was a direct result of the Horizon disaster last April, caused the layoff of more than 12, 000 offshore rig people. This is turn, caused a trickle down job losing some 20, 000 even more workers in support assignments, such as supply together with crew boat personnel, providing services, casing companies, helicopter companies and also other companies that provided special services for any rigs.

Working offshore, because of the hard, isolated and hostile job environments, etc., is no easy occupation. During typical times, turnover is high as compared to land based jobs. In better times people with no prior experience might get hired relatively easy into beginner's offshore positions, where we can be properly trained inside procedures of working on the rigs, boats, etc.

However, since we are not necessarily in normal times, the option of entry level jobs is a an all time small. I'm not telling you this to discourage people. If your dream job is focusing on an offshore drilling rig somewhere, I say go for it with all the gusto you can gather. My intention in writing this article is to give you a realistic idea what you are up against.

People who search for jobs in this industry fall into 2 categories: 1) Personnel with prior oilfield / offshore experience and 2) Personnel without the need of prior oilfield / ocean going experience. People with a relevant trade, even if with no prior oilfield or offshore experience (which include welders, diesel mechanics, crane affiliates, warehouseman, medic, sand blasters and painters, etc), have better risks of getting employed on the rigs than of those with white collar experience in areas such as real estate, financial services, etc.

2 colleges of thought in trying to get offshore employment:

1) Send your resume to a listing of industry employers and interviewers.

2) Visit each company personally (individually) research their scope of operations, mission affirmation, etc. and apply for all jobs you feel you are qualified to do. If you are entry level, then submit your resume (even if there are no entry level jobs posted) because entry level positions are seldom advertised these days. This is subject to change when you need it but for now they're just not being advertised.

This is my thinking on that: I have never been that you promote the "resume blasters. " They are on multilple web sites, and have a great marketing strategy. Blast your resume to every one the relevant companies at once, saving yourself hours together with hours of individual cv posting. To the starter job seeker, this may seem quite appealing; mainly as a result of "instant gratification" mentality some of our culture has imposed on us.

Selecting a job is a job alone, and this includes finding an offshore job. Every recruiter I've at any time talked to (and I've talked to a couple of in my time) comes with said resume blaster sites are great for the site owner, but of little use to your serious job seeker, together with here's why:

1. When the internet was in its infancy, blaster sites had some merit. Those days are over, any email address which is connected to a resume blaster site has been used and used concise of being non practicable.
