If you happen indeed to be the best in your field, you could get a job offshore alright. In sincere fact, it really does not matter much whatever field it is that you specialize in. Just about anybody has something to offer on the oil rig, in case you were not aware of it. If your line is engineering related in any way, they could even take you out to the rig offshore. That’s cool, isn’t it?
Only truly determined people get to get offshore oil drilling jobs. The challenges on the way to getting them are quite enormous and they could cause lesser people to quit long before they get picked. So ask yourself: ‘are you made of tough stuff?’ And then answer the question.
I have got a friend who works an offshore job. Now this isn’t the proverbial friend who actually happens to be me; I mean I actually do have a friend who works the oil rig and hasn’t been home to his pregnant wife for five months. I am not even sure he is going to be around to see her deliver when the time comes. I don’t know if the job is always like that, but I have second thoughts now about taking such a demanding job. You?
When some folks hear about jobs offshore, such as oil drilling jobs all they can think about is petroleum engineering. However the field is rather vast, with room enough to accommodate loads of other disciplines. Even with your accounting degree, you could try applying too. After all, such companies offshore also need people that have other qualifications, don’t they? Of course! So, you can always fit in.
You know, even you could clinch one of the many entry level positions on an offshore drilling rig. They put the vacancies out in the dailies from time to time – about annually or something. You could begin now to read about what the qualifications are and seeing if you have them. It indeed could be the beginning of the end to your financial problems. With what they pay!
