    Default Check Out Colt Engineering!

    They are always hiring so I am sure they could benefit from receiving your resume. Seems like a good company to work for and they are one of my clients. If you forward me your resume, I can forward it to a recruiter there that I know.

    I think he'd be better off at a shell/encana/talisman

    actually, those are the 3 i'd try first

    like I said, I saw a ton of enginnering ads today, and lots recently too.




    Unfortunately I am not an enginner.

    Nothing wrong with working at Shell, Encana or Talisman either. I wouldn't narrow my choices down. I would explore all options and offers and pick the best one you receive obviously. Good luck man!

    There will be another Career Fair for Oil and Gas and Engineering down at the Telus Convention Centre again. It is tentatively booked for October 2nd. Mac Hall A, B, C & D. Brought to you by the Calgary Herald. I will post more info later.

    P.S - Go Flames Go!

    Default Thank you all

    Thank you people for your favors I do appreciate and admire you all
    For your information:
    Up to now I've sent my resume to about 50 companies in Alberta.

    I've got 4 opportunities for interview.
    Their excuse:
    1- you are overqualified for engineering entry or mid-level
    2- you don't have any Canadian Work Experience.

    I did try for 4 companies in the States...I got 4 panel interviews.

    Result:
    All interviews they did accept me but,
    They refused my case cz of Security regulations (not holding a Canadian Passport)

    This is the world we are living in.

    During my work lifetime I had; American, British, Australian, Russian and many different nationalities personnel under my hand...I used to ask them about their technical, personal and managerial qualifications not such excuses.

    this is the most common excuse given to immigrants despite their qualifications. Every member in my family had that excuse thrown to them despite their work experiance, qualification and documented education. When they did accept, i remember my dad being paid $8 an hour for an engineering position to support a family back in 1998... Now apparently we have a work force shortage?

    well perhaps it's just lack of knowledge in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin that they are talking about..

    I suspected that might be a problem

    I think generally, lack of canadian work experience is a political correct euphamism for "don't speak english too good".

    Default It's not true for me @ least

    This is not true for me @ least: “”don't speak english too good&quot””

    cz:
    1- I've studied in the only English Language University in my country which is 60 years old and is the sister university of MIT (Michigan Institute of Technology)
    2- This University is the only approved university by APEGGA among all Middle East universities
    3- Since I've been graduated and I did start working in English language work environment and all paper works in my work environment...they've been in English cz Drilling is an English language work environment anywhere in the world almost.
    What concept Canadian companies have...we all know better.... I do prefer not to mention.

    Here's a suggestion (just a suggestion):
    You need to tell them straight upfront (maybe even written in the objective on your resume), you are looking for mid-level position, and you are willing and able to work at mid-level positions (or even entry level).

    Because I think you need at least 1 yr of Canadian (climate, culture, etc.) engineering experience under supervision by a professional engineer for licensee with APEGGA.

    As you might already know
    Company likes: senior engineer that are license, with Canadian experience.
    Compnay dislikes: senior engineer that requires supervision.

    So for now don't be too picky, basically you just need someone to take you under their wings for a year or so. Then hopefully it's six-figure time after that (of course, the more Canadian experiences, the better).

    Good suggestion.... but, already I put this in my cover letter.
    During one interview they said: If even you ask to work for us in engineering entry level position...how we can place you to report to a senior engineer who is 10 years younger than you and he is holding only 5 years of experience!!!

    Well the good thing is, you are getting interviews for every ten or so applications you send. During the interview is where you do your magic. Even if they don't bring the issue up, you ‘might’ want to sell yourself as someone that can excel working within all age groups [of course it’s easier said then done].

    So a possible reply might be (lots of possibilities, I am sure other beyonder can craft something better):
    I don't think that will be a problem at all. On many occasions, I worked side-by-side with younger and different experienced individuals. “insert a good example from your own past”. The younger age group really brings a different perspective that I truly appreciate. After every discussion, I am left with a better insight into the solution. I am certain reporting to a somewhat younger or different experienced manager, will be a non-issue. It can only be a win-win situation.

    (I am assuming you truly don't mind working mid/low-end for a year or so. Once you get that experience, the sky’s the limit) Good Luck.

    Schlumberger fired a shit load of engineers recently. Otherwise, with your background, I'm sure they'll hire you on.

    Avoid Shell. RDS just took over and reductions are on the way. You don't need the drama.

    Try some agencies. They may take a chunk off but may open more doors than going alone.

    Without Canadian experience it can be very true that you would be at a disadvantage:

    1) If you are not familiar with Canadian business practices (particularly with suppliers) you could easily end up wasting a lot of money (they WILL take advantage of you).

    2) A lot of wells are drilled successfully because the engineer has a very intimate knowledge of the drilling conditions in the area, not because they were given a good drilling plan. I find that most of the important information about drilling in a certain area is never passed on in reports, only through talking with other field engineers or first hand experience. Ex. I hit a gravel seam that nobody knew about; the engineer on the rig two sections away knew about the gravel and has known about it for years. This information could have saved me a couple of hundred thousand dollars because I could have planned the cementing before we hit the gravel and had everything ready to go and cemented and redrilled in a matter of five hours instead of two full shifts. The problem here is because of a lack of communication at the company, your performance will be judged against others who have all the information needed to do a very efficient job.

    The approach I would take would be to aim for Directional Drilling jobs (try Phoenix Tech. Services) or Mud Engineer jobs (try MiSwaco, they are always looking) just to get into the field and get some Canadian experience and then target engineering jobs seven or eight months into your "Canadian Experience".

    One more important item: most "Drilling Engineers" have no legal right to call themselves "engineers" so you are kind of playing against a stacked deck in that your qualifications don't give you an edge over a large portion of the competition but do hold you to certain legal requirements in terms of your work position until you are given professional status in Alberta, certain requirements that many companies may not want to be burdened with.

    Default The best I've ever heard in this forum

    Thanks a lot.
    The points you mentioned are the best and I'll keep in mind (mostly professional).
    I'm personally interested in directional rather than MI works cz directional works expose you to the knowledge that always is a must for a drilling engineer and among directional workers, Sperry and Baker come to me first.... but as I told you with these two I need some cold calls (contacts) it doesn't go trough their websites.
    Thanks again.

    P.S. About this" find that most of the important information about drilling in a certain area is never passed on in reports"
    This happens when the companies don't have 'Lesson Learned System' What I did establish in my previous company I used to work for.
    Besides I do remember this expression in drilling always" Every well is a new well with new information even in the same reservoir"
