Rigzone Launches iPhone App (UK)

Iphone_europeRigzone has today announced a new, free iPhone app that allows oil and gas professionals to find and apply to jobs, as well as read, respond to and share the latest industry news and events.  The app allows more than one million energy professionals that use Rigzone on a monthly basis to personalize their use of the site and optimize the time they spend managing their career.

“By dint of the industry, oil professionals are often focused on highly specialised areas each having different perspectives of their own career path.  We therefore wanted professionals to be able to easily customize and access the information they need regardless of whether they are onshore in the office, offshore on a rig or aboard a ship further afield,” said Dominic Simpson, Head of Sales EMEA, APAC of Rigzone, the leading online resource for the oil and gas industry delivering content, data, advertising and career services.

Through the app, oil and gas professionals can quickly search and identify relevant job opportunities and apply for thousands of positions with ease.  Career opportunities based on location, experiences and interests can be targeted, and professionals can designate that they are notified immediately of distinctive matches.  In addition, the app is always in sync with their existing Rigzone profile, which ensures a professional’s most current CV is always available. 

Likewise, tailoring is available for Rigzone’s news and analysis which will keep oil and gas professionals on top of the latest trends, news, discoveries and innovations in the industry.  With instant notification, professionals can quickly share news through their online professional and social networks.
