LARAMIE — Rendezvous just aren't what they used to be in Wyoming, but that may be a good thing for some job seekers crossing the real-world fault line.
About 25 companies will be on hand to head-hunt the newest crop of geoscience talent from universities across the country at the 11th annual Rocky Mountain Rendezvous (RMR), one of five regional job fairs sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society for Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). In recent years, about 200 students have attended the rendezvous. It will take place Sept. 21-24 at the University of Wyoming Conference Center and Hilton Garden Inn.
Students from all over use the event as an opportunity to visit with oil, gas and environmental industry representatives to showcase their work. Participating companies support a number of activities, including field trips, short courses, resume and interviewing workshops, technical poster presentations, receptions and dinners, and even formal interviews.
Chevron, Shell, ExxonMobil, Anadarko, Encana Oil and Gas, BP Corporation, ConocoPhillips, Marathon Oil, Hess Corporation and Schlumberger will be among the companies with representatives at this year's RMR.
AAPG is one of the world's largest professional geological societies. SEG is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the science of geophysics and the education of exploration geophysicists.
