Site Updates | Recruitment | Oil and Gas Jobs
Finally, the inaugural One Oil Job Search (OOJS) blog post! Only 6 months after launching.Last week the main features of the job board (job crawler + resumes + free job posts) were completed, so today I set aside the time for the updates page.
The second hottest thing on the internet after cryptocurrencyOne simple goal - put all oil jobs on one site. Right now there are 45,800 oil jobs on the site, so we are getting there. One Oil Job Search crawls the main oil job boards, a few oil company job boards, all indeed sites and a Norwegian job site 'Finn' to try and get ALL the oil jobs on one site. Because not all jobs get posted to the sites OOJS crawls, recruiters can post their jobs for free so we can achieve the goal of all oil jobs on one site. Recruiters like resumes so there's also a resume app for job seekers.
Because the world definitely needs more job sites…One reason is I wanted to learn to code and it always helps having a goal. A much better reason is most oil jobs aren't available through the dedicated oil job boards... Through my own job searches, I realised this a while ago. So I made ReservoirEngineerJobs.com 3 years ago and manually (!yuck) added all the jobs from Google, Rigzone, Indeed, LinkedIn, Oilandgasjobsearch & Twitter. ReservoirEngineerJobs.com became popular with reservoir engineers so I expanded to OneSubsurface.com and posted all geoscience & petroleum engineering jobs on one site. Even got a mention on reddit which is worth a million internet points. (14 people). Thanksfully those 14 people shared it with a few more and now it's just over 6000 weekly visitors and growing.
