What makes ToilOil’s industry insights different? 2017-07-08T18:16:51+00:00

It all comes down to our data sources specifically our Industry Insiders who work full-time in the oil and gas industry so they hear of project and contract information often well before it has been officially announced. The majority of our submissions are short and to the point as opposed to long news articles. Although we have contacts within the media industry we aren’t journalists or professional writers, which should be evident based on our writing styles not to mention our spelling and grammatical errors.

How is ToilOil.com different to typical job sites? 2017-07-08T18:16:52+00:00

Good question! The other job sites serve a great purpose however as a recruiter / employer for the energy industry your job postings can easily get lost amongst other job postings so you’re not effectively targeting the correct audience. We are focused entirely on providing recruiters / employers with the most efficient and effective means of connecting with oil, gas and renewable energy workers. We aim to keep our approach as straightforward as possible so that you can easily maintain control of your recruitment strategy.

We are also continually building on our industry information sections to further support you and our job seekers.

How is ToilOil.com different to typical job sites? 2017-07-08T18:16:52+00:00

Good question! The other job sites serve a great purpose however as an energy worker you can easily get lost amongst the job seeking crowd and can find yourself wasting valuable time searching and applying for positions, which aren’t suitable for you. ToilOil.com is focused entirely on connecting international oil, gas and renewable energy workers with recruiters / employers. Most of the other sites have become slow and cumbersome so our goal is to keep ToilOil.com as user friendly as possible so you can find suitable jobs and recruiters can find you.

We are also continually building on our industry insider and resource sections to further support you with your job search and day-to-day business.

How accurate are the insights? 2017-07-08T18:16:52+00:00

We’re not perfect. Our respected contributors work in the industry for operators and service companies so they have direct access to insights. We pride ourselves on publishing insights before they have been formally announced but as the industry is always evolving that means that we occasionally get it wrong.

Why can’t I post jobs and search for CVs / resumes? 2017-08-17T20:14:24+00:00

You may not have purchased the required products. You can review your purchased products in your ‘My Account’ section. However, if you have previously purchased a product and you are still having difficulties please contact us so we can support you.

Please note that for first time job postings and CV / resume database access your payment needs to pass through our review process and we will also review your company profile. This process typically takes 24-72 hours. Future purchases tend to be processed quicker since the review process is streamlined. Protecting the information and privacy of our job seekers is of paramount importance to us so we hope that you will be patient during the review process.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Why can’t I use my ToilOil CV / resume to apply? 2017-07-08T18:16:52+00:00

When you are redirected to the recruiter’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS) you are unable to use your ToilOil.com CV / resume however recruiters and employers who have access to our CV / resume database can still search for you if your CV / resume is visible.

Can I submit my insights / updates? 2017-08-17T20:13:16+00:00

Absolutely. We have regular contributors covering specific companies and countries however we appreciate all submissions. Members will see prompts to submit their insights / updates whilst non-members can submit insights through our contact us page.

Can I direct job seekers to my website / application form? 2017-07-08T18:16:53+00:00

Absolutely! We understand that you might have your own Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and tools for filtering candidates. When you post your job you will be provided with the option to accept and track applicants through ToilOil.com or redirect them to a different website. If you redirect applicants to a third-party website we will still track the number of views and ‘apply clicks’ so you can continue to assess our value.

Why can’t I see my job applications? 2017-07-08T18:16:53+00:00

The job may have been deleted. Otherwise, if the job is still being advertised then the recruiter / employer most likely requested that candidates be redirected to their own website or Applicant Tracking System (ATS). In such cases we are unable to confirm if you completed the application process and therefore ToilOil.com will not track the application.

If I submit an insight will you share my name or other personal details? 2017-07-08T18:16:53+00:00

No! We respect your privacy and understand that you may be sharing confidential information so we will also keep your details confidential.

As a recruiter / employer does it cost to use ToilOil.com? 2017-07-08T18:16:53+00:00

There is no cost for recruiters / employers to create an account and browse the ToilOil.com jobs section. However, let’s be honest, we also need to cover our costs to ensure we can continue to evolve and we are obviously not charging job seekers to post their CV / resume or search for jobs. As such, there are costs involved to access certain features of the site such as recruiters / employers posting jobs and searching the extensive CV / resume database. This also assists with ensuring that job postings are genuine.

Who will my CV / resume be visible to? 2017-08-17T20:16:16+00:00

You have a lot of control over your CV / resume visibility, which can be managed through the ‘My Account’ section of ToilOil.com Jobs. When creating or editing your CV / resume you can choose to have it visible to recruiters / employers so employers (e.g. Shell, BP and Halliburton) that have access to the CV / resume database can find your details when they complete a CV / resume search. If you do not select this option then your CV / resume will not show up in search results but will still be visible to anyone that has your unique ToilOil.com CV / resume link, which you’re welcome to share with others.

You can also choose to make your CV / resume hidden at any time so it is only visible to you or for whatever reason you can choose to delete it however we warn you that once it has been deleted we cannot recover the information.

I submitted an insight / update but didn’t receive a response? 2017-07-08T18:16:54+00:00

We appreciate and review all submissions however we do not necessarily respond to every message / email. Please note that we also try to verify any submissions prior to publishing them. If however you feel that your submission may have been overlooked then we would encourage you to please resubmit it.

How can I update my company profile and account information? 2017-08-17T20:16:08+00:00

Do you screen recruiters / employers? 2017-07-08T18:12:23+00:00

Yes we do! We do our best to ensure that only genuine recruiters / employers have access to our CV / resume database, which includes a multiphase review process before access is granted. We also review jobs in the attempt to ensure that jobs are only posted by genuine recruiters / employers. However, we are unable to make any guarantees as such we suggest that you also review our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use for further information on how we use your information and protect your privacy.

Why do the writing styles differ? 2017-07-08T18:12:02+00:00

Our Industry Insiders cover specific companies and countries and come from a range of backgrounds. We aren’t professional journalists so you will notice that writing styles differ from insight to insight. Hopefully all of our submissions are however legible.

Can I use my recruiter / employer account to access ToilOil’s Industry Insights? 2017-07-08T18:12:03+00:00

No. Industry Insider accounts are completely separate to recruiter / employer accounts so you will need to register a separate account for your personal use. We maintain separate servers and databases since each service is unique.

Does it cost to use ToilOil.com to post my CV / resume or apply for a job? 2017-07-08T18:12:23+00:00

Not for you it doesn’t! You’re a job seeker so why would we wish to charge you to look for your next opportunity?

For complete transparency, it should however be noted that we do offer paid services to job seekers such as prioritizing your CV / resume so it is amongst the first in search results and career and other resources. These paid services may assist you greatly with your job search however they are entirely optional so please take your time to decide what is best for you or feel free to reach out to us to seek further clarity.

Is there an Industry Insights newsletter? 2017-07-08T18:12:02+00:00

How can I delete my account? 2017-08-17T20:17:20+00:00

If you are no longer looking for a job or you have found a new job then congratulations! Please note that you can edit your CV / resume and make it hidden until it is time to update it for your next challenge.
