How to Get a $100k Oil and Gas Job and Why!

Share:

Do you want a career making $100k or more? Do you want a career where you are off every two weeks for two weeks? How about 28 days on and 28 days off? How about MAJOR tax advantages (when you work on rigs outside the USA).

What about demand? Are there a lot of jobs in available in gas and oil?

There is an oil and gas revolution happening quietly in the USA and it is spreading around the world. OPEC (the organization in the middle east which works to keep oil prices up) is scared because China has just discovered major shale oil reserves. Several States in the USA are producing huge amounts of shale oil now and thousands of new wells are being drilled everyday.

Just a few years ago there was a lot of talk about "peak oil," the point at which oil production would start to decline. Today, there is no doubt that there is plenty of oil and gas in the world for many, many decades to come.

What does that mean to you?

It means that if you are looking for an industry which will provide steady employment for you at above average earnings for the next 30 years, you cannot do better than the gas and oil industry. In fact, you could get rich in the oil and gas industry.

What can you do?

A. Take stock of your skills that may apply to oil and gas jobs.

Did you have a summer job operating a backhoe or forklift? Don't forget that on your resume. Many skills that you may have and which you don't give much value to may be desirable to the oil and gas industry.

B. Think about skills that you may be able to quickly master for oil and gas.

Here are a few examples:

A CDL is a commercial driver's license. You can get a CDL in about 3 weeks at a cost of about $2,500. A CDL will allow you to enter the gas and oil industry faster and for more money.

You can learn to operate a backhoe with about 40 hours of training at a cost of about $4,000.

You can learn basic structural welding in a private school in about 6 weeks for about $5,000. To become a pipe welder will take more time and about $15,000.

You can attend a 20 day rough neck school for about $5,000. A roughneck works on a drilling rig and is responsible for several tasks on the rig. Roughnecks ARE trained on the job. Attending roughneck school before applying for work will make it easier to get work.

C. Go to work with the skills you have.

Keep your resume to one page by not listing things that won't matter to the oil and gas industry - they don't care if you were first Tuba in college or high school.

They do care that you have never been arrested. It doesn't mean you won't get hired because you have a record, but not having a record is a sort of "skill," isn't it?

The GREAT news is that many oil and gas jobs can only be learned with on the job training. If you have basic accounting skills, tell them. You could easily be put on a path to becoming an oil and gas bookkeeper.

Were you a purchaser at any level for any kind of business? Imagine YOU eventually becoming a purchaser on an off shore rig. You go to work for 28 days straight. Next, you take an excellent vacation for 28 days. All the while, you are taking home $120,000 a year. Are you out on the deck with big pipes swinging around? No. you have a desk inside, with an ocean view, most of the time. Yes, part of the time you'll be putting new supplies on shelves, but you'll be keeping all your toes and fingers because purchasing and stocking is a relatively safe occupation.

Think hard and outside the box as you write your resume. The oil gas industry needs almost every occupation that society needs from dishwashers to dog catchers. The KEYs are:

1. Get going in the industry doing something - any job you can get.

2. Study the various careers in the industry from the inside.

3. Decide which one you want and work toward it while making at least $50,000!

How does that sound to you? Does it sound better than going to college and getting out with $85,000 in school debt? Ya think? Write that resume (and keep it to one page). Google "oil jobs." Apply everywhere fast. Go to work!

What should you do next? Get going and write that one page resume. Feel free to send it to me and I will reply with my opinion. There is no charge.

You may find my website interesting. I wrote a book / course which details how you can become a pipe welder by teaching yourself. I have about 60 unsolicited testimonials. Visit http://www.100kWelder.com - Thanks!
