With oil prices hovering around historic lows, and showing little prospect of improvement, the industry is already in a process of contraction. The world is producing too much oil for its needs and new supplies from fracking in the USA are adding to the glut.

It is likely that further redundancies will take place over the coming months and years.

The odds are still against it, but we could just enter another recession similar to banking crisis of 2008. What might happen to your job then, and what can you do about it now?
This article will help you to structure and compose a CV that conveys the information you need, and that looks good.
