Oil and gas online job fair set
Upstream energy companies have a high-tech option in their quest for workers.
The Petroleum Human Resources Council of Canada will conduct an Oil and Gas Services Online Career Fair next Tuesday and Wednesday, with job-seekers able to obtain career information and leads via the Internet.
They’ll be able to watch company presentations and videos, speak directly with employers and other job seekers, download company brochures, upload their resumés, visit an online job board and apply for positions.
“For employers, the fair is a cost-effective and innovative way to find the skilled labour they need and might not have been able to access before, like workers on EI or the underemployed,” said Cheryl Knight, CEO and executive director of the Petroleum Human Resources Council of Canada.
“Meanwhile, job-seekers will be able to target their efforts and connect directly with employers who are looking for workers.”
The fair will focus on the oil and gas services sector, which includes seismic, petroleum services and drilling and completions services. That sector alone will need at least 5,500 new workers by 2015.
