Oil And Gas Jobs Interview Questions And Answers
Sample Question 1
Currently, people are looking for oilfield jobs for several reasons such as job challenge, high payment, etc. As you know, when you are interviewed, you will have 20 to 60 minutes to persuade the interviewer that you are the right person for the job. It is a fact that many people fail to impress the oilfield employers, so they do not get the dream job. I’ve seen so many highly skilled people from many different educational backgrounds getting the chance to be interviewed, but they still cannot get the jobs in the oilfield because they don’t know the trick to win over the interviewer...
Sample Question 2
Approach With an Positive Attitude
You must project an enthusiastic and optimistic outlook while being interviewed. If what you are facing is something that doesn’t sound good to you, try not to show your feelings with your actions. What you need to do is just keep a slight smile on your face and be calm until it is time for you to say something. Many oil companies like to test your attitude by asking you some bad things about yourself or looking you down, because they want to see your reaction. Many candidates fail this test and don’t have chance in this business.
Sample Question 3
There are a few extra tips which will be useful for an interviewee, as listed below:
1. Explore your expertise and correlate your experience with the desired job’s requirements. Think about your technical strong points, successes, etc.
2. Prior to the interview, collecting information about a company is the best way to know where you will fit with company.
3. Keep a folder, which contains a list of questions and extra resume, with the company name with you.
4. You must know the art of describing your weaknesses as strengths. Every company wants to know this about you. For example, my strength: I am workaholic and I want to get the job done. My weakness: I tend to work individually more than with a team...
Sample Question 4
Question: What do you know about our company?
You must do a lot of homework about the prospective company. The more you can tell about the company, the better for you. Additionally, you should know the core business of the company and how you can be a part of the organization.
