Petroleum and Chemical Engineers – In Demand Professions
The University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering is undergoing a major expansion due to receiving $158 million in grants. This injection of funds and resulting opportunities for research and engineering students is aimed at meeting the high demand for Professional Engineers in the Province of Alberta and across Canada. Summit Search Group is a Canada-wide Recruiting firm who works with Oil and Gas Companies across the country, assisting them in the search for top talent.
Canadian Recruitment Firms are under constant pressure to deliver exceptional results, especially in the high demand sector of Oil and Gas where the gap is already widening between qualified candidates and available positions. The current climate has led to higher salaries being paid for suitable professionals. The present boom in oil production – due to horizontal and multi-stage fracking systems being able to reach oil deposits that were once believed out-of-reach – has led to a huge demand for engineering talent – with Petroleum and Chemical Engineers being some of the most sought-after Professionals. Engineering is a respected and valued Profession that has proven to stand the test-of-time when it comes to career growth and reward. Apart from a major slump in the hiring of engineers in the early eighties – career opportunities have remained vital across the Oil and Gas Sector. Today’s challenge for Recruiting Firms in Canada comes in the form of supply and demand – with career openings for engineers outnumbering eligible candidates. And though this situation forces Headhunters, Recruiting Specialists, and Sourcing Agents to become creative and ingenious in their search for talent – the fact remains that there are numerous amazing career opportunities waiting to be snatched-up by qualified job seekers.
Summit Search Group has offices across Canada and provides recruitment services to hiring clients and career seeking candidates. Acting on behalf of hirers and hires allows Summit’s teams of recruiters to develop detailed insight into the workings of an industry and the needs of all involved. This inside knowledge provides young, less experienced candidates, valuable support and guidance when it comes to negotiating the terms of offered positions. Though the hiring world of engineers is thriving; having the skills of Canada’s Top Recruiting Firm to assist in securing a top career in today’s Oil and Gas Industry is an added bonus. If you are seeking Oil and Gas Employment or have hiring needs – contact one of Summit Search Groups offices today.
