Start here

After over 40 years of helping maritime workers, our firm has observed what it takes to get and keep an offshore job. If you are looking to tap into the oil and gas industry, then the following information may be helpful.

Securing offshore jobs is oftentimes difficult if you do not consider the reasons why you might not get hired. Once you identify your potential obstacles, you’ll be equipped to overcome these challenges and finally attain offshore work.

1. Too inexperienced: One major reason an offshore company may not hire you is your lack of offshore experience. Companies will be reluctant to hire someone

who has not seen the deep ocean. It presents too much of a risk for them. Many new hires (especially those with no experience in the industry) do not realize what offshore life entails until they are out on the ocean, at which point many abandon their jobs. Companies avoid this costly mistake by simply not hiring inexperienced applicants. Possible solution: Consider working at an onshore drilling site or oil related company. Even service companies (food catering, cleaning) are putting people on offshore platforms. Getting a job at one of these related companies may give you enough experience and knowledge of the offshore life to make you more appealing to offshore employers. By doing this, you’ll be more suitable for jobs offshore.
