Noble Corporation Actively Recruiting Military Veterans
by Lynn Earle
Noble Corporation www.noblecorp.com celebrates its 85th anniversary in 2006. Very few companies, and even fewer drilling contractors, can claim this milestone. But there is more to the Noble story than just its years of existence. Building on the vision of the Company’s founders, the company has grown from a one rig operation in 1921 to one of the largest offshore drilling contractors in the world today.
Today, Noble is a global leader in the offshore drilling industry, with rigs operating in all the major offshore producing areas of the world.
Noble has been successful by maintaining a conservative financial policy, positioning itself to adapt to the ever changing world energy market and meeting customers’ needs and demands. At the same time, the Company has one of the most experienced and well trained work forces in the industry.

Ex-military personnel typically enjoy successful transition at Noble explains
Noble was one of the first drilling contractors to recruit transitioning military personnel. The company has formalized the practice by employing former military recruiters to attract military personnel into the company. Dylan Raymond formerly a recruiter for the U.S. Army spreads the word about Noble at military transition locations and other websites veterans visit to look for new careers www.hireveterans.com , www.militaryresumes.com, www.civilianjobnews.com, www.acap.army.mil to name a few. When I speak to transitioning military personnel I speak from a position we relate. “I talk to them about stability, camaraderie, and the strong safety culture at Noble, they understand that. Family orientation and safety orientation is something that military personnel are very familiar with.
Growing Demand and Competition
Demand and competition for labor, and ex-military workers in particular promise to keep Raymond busy for the next few years. Noble is hiring another ex-military person to assist with recruiting the military population.
We are currently accepting applications for entry level “Roustabouts”, Mechanics, Electricians, Electronics Technicians, Material Coordinators, Sub Sea Engineers, Operations Management Development Program trainees and Health, Safety and environment managers.
Raymond Believes Noble is a great environment for people trained in the military. He has a total of 18 years in the U.S. Army and U.S. Army Reserves including one year training senior leaders in
