Very , very frustrating
You feel you’re wasted. The situation is even worse when you hear oil companies have pause hiring faces low crude price.
Lots people face the same struggle. Is there any best way for recent environment to get into oil and gas industry?
Yeah: there is a way. And it comes down to this
Why the current situation of oil and gas jobs it’s terrible? It’s simple, the reason is cheap crude oil prices
Have you already hear about that? Right!
That means crude oil price below $ 50 per barrel. And for this reason, 2015 has been difficult year in the oil and gas industry
What oil and gas company have been doing since price falling in mid-2014? They just fire employees to cope with low oil prices

Still there open door for you
Although oil companies have been slow down in hiring, the future oil and gas jobs market are interesting. Employees retired, others are terminated. Guess what will happen? New talents would be in dire demand to fill vacant positions. And the door will be open for you especially when crude prices goes up.
Where are oil and gas are currently booming (best way to get into the industry)
Can you manage to wait until the oil price pick up? In the situation you want living, you want to pay the bill, you want to go the beach with your loved one? Yes, you can’t
What if I told you some place currently oil and gas jobs are booming?
If you focus on the upstream segment (exploration and production sector) of the industry to look for jobs,
Schlumberger would not listen to you, Halliburton would not listen to you, baker Hughes the same.
If oil and gas industries are your passion I recommend you to go in the downstream sector(refining sector) is where there are hope to find new jobs!
Downstream sector is currently booming benefit from access cheap oil.
Why is refining sector booming? It’s simple! Because that’s how works.
Downstream sector is dealing with selling of petroleum products like diesel, gasoline, lubricants etc. However, the current low crude prices do not hurt them as they generate windfall profit
Struggling to get the job into oil and gas industry?
Yes, You have no alternative but to go into refining sector. Because the sector has been booming and hope for a new position available.
