Captain Ron,

Thank you very much for getting back to me again. Your response is a lot faster than I'd expected and I truly appreciate this. Thanks also for the companies that you've sent me and I will try my best and keep you informed of any progress that I make.

I love to travel and experience different ways of life and off-shore work sounds like something I will find interesting Again, thank you for your time and attention.

Hi Capt Ron

Thanks for the link - I'll send off my CV to as many of those as I am able to. I would very much like to secure a position in the catering industry if possible. This is the first link I have been given that provides such concise information. many, many thanks.

Thank you for your most kind concern vis-a-vis my overseas job search in the camp management field. I have had some positive response from DynCorp Technical Services. They had me tagged for an Afghanistan site manager slot if the DOD signed the contract.

They didn't sign...the Army took the job over. They also have me on a "Letter of Commitment" for a government project they are bidding on in Latin America IF they are the winning bidder on the project. If, If and If.

Other than that and the fact I am not yet working overseas, the job search is slow.

Any suggestions. You mentioned in your last email letter to me that with my background, however dated, there should be job offers. Anything you can recommend I will be happy to listen to and seriously consider.

Thankfully yours,

Thanks for asking about the "latest".

My best lead has been with Pride International for work overseas. I would much prefer work overseas due to the fact I don't live close to the GOM and companies aren't willing to pay airfare. Pride actually contacted me by phone after I had sent my resume to them so at least they seemed interested.

I then sent an Addendum to my resume which shows cranes, max. tonnage, winches, tuggers, equipment, companies and contacts, etc. It's 5 pages but many companies seem to want full info right up front. This really seemed to help get me further notice. 

They have 2 new semisubs being finished up in Portland, Maine and eventually will be working offshore Brazil. I actually got a tour of them last weekend with a group of Naval Engineers. That was great and I let my contact at Pride know that I took advantage of this.

The first rig won't be on sea trials till Fall. Again, this seems most promising at this point but I have no real commitment yet and it's a waiting game. I have sent my cover letter, resume, addendum to resume, and copies of certificates to what seems like countless companies with no response except from Pride International and Atwood Oceanics.

Again, I know that I may be limited since I may not be able to take a job in the Gulf of Mexico but I don't say that in my cover letter. It's very frustrating that very few of the recruiters or human resource people at these companies seem to answer their phone. I begin to think I sound like a broken record! I do know that you  and others have said it's very competitive. 

I also have my resume on I will tell you that I did get a response from Oceaneering to work on a salvage ship for them as an AB. I thought hard about it but declined because I worked as an AB for many, many years and felt like it would be a step in the wrong direction for me professionally. (Beginning to wonder if  I made a mistake!)

A guy from England contacted me last week and he had found my resume from your site His name is Alister McCuaig. He was looking for a Crane Operator for a barge in the United Arab Emirates - 90 days on 30 off. He needed someone who has done heavy lift (400 ton) off barges. They are lifting and placing modules into place. Needless to say he weeded me out but it was good to speak with him.

I made several contacts and am trying to coordinate a couple interviews. The list helped.

Well thank you for the list. No job so far . But Im still trying. I did get a information packet from Tidewater Marine. It included a application. I got it filled out and sent back the next day.

Ron, the contact list you sent is terrific. After 20+ hours searching the internet, I was ready to go nuts. I was finding stuff on the oil industry, but not actual contact information. Your list fixed all of that instantly. I am finishing up some things for my current employer, which may take up to 2 weeks at which time I will aggressively pursue employment offshore as that has become my dream.

I have sent out some feelers to the special services as well as the catering companies. I will get back to you asap about my luck. I want it bad, so as soon as I finish this website for my boss, (2 weeks) I will be in overdrive pursuing a rig (0ffshore) job. Thanks for all your help

Good morning,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving me the web-site to your "links". They were very helpful and I found a lot of information. I will contact all of the companies and I hope I get some positive responses. I will keep you updated on what is happening. I really appreciate what you are doing for me.

Have a great day,

Just a line to thank you for the link you sent. It was very helpful material, and I hope it will prove invaluable in helping me to land a job. It is refreshing to see someone cares enough about joe blow to actually read and reply to such a request. If there is anything I can do for you at all, just let me know, I'm your man.

How's it going Capt. Ron?

I was interviewed by Woodside Energy for an Offshore Operator position a few months ago but missed out, although the number of applicants was very high. I am now working for Magellan Petroleum at an onshore gas field in Palm Valley in central Australia as an operator, which should assist with my pursuit of working offshore.

I would still like to stay registered with your website to check the job postings and receive your informative newsletters.

Dear Captain Ron,

Many thanks for your kind thought of me. As per your advise, I tried to contact and send my resume according to the available e mail addresses which are available in contractor drilling lists.

In this approach, I have recieved one positive reply which mentioned that my case will consider when opportunity arises. But others four replied negative. I'm still hoping to get reply in due course. I believe that during this month all are busy and planning with X'mas and New Year Hoildays.

Best regards,

Capt Ron:

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I have persisted and have been fortunate to land a very good job. All contacts came as a result of links through your site.

The position I took is with MPH International out of Dubai. It is as director of training with TotalFinaElf in Iran. The job is probably good for 2 years with potential extensions as further levels of the project are approved. Thanks again for a no BS website and some really good links!

Capt. Ron,

First of all I would like to thank you for sending the information on the offshore projects in view of securing a job for self, compatible to my qualification and experience.

I was able to secure a job working in Kuwait (Middle East) for an MNC Engineering Contractor (Petrofac International Ltd.) with a project covering a major oil company.

However, I keep my option open, based on situation and job offer demand. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanx a lot Ron,

What's up Ron? Your list did help me locate a position off shore. It was hard getting Houston to respond to my calls but I found out what I needed to do. I need to obtain a Z-card and I guess I have to do it on my own. Any suggestion will be appreciated. I need to go to work like YESTERDAY!


 Hello Captain Ron!

After reading your website and obtaining the knowledge to go out and get a job in the offshore / oilfield / maritime job industry (with the help of your list)....

within 5 short days I am going to work for my first offshore company! thank you Captain Ron and your website.

Jason O

Greetings Captain Ron!!!

Mr Edwards:

I have been offered a position to train roughneck's but would much rather get on the offshore in Nova Scotia or Newfoundland. I thank you for your respond and look forward to hearing from you again. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me again.

Tony C


thanks for the contacts. In reply to your question. I am presently working in the Gulf for Brown & Root in the capacity of Lead Process Start Up Engineer on the Canterell EPC 1 project offshore Mexico.

Thanks for the follow up message. I did order the directory and am looking forward to its arrival. I think your website is terrific! Information on the offshore / oilfield / maritime jobs  is hard to come by up here in the landlocked mid west.

As I begin my job search I am sure that questions will arise. I will take you up on your offer of assistance at that time.

Thanks again,

Dear Ron Edwards,

This is Bradley Mobley. I appreciate your sending of the job information. I am pleased to tell you that I have a physical and an  interview 9-19 with Pride Offshore.

More than likely, I am going to be employed with this company. If things do not work out like I have planned, I will certainly give you a call. I really liked the web page. Keep up the good work.

Bradley M
