About Rig-Welders

About Rig-Welders.You should to clearly realise that it is not as effortless 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 career without some fundamentals 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 fundamental safety education or skills. Read the book on offshore safety.

About Rig-Welders

In general people with a important trade in mechanical or electrical or electronics discipline possess the best opportunity at acquiring a technical vacancy start, however experienced men is what most contractors chase, and that's perfectly sensible. The offshore universe isn't a charity industry, companies spend big dollars and if you want big money you got to help the company make them.

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

For individuals who are not in the offshore petroleum industry and are trying to get a start, do you really understand what an oil rig is? Most people who transmit me emails clearly don't have a clue. If you yearn for to work in the oil industry then it's best to understand the fundamentals to avoid looking like a fool. Here is some essential information on the different offshore oil installation types that come under the umbrella and generic expression of oil rigs.
