I spend almost a decade at Shell, pre and post Dutch takeover and know many in Suncor including relatives. Now the PetroCan side of Suncor could be a county club, but Suncor never was and is as aggressive as ever come to staffing.

Splitting from mothership will reduce red tape and cost. Having a partner to join you is icing on the cake.

Been there. It's a tough market. Make sure to expand your search outside of O&G. Network, lean on connections, make sure your LinkedIn is on point. Hit up recruiters, build some relationships, buy some coffees. Make sure they think of you first when a client is looking for someone.

Both of these things.

I was only out of work for a few weeks, but credit to finding a job is in no small part due to the network I built over previous years. It was from someone who reached out to me unsolicited, and I wasn't even sure if I should contact him or not - just get in touch with everyone you know, no matter how small you think the chances are that it will work.
