Fort Hood job fair slated for 4 February

Posted on 06 January 2009

Fort Hood is the largest transition base in the United States, and ACAP anticipates attendance by more than 2,000 soldiers who are transitioning out of the military and looking for new careers. In addition to drilling industry companies, the job fair is expected to attract more than 170 companies from other industries.  

IADC launched RMC in late 2007 exclusively for drilling contractor companies. Job fairs were held at Fort Hood in Texas and Fort Carson in Colorado, both proving successful in recruiting military personnel for drilling industry jobs around the world. Due to significant interest from non-drilling contractor members, IADC president Dr Lee Hunt opened the RMC program to all member companies in late 2008.

The 12 companies participating in the 4 February event are: ENSCO International, Chesapeake Energy, DCL Mooring and Rigging, Grey Wolf Drilling, Impact Selector, Muehlhan Offshore, MD Cowan, Patterson UTI, Secure Drilling, T H. Hill Associates, Transocean and Viking Drilling.  

IADC is working with ACAP to plan possible job fairs at Fort Bragg and Marine Corps Base – Camp Lejeune, both in North Carolina, in 2009. Companies interested in participating in future RMC events should contact ICC manager Linda Silinsky Kephart at linda.silinsky-kephart@iadc.org.
