Looking for oilfield work? Let’s RigUp.
Here’s our tips for how to maximize your profile’s potential to really increase your chances of landing your next oilfield gig.
Prep your profile. Starting with a bio, talk yourself up. In a few sentences, describe why you’re the best candidate for the job. Don’t just list your years of experience – go bigger. If you had 30 seconds to convince someone to hire you, what would you say? Make your name the one worth remembering. You’ll also provide more insight into your work history – past experience, work locations, project details, direct reports, skills, promotions, and more.
With the current state of the industry, where thousands of people are looking to get back into the oilfield, would you rather depend on someone else to push your resume or have the power yourself to ensure that your resume is at the very top of the stack?
Utilizing robust profile data to match qualified contractors for clients is what the platform does so well, but we can’t do it without you. Don’t skimp on the details – the more you provide, the easier it will be for employers to get a better picture of your skillset, career interests, and basin availability. The more we know, the easier it is for RigUp to find qualified candidates when sourcing for clients. It’s a win-win.
Step two –
Be specific. When making your selections as far as career interests, be sure to be thorough. If you express interest in work as a drilling consultant, you will receive real time emails every time a new drilling consulting job has been posted on RigUp. If you do not indicate what you are looking for, you will not receive any emails about new jobs.
Step three –
Upload, upload, upload. Make sure you strengthen your profile by attaching your latest resume, any certifications and/or awards, any memberships you hold, and your complete contact information. Keep in mind that hiring managers can filter for individuals by certifications, role, desired basins, industry experience, role experience and location – so be sure not to sell yourself short when listing your accomplishments. The more specific you are, the likelier you’ll appear in an employer’s search.
Step four –
Request recommendations. With employer reviews, your profile gets extra staying power in the algorithm. The more kudos you receive from your supervisors, the higher your profile will rank in the search results. It’s as simple as that.
With a little effort and some fine-tuning of your professional potential, you can stand out to employers and get more oilfield work. With RigUp, you have the ability to truly set yourself apart, thanks to the easiest way to work in oil and gas.
