Plunging oil prices have hurt American companies in the short run, but increased U.S. production means that the country is on the path to become a global leader in oil production, the head of the U.S. oil and gas industry's top lobbying arm said. Falling oil prices have empowered the United States and weakened OPEC and Russia, said Jack Gerard, the CEO of the American Petroleum Institute. The result is that increased U.S. production in North Dakota and elsewhere has "fundamentally reordered the...
Oil and gas industry employers in the UK are facing significant skills shortages according to the Oil & Gas Global Salary Guide, and over 65 percent (68.1%) of employers plan to increase headcount in 2014, exacerbating the already skill-short market, adding pressure to increase salaries to attract candidates, which is based on data from 24,000 respondents. 83 percent of employers predict an upturn in salaries in the coming year as hiring managers vie for top talent, at the same time as...
Good oil and gas talent is in short supply. Combine the so-called “Big Shift Change” with the reduced number of students applying for and completing STEM courses in college, and there is a serious concern about where the next generation of industry talent will come from. As oil and gas companies bring in new talent to meet staffing demands, CEB research shows that five-in-six hiring managers believe their new graduate hires lack the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. But rather...

This program is one example of outreach by the energy industry to veterans of the military. Careers related to energy are among the best jobs for veterans.

A recent Hard Hat Hub study of construction and engineering professionals in the power (transmission and distribution) industry found that companies will ramp up hiring in 2014, but many are having trouble finding talent and filling open positions. Nearly 70% of the companies reported experiencing growth in the parts of their businesses that relate to the transmission and distribution of power. The remaining 30% said that their firms, while not hiring today, “may be” before year’s end. Ninety...
Finding a good-paying, stable job that won’t leave the country tops the priority list for many Americans in these difficult economic times. But for those just graduating from high school or college, it seems harder than ever. Yet high-paying jobs are available right here in New Mexico and across the United States. Careers in energy, including jobs as linemen, power plant operators and engineers, are often overlooked by today’s youths. Gov. Susana Martinez has therefore declared Oct. 14-20...
Growth in unconventional oil and natural gas activity is transforming America’s energy future and strengthening its overall economy in terms of jobs, government revenues, and gross domestic product, according to a recent report from IHS. The report, entitled “America’s New Energy Future: The Unconventional Oil & Gas Revolution & the US Economy, Vol. 3,” extends on the initial analysis to include the full value-chain associated with the unconventional revolution: from drilling and...
Companies operating in the Marcellus and Utica shales say it's been a challenge to fill openings in engineering, geology, environmental health and other professional fields. The Marcellus Shale Coalition, a gas drilling-industry trade group, released a workforce survey Wednesday of more than 100 of its members. The survey indicates that about half of the industry's new hires in 2012 were equipment operators or work in operations and maintenance. Companies say professional and management jobs...
Through the nation's economic peaks and valleys, one constant is our need for energy. And fulfilling that need is a booming business. “Everybody touches energy in some way in their life...even your grandmother: every time she puts gas in her car or turns on the lights,” says Clara Lippert Glenn, CEO of The Oxford Princeton Programme, an energy-oriented training program based in Plainsboro, N.J. Energy is “a universal commodity,” Lippert Glenn explains. As such, the energy industry is a...
By Brad Dunleavy In February 2013, I landed an entry-level floorhand position on an oil well service rig in Alberta, Canada. For months, I had searched job sites for entry-level positions, but the only job postings I ever came across were for senior positions or jobs that required a specialized education, such as engineer. I finally succeeded in landing my entry-level oil rig job after spending $3,000 on a course I found through Kijiji while searching for jobs. The course was described in such...
