Profile

Do I need to create a profile for the Rigzone Energy Network?

When you create a Career Summary and/or upload a CV/Resume on Rigzone, we will use some of this information for your Rigzone Energy Network profile. This information - which includes your full name, your job title, your current company, your location, and your career description – will be visible to other Rigzone Energy Network users when they view your profile. Any time you make an update to your Career Summary, this will automatically update on your Rigzone Energy Network profile.

Your contact details, full Career Summary and CV/Resume will only be accessible to verified employers/recruiters with an active database subscription.

Can I still access the Rigzone Energy Network if my Career Summary and CV/Resume is set to private?

If you opt-in to the Rigzone Energy Network, your Career Summary and CV/Resume will no longer be marked as private, and you will be unable to revert to this option. This is because your name, job title, company, location, and career description will be used to create your Rigzone Energy Network profile.

Please note only verified employers/recruiters, who have an active subscription to Rigzone’s Career portal, will be able to access your full Career Summary, CV/Resume, and contact details.
