Summing Up

The key to a lucrative career in this industry is learning. As long as your learning curve continues to be a sharp upward slope, you will grow in your role. All the companies described in this chapter provide excellent career development opportunities. So write your CV well and ensure you clinch the job. However while following up on prospective offers, beware that a number of recruitment related scams have emerged in which unsolicited offers of employment were made to individuals with forged documents. Typically following such offers, the candidates were asked to pay a sum of money towards visas, processing fees and other charges. None of these drilling companies make unsolicited offers, nor will they expect any payment from employees before or during employment.
