We are in the process of building up a business directory on the site. If you own an oil and gas company or recruitment company, you can have a free listing in the directory by linking to www.oilandgaspeople.com from your website or blog. If this is of interest to you drop us a an email to email@example.com
As the community site develops we intend to add lots of information pages for new starts and graduates to the industry. Soon we hope to introduce a document library where members can upload and download documents such as safety alerts, lessons learned, procedures, presentations etc. We hope this will become a really useful resource and enable the free sharing of information across the industry.
Finally and this is our most exciting announcement. From Monday this week, all candidates registered on www.oilandgaspeople.com our jobs site, will be able to use their profile on the site as a free online CV. You will be able to link to your edited profile from social networking sites, blogs, email signatures etc. Your edited profile contains no contact details or personal information. It will be fully optimised to appear in search engine results and it will maximise your exposure on the web.
A special link will be available that you can use when applying for jobs on other sites that will give recruiters free access to your full profile including contact details and documents. This is a first for any Jobs site and we expect it to be a very popular feature. The feature will be available to all candidates on www.oilandgaspeople.com whose profile is more than 60% complete.
Now is a good time to log in and complete your profile on the site. Remember recruiters don’t see your CV until the final stages. The more information in your profile, the more chance we will have of accurately matching jobs to you and the more information, the more keywords you will be found for in search engine results.
We hope you enjoy our new features. We thank you for being an early adopter of our sites and we look forward to matching jobs and networking with you in 2010.
Best Wishes for the New Year
Oil and Gas People is different from other oil and gas recruitment sites. We follow a totally new model that has been designed from the offset to offer a better solution to candidates and recruiters. The site has been developed by people who work in the industry and have a real understanding of the frustration often felt by job seekers and recruiters, when using existing recruitment sites.
Traditional oil recruitment sites charge recruiters an arm and a leg, for access to their candidate databases and for job postings. They are inefficient and out dated, often creating lots of extra work for recruiters as they have to manually sort through hundreds of CV’s many of which wont even meet the basic requirements for the advertised position. When searching candidates it’s impossible to know which are available and which are not. Many hours are spent cold calling candidates and screening people by email and phone. It’s a process which is expensive, frustrating, time consuming and thanks to www.oilandgaspeople.com, now outdated!
From a candidate point of view, just how frustrating is it? having to search through job sites every day, looking for the latest positions, filling out cover letters and applying for jobs. Often you won’t even receive a response or acknowledgment. How about all the irrelevant job alerts that fill your inbox and cold calls you receive about positions that are of no interest to you.
Oil and Gas People solves all of these problems and more! With our site, recruiters post positions for free and are then automatically matched to suitable candidates who meet their exact requirements. Candidates build detailed profiles on the site that offer a complete insight into their requirements, training, qualifications, availability and work history. A sample candidate profile can be viewed here
These profiles are visible to recruiters minus a candidates contact details, totally free of charge. After posting a position on the site, recruiters can instantly view all the candidates profiles who most closely meet their requirements. They then click just one button to send there job description to their chosen candidates. Candidates contact details are safe until they view the position and decide to be put forward. After accepting a position all candidates contact details and certificates will be available to the recruiter. They even receive an edited CV which they can forward to the end client totally free of charge!!
Recruiters will only ever pay a fee when a candidate is matched to a position and accepted into the role or for an interview. We give recruiters the best possible chance of a return for their money before charging them. By the time they need to pay a fee they will have confirmed their interest in the candidate, the candidates will have confirmed their interest in the role and the job will have confirmed their interest in the candidate. It’s a unique three match process that is instant and totally free to every recruiter and candidate.
Other sites constantly publish figures about how many candidates they have in their database. What use is hundreds of thousands of registered users, if only ten percent of them are actually available at any given time? Why should it be up to the paying customer to work through the database and find out who is available?
candidates will be required to
log in and update their profile and availability at least every 2
months or they won’t automatically appear in search results. We
will never boast about how many outdated CV’s we have. Just how
many high quality candidates profiles we have, who are actually
available for work and actively
Candidates can also benefit from our social networking site http://www/oilandgascommunity.com which allows members to exchange information and network with oil and gas people around the world
There are many more reasons why we are better for recruiters and candidates. Don’t just take our word for it though. Sign up today and see for yourself!! www.oilandgaspeople.com
