About Oil Rig Cooks

About Oil Rig Cooks. I have worked in the offshore oil industry for more than 25 years and I am going to attempt and give away to you a little no sugar coating advice on work in the oil industry. If you already work in the offshore oil industry or you are attempting to get yourself a new appointment offshore this site will try and give out you straight forward, practical and unbiased pointers.

You have to to distinctly realise that it is not as easy and uncomplicated as some oil rig employment websites would have you think. You simply can not walk onto an offshore installation into a new situation without some basics in place.

About Oil-Rig Cooks

Offshore installations are potentially dangerous places, and safety and safe working practices is what we all live and breathe. For many openings it most without doubt is not a training ground for somebody who doesn't have essential safety education or skills. Read the book on offshore safety.

In general personnel with a relevant trade in mechanical or electrical or electronics discipline possess the best chance at acquiring a technical job start, however experienced men is what most contractors chase, and that's perfectly sensible. The offshore universe isn't a charity industry, companies spend 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 best 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 assured and proactive can-do stance. If you are someone who likes everything on a plate and your rear end wiped for you, better stay home with your mom or the wife.

For those who are not in the offshore petroleum industry and are trying to get a get-go, do you in reality understand what an oil rig is? Most people who send me emails evidently don't have a clue. If you yearn for to work in the oil industry then it's appropriate to understand the basics to avoid looking like a meathead. Here is some essential facts on the numerous offshore oil installation types that come under the umbrella and generic designation of oil rigs. About Oil Rig Cooks
