Looking for an Entry Level Position in the Offshore Oil & Gas Industry:

If you’re currently working a dead-end job without the ability to get ahead and you’re motivated to find a job offshore, then you probably want to start as soon as possible. But sometimes, even if you try real hard, you just can’t land that job you desire. With any application you get the same answer ‘Sorry, but you have no experience’.

Even if you’re the best welder, painter or scaffolder there is, even if you are extremely motivated to start at the bottom as roustabout or green hand, if you want to commit, work hard and give it all you got: You still get a ‘No’ as an answer. Then what can you do to turn your luck around?

There are multiple ways to get into the Offshore Industry. The easiest way is to be introduced by a friend, family member or a relative. Being introduced by someone who is already in the Industry really has it’s advantages. All you have to do is not to harm that relationship by letting him or her down at a later stage by messing up your work or by not doing your job. If you mess up, you will inevitably also hurt their reputation.

Another possibility is to apply for jobs at companies that work Onshore. Yes, you may not have known, but Oil and Gas is also being extracted and produced on Land rigs. And they have the same job positions like roustabout, roughneck, welders and so on. Positions Onshore, are equal to the positions Offshore.

If you get experience at an Onshore oilfield or gas extraction company, it’s much easier to move from a Land rig to an Offshore rig. And when you’re working via a recruiter, they might be able (and have the connections) to help you make that step. Once you’re in – you’re in!

Wanting to work Offshore creates opportunities, and by keeping your eyes open you will get closer to that desired job: a position Offshore.

      Maybe you didn’t notice, but this is a website blog with articles and information about working offshore. This is not a company website, there are no vacancies, and no recruiter will come here to check for applicants.

      Sorry, good luck anyways.
