these facts the hard way:
You could very well be the
most qualified person for the job, with the best work record,
highest education, the most talent and the sharpest problem
solving skills. No doubt you are determined in your resolve
to earn your pay and do a good job. To get an offshore oil
rig job, you have to do one thing;
convince a recruiter
to call you in above all others.
What is your
game plan to make this happen?
- Your years of experience?
- Your education?
- Your charm and personality?
- Your loyalty? Dedication?
- The worst resumés
we've seen came from people with years of education.
- People with tons of
valuable work experience get bogged down in the technical
aspects of their jobs. They tend to ramble on and never
answer the 2 questions all employers want to know from
the start: "What can you do for this company and
why should I hire you?"
- Some of you will not
even get your foot in the door because you come across
as being timid, shy and not having confidence in yourself
you present yourself as the complete opposite - a know
than likely you are qualified, experienced, highly
competent, intelligent, quite capable and enthusiastic
about getting the most demanding of jobs done. All you
need is the right direction to go in and a chance to
prove your self...
a cold hard fact I've discovered
over my many years of reading thousands of offshore oil
rig job resumés, written
by all types of people, from all walks of life, with all
types of experience, qualifications and varying degrees
MOST PEOPLE WORK BETTER THAN THEY
than not this includes you. Regardless of your education,
experience, personal background, dedication, how organized
you are, how hard you work or what a great person you are,
the odds are stacked against you when it comes to
using the written word and the internet.
There are two tasks which
much be successfully accomplished here. Slack in either
will shut you down.
- What you write
- How you send it
We have already discussed
the fact that most people do not possess good writing skills.
That's only one part of
the problem. The other is delivery.
How do you know what you
send out is even being opened? How much of a shocker would
it be for you to discover the dozens or even hundreds of
resumés or CV's you spent numerous hours and $$ to
send out never got opened?
Once you are sure your resumé
is a winner in the written part the next hurdle you
will face is how you send it out. The online electronic
delivery process can cause a great deal of grief to the
unwary job seeker.
The spam / virus threat is
a real and present danger to any business using the internet.
Because of this, many companies have standing policies not
to open attachments (which is what most job seekers use)
under any conditions.
It very well could be the
resumé or CV you have faithfully been sending out
might not be getting the exposure you think it is getting.
Not all computers are the same and not all software works
Two major concerns
which could prevent your resumé from being read are
the attachment filters and opening problems.
Here are letters from surprised
offshore / maritime job seekers who found out the hard way
why they were not getting any job offers:
I sincerely appreciate
you reviewing my resumé and letting me
know about the
it. That would explain why
I have not had any contact with any offshore
oil rig job recruiters in the last two months.
My husband has
been looking for offshore employment for the
past 10 months. At every chance we got
we sent out applications with the resumé
as a word doc attachment. We very rarely
got a reply. You can imagine our amazement when
you told us the attachment did not open
correctly! Most of the resumés we sent
out, 100 plus of them, were sent to the recycle
bin and we did not even know it!
We now use your
and yes we have had replies, not robot mail,
but actual job offers! Thank you Ron for
all of your help. Your online resumé
really works, and it is nice to know they open
every time all the time and don't end up
in the trash.
Well it has finally
happened. Paul got a job as a Driller in Oman
with Nabors. Yes we sent them your web resumé
a few months ago. They rang in January and offered
him a driller's position and he flew out there
let this happen to you!
These days it
is tougher than ever to get an offshore oil rig job, which
is exactly why this is so important:
If you have
prior offshore or maritime experience, there is no reason
for you not to be working at the job of your choice
and in the salary range you want.
new starts with no previous experience - the jobs are
out there. If you are not working it is not due to a
lack of jobs.
I do hope I
have opened your eyes as to the
tremendous advantage that
using a professionally written web resumé provides.
If you are not happy with the number of job offers you are
getting from your job search, STOP what you are doing
have a look
at your resumé before any more damage is done. It
does no good to kick a dead horse.
Creating a winning resumé
involves more than going to Office Depot, Office Max, etc.,
or some online website and buying resumé
building software. Good, effective resumés
are not built, they are created. For best results they need
to be written by a person. Nothing will out perform a professionally
resumé written specifically for you by a real human
