Although the oil and gas industries have long been considered a “man’s” line of work, Stag Energy Services reports that both men and women have equal opportunity to excel in the field. As such the energy industry service provider celebrates not only new job growth in oil and gas markets, but the number of recently-created jobs that have gone to female applicants. In fact, a recent article from CNN Money explains, “There are few fields that scream ‘burly man job’ more than oil and gas work. Yet in the first quarter of this year, nearly half (46 percent) of all new jobs in the oil industry went to women, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data compiled by the industry research and news service Rigzone.”
Although CNN Money notes that it is too soon to tell whether this shift in employment statistics is a trend or a one-off occurrence, Stag Energy Services believes that the results of the pattern will soon prove beneficial. In a recent press statement, the company explains, “We believe that every individual employee is an individual—whether male or female. However, it is critical to note how these individuals can contribute to the growth of the industry as a whole, as well as the development of new teams and practices that can lead to further success. As more women join this predominately male workforce, the energy industry can expect a series of new minds and ideas that can help oil and gas producers vastly improve.”
According to Stag Energy Services, the emerging data on employment within the oil and gas industry reveal another intriguing point—the diversity of career options that exist within this field. CNN Money reports, “While some women may actually be working on the most physical jobs on a rig—the roustabouts or roughnecks that muscle drill pipe into place and perform other manual tasks—Rigzone President Paul Caplan thinks nearly half the women in the oil industry are taking [on other jobs] like technicians, geologists or petroleum engineers.”
“Americans have become attracted to the oil and gas industries, simply because of the availability of jobs. However, those who are selective of their opportunities may now discover that there are industry careers that specialize in virtually every type of skills, from physical labor to scientific to creative,” Stag Energy Services explains in its press statement.
As job opportunities become more present in the energy sector, Stag Energy Services encourages Americans to consider a career in this ever-expanding, diverse field.
