Are you laid off and don't know where to turn? Do you keep getting turned down for jobs because you don't have any special training? Are you not the type of person to go to college but still want to make a good living? Oil rigs are hiring. In fact there are more oil rig jobs than there are applicants, if you know where to look.

Did you know that most of the big oil companies don't do the actual drilling for oil themselves? They hire private contractors like Haliburton to actually do the work. That's the mistake most people make when applying for oil rig jobs. They apply at the wrong companies. Big companies like Exxon may have online applications, but they rarely have entry level positions because those positions are employed by the contractors.

So how do you find the contractors who hire the oil rig workers? You can spend hours doing research on the Internet but still wont know if the companies you come up with are hiring. Then you'll have to contact them one-by-one to see if they have any job openings. Some people will actually call the companies but most will send an email and lie to themselves that they really have tried to find a job. Most of the companies you come up with probably won't have oil rig jobs for workers with no experience because you'll most likely be thinking of only the big companies. Remember, the actual work on the rig is done by contractors. If you can't find them, you'll be wasting your time. Probably the only thing you will accomplish is to become more frustrated than you already are.
