Posted October 27, 2015 at 6:13am

Rigzone reports that “despite the 
thousands of layoffs that have affected oil and gas workers
 across the globe this year, the industry still has a need for workers with specialty skills and for specific positions.”  

“Rigzone’s recent 3Q global hiring survey of almost 300 employers and recruiters revealed that though 
hiring is down
, positions in engineering and science, management/support and maintenance and inspection are the most plentiful, respectively.”  

“While oil and gas professionals who want to remain in the industry are anxiously awaiting on market conditions to improve and hiring to pick back up, aspiring industry newcomers are looking for their opportunity to jumpstart a career in oil and gas. Rigzone spoke with industry recruiters to see where the job opportunities lie and what skills are in high demand in the industry.”
