Review:

Rigzone's global job board features oil and gas industry news specific to each country and a candidate database spanning professionals in offshore, onshore, office-based, and field-based positions. The site assists with recruiting all levels of employees, from entry-level to executives, as well as business-support staff.

Rigzone has a page dedicated to Canadian jobs and industry news, but does not offer local pricing or customer support lines. Traffic to Rigzone from Canada is also limited.

Highlights:

  • Rigzone offers a dedicated Canadian jobs page.
  • The site features a resume database.
  • Each recruiter is assigned a client services representative to assist them with any issues.
  • There is a wide candidate pool available for all oil and gas industry positions.
  • The platform features candidate management tools on the recruiter dashboard.
  • The site offers recruitment tips and advice.
  • The platform features employer branding options.
  • The site provides industry news specific to Canada.
  • The site offers an equipment marketplace, links to training resources, and information on industry events.

Shortcomings:

  • There are no free posting options.
  • Pricing is only available in U.S. dollars.
  • An ad boost is only available with the bulk job posting packages.
  • The site lacks social media sharing.
  • The pricing is high when compared to other sites, such as MiningOilandGasJobs.com.
  • There is no French language option.
  • Only 3.1% of the traffic to Rigzone comes from Canada.

Reputation:

Rigzone has over 100 positive customer reviews on their Facebook page. There are also some mixed reviews on Reddit that discuss whether Rigzone is useful for entry-level candidates.

Rigzone vs. MiningOilandGasJobs.com:

Like Rigzone, MiningOilandGasJobs.com is a global job board for the oil and gas industry. However, while users can filter their job searches by location, MiningOilandGasJobs.com doesn't have the same dedicated pages that Rigzone offers, particularly for news blogs. On the other hand, MiningOilandGasJobs.com is far more affordable than Rigzone.

Rigzone vs. Energy People:

Energy People and Rigzone are global job boards for the energy industry with industry news. However, where Rigzone features a dedicated Canadian news page, Energy People lacks this feature and requires users to search for Canadian-based news. Energy People does offer social media marketing with their gold and platinum plans, which Rigzone lacks.

Rigzone vs. Careermine:

Both Rigzone and Careermine are global sites that cater to the oil and gas industry. However, Careermine also caters to jobs in construction, engineering, environmental sciences, mining, and more. It is also more affordable than Rigzone, with a starting price of US$450.00 compared to Rigzone's starting price of US$550.00.
