Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 09, 2006
OilJobFinder is a new website tailored for people seeking jobs in the worldwide oil and gas industry. Job seekers are equipped with tools for promoting themselves to hiring managers, a listing of current job openings, and detailed information about how the petroleum industry operates and the types of jobs available. The service is the latest offering from parent company, M&L Research, a leading provider of industry-specific job search and hiring solutions.
"We developed OilJobFinder because the oil industry is in a quandary. Not enough young people simply are pursuing petroleum related degrees to make up for the wave of retirements in the industry. Natural gas exploration and production is booming in the U.S. because of higher prices, but employers can't find enough workers to fill production jobs," says Kevin Lutgarten, Vice President of OilJobFinder.
"Fortunately, those who become aware of and pursue oil and gas jobs are reaping the rewards of high wages. OilJobFinder is an invaluable resource whether you already have experience in the industry or are trying to get a foot in the door."
Although the core of OilJobFinder is its Job Center, the website also features 200 pages of oil and gas industry information covering a broad range of topics: exploration and production careers, onshore and offshore rig jobs, petroleum refining, Canadian oil sands jobs, and pipeline jobs. There's also a section dedicated the proposed Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline, which would be on the largest construction projects ever undertaken and would be a boon for job seekers.
Petroleum industry employers are given free access to a set of professional hiring tools. Their account includes unlimited job postings, unlimited use of the Job Seeker Resume Database, and a detailed company profile.
"Our mission with OilJobFinder is two fold. First, leverage our 20 years of industry-specific employment research to build awareness of job opportunities and assist job seekers by providing them with time saving tools. Second, we connect employers and job seekers via a streamlined, web-based interface -- which is free," says Lutgarten. Petroleum industry employers and recruiters pay no fees to post jobs; therefore the value proposition is tremendous.
OilJobFinder is a private company based in Seattle, Washington, and is a subsidiary of M&L Research, which has provided industry-specific employment research and staffing tools since 1986.
