It is estimated that the United States will be the world's top producer of petroleum and natural gas hydrocarbons in 2013, surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Thus, increasing the nation's energy workforce, which has witnessed a 41 percent increase since the end of the recession through July 2013, reported the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Increased energy demand means increased manpower. For this year and next, there are four recruiting trends that will continue to plague the industry, and these trends might affect corporation bottom lines and the energy market.
Employers face a challenging market in which costs are rising and new resources are emerging.
"These four trends are global with talent being shifted throughout the world to fulfill the demand and support of these operations," remarked Adam Berk, Principal, Human Capital, Performance & Reward at Ernst &Young to Rigzone.
