Saturday Star 2010-04-03 – Job Opportunities

April 5, 2010

First off, if you need my help to submit your CVs, donate to the blog, and I’ll review your CV to see if it is worthy of my (and my associates’) expectations. If you can’t figure out how to donate, you are definitely Autom8
fodder.

  • Synergy is looking for lead safety engineers, safety specialists, junior and lead process engineers and technical writers. We’re on an expansion drive, people! Visit the Synergy website for contact details. For leads, you need 5 years plus experience in the oil & gas industry. For safety specialist applicants, you need to be well versed in HAZOP, HAZID, QRA, FERA and Formal Safety Assessment. Ah, heck. If you have more than 5 years experience in O&G, apply. If you have less than 5, send a donation to the offshore account, and still get abuse. For juniors, go pick up a copy of Cambridge’s ChemEng syallabus, and go study like the Tripods (all of them) are tomorrow.
  • RasGas is looking for Field Operators, Operation Maintainer, Technician, Shift Process Operators. CVs to be submitted here. You can phone the local recruiters at +603 2078 1918. I believe RasGas is a JV, one of the partners being ExxonMobil.

No food recommendations this week, as I haven’t gone anywhere new. I really need to buck up on doing marketing rounds.

If you’re looking for a book recommendation, I heartily recommend Daemon. It’s an exciting introduction to the way the new techno-thriller genre is going. Well, not new, everyone’s heard of William Gibson and Neuromancer
, but think of this as moving techno-thrillers from military and spycraft to the ‘Net, IP addresses and MMORPG. I can’t wait for the second part of the duology
to come out.
