The difference between a contractor and a consultant is actually quite wide. If you take the example above in this blog about welders, then there is an obvious difference. A contractor will post a job specifically citing the skills needed, whether for an above or below contract, whereas a consultant is someone more tuned into the business itself. Someone who can pinpoint leaks in the oilrig and tell you how to plug them (metaphorically!) like the people on the books at Von Essen Consulting do.

There is really a great career on offshore job. I can attest that myself. I have been working offshore for 5 years now and I provide good money to my family's needs.

Start your career now.

Reading this does get you excited about working on an oil rig,I always watch shows on tv about the life on a rig and even knowing how different it is it would be uplifting to be apart of that lifstile.I have been a certified welder for a few year and have been welding and doing milwrite work for the past 15 years but this is a dieing trade with very little pay around hear.It's sad but thats the way it is,To make that kind of money i could start to enjoy life with my wife and kids.Some day i hope to find a company that is hireing and show them i have what it takes to get the job done no matter how long it takes...Thanks for reading..matty.

I also got a job in an oil rig as a welder from the job opportunities on this site http://offshorejob.com. Thank you Baker's for such a nice post.
