Oil and Gas Industry Finding Talent with Military Veterans

Rigzone reports that “as many as 120,000 new oil and gas workers worldwide will be needed over the next decade as the industry’s senior-most workers head toward retirement, according to a Sept. 5, 2013 story in the Telegraph. For oil and gas companies faced with the daunting task of finding all the high-quality workers needed to fill the void created by those departing workers, turning to military veterans could be one of the best moves they can make, according to the team at Orion International, a major military veteran search firm that focuses on finding the best available talent for their clients.”

“There is certainly a large pool of talented workers with invaluable experience and diverse backgrounds available to work in the oil and gas industry, David Coe, Orion’s vice president of Strategic Programs, told Rigzone.”

“‘Each calendar year, about 180,000 to 200,000 people leave active military service in the United States and transition out into the civilian workforce,’ Coe said. ‘There is a real diversity of talent from the various branches of the Armed Forces to choose from.'”

    The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I really thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair if you werent too busy searching for attention.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “Whenever you have an efficient government you have a dictatorship.” by Harry S Truman.

    You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something that I feel I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very huge for me. I am having a look forward to your next submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
