About Offshore-Oil-Rig-Jobs. I have worked in the offshore oil industry for more than 25 years and I am going to try and hand over to you some no sugar coating and no BS advice on working in the oil industry. If you already work in the offshore oil industry or you are attempting to get yourself a fresh vacancy offshore this website will try and impart you some simple unadorned, practical and unbiased ideas.

You need to clearly realise that it is not as easy and unproblematic as some oil rig employment websites would have you accept as true. You simply can not walk onto an offshore installation into a new post without some basics in place.

Offshore installations are potentially dangerous places, and safety and safe working practices is what we all live and breathe. For many positions it most definitely is not a training ground for someone who doesn't have basic safety training or skills. Read the book on offshore safety.

In general individuals with a relevant trade in mechanical or electrical or electronics discipline have the best chance at getting a technical job start, however experienced hands is what most outfits chase, and that's utterly sensible. The offshore world isn't a charity industry, companies pay out immense dollars and if you want big riches you got to help the company make them.


It is up to you to demonstrate yourself in the most outstanding way possible to prospective employers and give companies a incentive to start you off. The oil field is not for sissies! You need to demonstrate people that you possess a confident and proactive can-do stance. If you are someone who likes everything on a plate and your rear end wiped for you, better stay house with your mom or the wife.

For those who are not in the offshore petroleum industry and are trying to get a commencement, do you actually know what an oil rig is? Most folks who transmit me emails clearly don't have a clue. If you hanker to work in the oil industry then it's appropriate to find out the rudiments to avoid sounding like a meathead. Here is some fundamental material on the various offshore oil installation types that come under the umbrella and generic designation of oil rigs.
