Oil and gas still considered an attractive career field

28 September 2015

According to a recent industry-wide poll conducted by Rigzone, the majority of oil and gas professionals would still recommend a career in the oil and gas industry to the next generation, despite recent market challenges associated with low oil prices.

Almost 1,000 skilled professionals from across 74 countries participated in the survey. A total of 84% said they would recommend the oil and gas industry as a career choice to school pupils or students, with wide career prospects, a long-term future and competitive salaries among the reasons cited most often.

Asked to rank areas of investment in a downturn in order of priority, oil and gas industry professionals ranked health and safety first, followed by workforce development. Graduate/apprenticeship programmes also ranked as a high priority for professionals, despite over two-thirds of respondents not having participated in such a programme themselves.
