Offshore Jobs With No Experience Needed

Post image for Offshore Jobs With No Experience Needed

Ready for offshore jobs, but have no experience? If you have the right attitude and are willing to work hard to prove yourself out of the gate to it’s very possible for you to get started in this exciting industry.

To be honest you’re going to have to work twice as hard in your job hunt when you’re just starting out if you’ve never worked offshore before. Even if you’re the most reliable and dependable person out there, drilling companies are not going to know if you’ll be able to handle being offshore for weeks at a time.

That’s why when you find an available entry level position, you take it.

The best advice for starting out

The best advice we can give you when you’re just starting out is to take absolutely any job that falls in your lap.

I don’t care if it’s working on the most decrepit oil platform out there – just do your tours, don’t complain, and viola: you now have offshore work experience.

For people looking for offshore jobs, no experience in the industry makes the job hunt harder. So of course you’re not going to get hired for your dream job you first go around. That simply doesn’t happen.

Take any advantage the world throws at you. Even if it is working onshore with a company who can promote you offshore, that can be a good foot in the door for you.

Depending on how hungry your for your first job, one option (if you live in the area) is to show up looking for entry level work in southern Louisiana in person. Of course, not everyone can do this, but if you do it will make things easier.

Where to look

Instead of applying directly at a company like Exxon, for your first time out you’re going to need to be more focused. What a lot of people don’t know about this industry is that the actual offshore drilling is done by third party companies.

These drilling companies are the places you need to go to look for your first offshore jobs. No experience on previous offshore rigs is much more common to these companies. They are your best bet to find entry-level offshore jobs.
