Job openings in gas companies served as a sign that the petroleum industry is doing well. But growth will be achieved better once better professional talent is recruited. Together, progress is achieved and everyone benefits from an improving economy and increased job vacancy.

In order to define better the kind of quality that gas company job openings today, we need to describe the requirements, duties and responsibilities that each job is demanding.

Rotations throughout several departments from accounting to operations

Most vacancies can be traced to the accounting department. But knowing how your job title is different from what you occasionally do, expect rotations on other departments too like in operations. The finance department is closely related to accounting anyway so expect to crunch numbers while being told to drop by in those departments.

Accounting is a skill that is immediately needed in a company that exists mainly for profit. It extends to departments like the aforementioned finance department, claims management and affiliate billing. Auditing is crucial to tracing some expenses that may have gone above the expected overhead apart from ensuring that tax requirements be put on paper. Operations research also needs accounting personnel as there are projects that needed funding. Much of the approval rests on the accounting personnel as they would identify the sensibility of the project proposed.

Customer service representatives

This is the department that handles customer-related concerns like service trouble, credit extensions, collection issues and billing adjustments. It sounded a little similar to telecommunication companies with CSRs in charge of pacifying customers when it comes to billing issues.

Bilingual applicants are preferred. In an area where immigrant communities have grown in numbers, catering to their services is expressed best by speaking in their language. Those who speak a second language will handle a market that needs to understand the company guidelines and procedures in their native tongue.

Duties include encoding and updating customer information, tracking orders through the computer with the help of serial numbers and negotiates with customers regarding billing discrepancies that need to be addressed as soon as possible. While most data is processed with the help of computers, having human resources to get the data processed, stored and updated is still highly recommendable.

Part-time meter reader transitional

The reader would be in charge of a tablet or a hand-held computer. He or she would use these gadgets in locating the stations. The same gadgets would be used in reading gas meters in behalf of the customers.

The degree needed would be any 4-year course earned. Applicants with degrees related to this job would be preferred. Most applicants are advised to be at least 18 years old and eligible to work in the host country like the United States. And since it would involved getting around the are reading gas meters, you should own a driver’s license. Brace yourself for a panel interview and several tests, written and oral.

Compensation is measured on an hourly basis. Some gas company websites are blunt enough in mentioning rates on the websites where the same job openings are posted. That makes the information streamlined and organized for interested parties to scan over. The paid mileage may or may not be mentioned though because you need to show up for your interview to know that. If the job posting mentioned that too, much better. The kind of transparency some companies apply on their job recruitment program can get the right people applying for the job if you would ask me.

The economy is getting back on track. The only thing left for you to do is be qualified enough to get into these jobs. Take the initiative to apply for these jobs and prove how hiring you is the best decision they have ever made. Hope that I was of help to job hunters out there.
