The industry is pushing forward full force and Eagle Ford jobs are coming with them. Job News hosted the largest career fair in the company’s history yesterday in Robstown, TX (near Corpus Christi). As many as 3,000 attendees made the trek to apply for the more than 2,000 jobs that were on display from 29 companies. For those that count, the population of Robstown is only a little over 12,000. The population grew by 25% for the day! Wow!
More than 10,000 direct Eagle Ford jobs have been created in past two years and most expect that number will more than double over the next two. The play is entering a producing phase where more operations and maintenance personnel will be needed. That’s in addition to the office managers and oilfield workers who are making sure wells are being drilled on schedule. With the influx of workers, we also have more resources at our disposal. There have been Eagle Ford related job fairs almost every week over the past couple of months.
If you want to stay up to date, be sure to visit our new Eagle Ford Job Fairs page, where we’ll be tracking all job fairs. Over the coming month, there’s a job fair in Robstown on December 7, 2011, and another in Laredo on January 13, 2012. In addition, you can always search for jobs right now at our Eagle Ford Jobs page.
