An entry level oil rig job seeker can apply without any prior experience or even without formal education, but you can't be someone who is lazy or who lacks talent, or good technical inclinations, or ability to learn and pick up new skills and habits quickly as you go. Roustabouts, roughnecks, galleyhands in the kitchen (kitchen helpers), scaffolders and many other positions existing on oil platform or a rig, require those holding these positions to be physically fit, medically healthy, ready and able to accept the challenges posed by often hostile weather conditions, that at some times turn dangerous. After all, that why all jobs on the oil rigs, even that of an ordinary dishwasher pays extremely well.
Even the simplest job of roustabout or roughneck requires the ability to develop dexterity and sleight while handling heavy duty mechanisms. In any case, if you have any kind of training or expertise you gained in a different industry, they may turn out applicable and transferable to the practical knowledge needed in the upstream oil and gas industry. The most popular and both needed professionals on offshore oil rigs must be those certified in electricity or with mechanical skills, and the guy who are good in handle different mechanisms. As for the previous training - it won't hurt to have one.
The more so, if you used to study as say electrician or mechanic, and turned out able ready to complete the course, it is indicative to the recruiters that you are a person who can be taught things. No mechanical skills and not too apt with electricity? OK, you may be someone who is good at cooking. If so, great entry-level opportunities exist in catering department. If not as an assistant cook or cook's apprentice, successful candidate may start as galley hand. By the way, even you didn't go to college, but have been trained as paramedic, these people are also required on the offshore oil exploration and extraction installations, though without a certificate or diploma the salary they earn is, of course, lower. Many people started very humbly, but then made their way very quickly from the bottom upwards to the top of the career ladder on offshore oil drilling platforms.
An option overlooked by many is to apply by walking in the office, where the hiring for the oil company actually takes place, and to speak in person to the people at HR department. For candidates with no experience it would be both preferable and beneficial to apply for a position on a land based oil rig. Lots of oil fields that offer jobs can be found in North Dakota, Texas, New Mexico, Canada's Alberta and other provinces. Positions like roustabout, derrickman, roughneck, driller and many other have the same responsibilities as on offshore oil platforms. Though the pay is smaller, the work itself is much less safer either. This is a win win situation, but the best and most valuable that you get on land based oil drilling facilities is the experience in the oil &gas industry, which will literally open you a door, when you opt to apply for job offshore, say off the shore of Gulf of Mexico.
