The oil and gas industry is beginning to ramp up its workforce, and these tips can save you from common interview mistakes when you score face-time with hiring managers.
After a long job drought in the oil and gas industry, companies – especially in oilfield services – are beginning to hire again. And folks all over the internet have various dos and don’ts for the crucial first interview.
We’ve perused several sites to offer you the best tips to save yourself that sinking feeling of realizing too late that you blew it.
Some points should be pretty obvious. Proper hygiene is crucial. Dress like a business professional. Be on time. Don’t bring your kid. But there are a few that warrant a friendly reminder. So here goes:

This is by no means a comprehensive list, and I’m by no means an expert interviewee. But I figure that by sharing with you the best strategies we find, perhaps your next job interview will be less daunting.
