I've run down the roads Domestic and Internationally from these 3 sites for hmmmm... 90% of my gigs for 10-14 years now.
Just purdy much got my next expat gig from LinkedIn.http://www.indeed.com/q-cwi-jobs.htmlhttp://www.rigzone.com/jobs/search_job_results.asphttp://www.roadtechs.com/
(This used to be known as Road Whore
back at the turn of the century when I first started using the internet for work search...)
Ah ya mon... Certs be good!
Make sure your CWI is current. Any real job (That pays more than 30 clams an hour) is going to want to see that date on your card. I always insist on seeing an original in my hand if I am involved in the hiring. Not falling for some Photo Shop artistry...
Too many pure CWI's out there thinking that's all they need and then wondering why they can't rustle more than 25 clams an hour. Can you say Aerotek? Not putting them down 100%, I HAVE worked for them in the past and they still call me. Sometimes it's not all about the money but Location, location, location. Me, I'd just as soon get by OK in Wyoming than take that $100 an hour gig in Whiting Indiana that's been ongoing for a year or so now. I think they are about to wrap that one up and Swift is hiring for it but I do believe the rate has gone down lately to about 45/hr.
Gotta mix in a little NDE, maybe some API, ICC...
How ever many cards you can stuff in yer wallet's what's gonna get you the good job (better, PAY!) over the next "pure" CWI who has limited experience and nothing else to offer.
Go to Hellier or Biring or Whomever and expand your horizons. Yeah, it cost $$$$... but ya gotta spend it to make it.
BTW, that ole timer thing is a kinda sensitive issue for me these days....... I prefer "Seasoned Veteran".
