Ten drilling contractor companies participated in IADC’s second Returning Military Campaign job fair at Fort Hood, Texas, in May.
IADC Career Connection (ICC) held its second Returning Military Campaign (RMC) Job Fair at Fort Hood, Texas, on 14 May. It was held in conjunction with the Army Career Alumni Program (ACAP) Semi-Annual Job Fair, which attracted 170 companies from across the US. Ten IADC member companies participated: Bandera Drilling, Chesapeake, ENSCO, Grey Wolf Drilling, Helmerich & Payne, Nabors International, Parker Drilling, Patterson UTI, Pride International and Transocean.
Recruiters met with more than 2,000 military – including artillery soldiers, infantrymen, medics, mechanics, electricians, aviators and even retiring officers – and their families.

Ann Brazzel, vice president of Bandera Drilling, commented, “The young men and women at Fort Hood were a delight to meet. They were prepared with resumes and questions about what was required to work in our industry and at our company.”
IADC believes that by working together as an industry, we can attract our future workforce while simultaneously communicating a positive story to the general public, said ICC manager, Linda Silinsky Kephart.
Another RMC job fair at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs is in the planning stages, with three companies already signed on to participate. Drilling contractors interested in participating should contact Ms Silinsky Kephart at firstname.lastname@example.org .
