On the rig floor, you learn the job by doing the job. But the rig floor isn’t the only place where you’ll be valued for this hands-on knowledge.

Several oil and gas career paths value the qualities in drilling rig employees.

As part of a rig crew, you prove you understand what it takes to be part of a team. You develop leadership qualities. And you increase your technical understanding of drilling operations and mechanics.

This combination will set you apart when you focus on moving into management positions.
