Hello Oilpros! Your community continues to grow by leaps and bounds. You have truly made Oilpro, "The Oil and Gas Professional Network". We are zealously working to bring you new features and tools to make Oilpro an even more important tool in your kit. Today, I would like to share an exciting feature coming soon to Oilpro.
The primary mission of Oilpro is to be the oil and gas industry's platform to read, learn, and share experiences and expertise. As the Oilpro community has grown, we have recognized a secondary need to assist those looking for employment or new contract gigs. To that end, we will be releasing a Careers section of Oilpro in the coming weeks.
We realize many people are interested in new job opportunities but some are not. Therefore we have given every member of Oilpro the ability to control their communication preferences. If you go to the My Settings area of Oilpro and click "Privacy & Jobs", you can select your temperament. Here are your options:
Importantly, this information will never be displayed on your public profile. Only qualified and fully vetted recruiters not working at your current place of employment will be able to view this information (privacy is a big deal to us).
Our crack team of developers are bringing you innovative new features that have never before been seen in the oilfield. The first of these tools is the Oilpro Recruiter Directory. We recognize that many people would rather talk to a reputable oilfield recruiter than apply to a job, blindly. To that end, we have developed a directory of recruiters that can be searched and sorted by recruiting area of expertise and regional focus. Only well connected recruiters (200+ connections) will be available in the directory to help ensure you are dealing with the best of the best.
Here is a sneak peak showing how the Oilpro Recruiter Directory will look. Thanks to the cast of Breaking Bad for their help...
If you are a recruiter looking to take advantage of Oilpro, we have two suggestions:
- Recruiter Directory (free) - Build your connection count to 200+ to get listed in the Recruiter Directory. As a few agencies have discovered, the fastest way to break through 200 connections is to invite your LinkedIn network to join you on Oilpro. Click here for instructions.
- Post Jobs (free) - In a few weeks, the Oilpro Careers section will be launched and recruiters will be able to post jobs for free to their network. Oilpro members in your network with matching skills, will be shown your job opening.
This is also a perfect time to introduce Oilpro's newest team member, Laura Bumby. Laura is running Oilpro's newly formed recruitment services division. Laura comes to us from Spencer Ogden and brings a wealth of recruiting knowledge and expertise. Welcome Laura!
