How Others Have Faired Using This Site

 This testimonial page is a great way to get the inside scoop on how others are fairing in their search for offshore, oilfield, oil rig and maritime jobs. These letters were written by people from all over the world and will provide you with a realistic appraisal (along with some interesting results) on how to use the web site along with the power of the internet to find work in this industry.

Here is what a supply boat captain recently had to say about the Port Fourchon area:

Capt'n Ron,

Thank You for all your help. I am now working for Abdon Callais as a 3rd Captain! If anyone is looking for a job, the Port Fourchon, New Iberia, Lafayette  and Morgan City (all in Louisiana) areas are usually all guaranteed hits. For deckhands, there seemed to be a one week lag between applying and hiring. For Captains the jobs are immediate. I was on the boat within 24 hours of applying and I was hired at the first company I applied with.

Anyway, Thank you again and I'll keep in touch

George H
3rd Captain

About this Site

General / Unusual - General and unusual comments about this site, the industry and finding work offshore.

THE BOOK - "The Complete Offshore Employment Handbook" This book has been updated numerous times and contains the best and latest in helpful but hard to find information about how to get an offshore oil rig job. Many have described it as a light house in a storm. This one-of-a-kind publication will be provided to you as a FREE BONUS when you sign you become a member of this site.

Over the years, this site has grown quite a bit. More and more people began asking for specialized assistance in addition to our free services. From this reader feedback we were able to design, develop and test different ideas until we came up with the winning package we use today in the professional services part of the site.

Since you are using the internet to find work in this industry, here are 2 things you must have in order to be successful with your job search. 

  1. A reliable contact list of employers engaged in the business.

  2. A way to introduce yourself to prospective employers and get them to listen to the why and how you would be a good candidate (above all others) for hiring.

It does not matter if you are an 18 year old fresh out of high school looking for that first entry level position or you have 25 plus years working on all types of rigs all over the globe. If you are going to use the internet in your offshore job search, you need the above items.

This might seem elementary to some, but you would be surprised how many people try to do this job (the job of finding a job) without the necessary tools and then wonder why they get no response.

With that in mind, have a look at what people have to say about our professional services.

Professional Resumés: The other service we offer is that of writing a professional, effective resumé for those who realize how important it is to make that all important favorable first impression.

You need to treat every resumé you send out as having the potential to produce an interview for you. It is amazing how many people spend an untold number of hours sending out half assed resumés. Half assed resumés will get you half assed results at the very best. More than likely they will get no results at all.
