FALL 2019

The SPE – GCS invites you to participate in the 6th edition of the “Upstream Oil & Gas Professionals Hiring Event,” on October 15th, 2019 at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center.

Following the success of the inaugural event in March 2017, we continue to provide a platform connecting experienced job seekers with upstream oil and gas companies to fill open positions. This is also a platform to help the industry retain qualified and experienced professionals, preventing losing them during the industry’s hard times. The SPE is partnering with other organizations to make the event a mirror of the oil industry. Thus, all upstream disciplines are invited to participate in the event.
