“Oil and gas” and “social media”, are not two terms you would immediately associate together. On a corporate level oil and gas firms may worry that social media would expose their companies to anti-fossil fuel sentiment. However on a personal level social media has never been more important to energy sector professionals than it is today.
To clarify, when we say social media for oil and gas we are not talking about Facebook or broad professional networks like LinkedIn, where you are one individual in a sea of people from every industry and walk of life.
When we say social media for oil and gas, we mean professional networking platforms designed specifically for the energy sector. These platforms allow targeted discussion, ease of connecting with other professionals and crucially the opportunity for “Personal Branding”.
As we all know, branding for businesses is the way one company differentiates itself from another company that is more or less the same. For individuals, personal branding is the opportunity to show unique qualities and to differentiate from the masses of other professionals with a similar job title or field.
“In today’s job market and entrepreneurial landscape, there is no room for being another face in the crowd. You have to separate yourself from the competition. You have to be more appealing to your target audience and you can achieve it by creating a recognisable personal brand”, say personal branding experts Neil Patel and Aaron Agius.
However, personal branding is not just for job seekers, in fact it can be even more important for increasing the value one has to their current employer. Developing relationships with other industry professionals, becoming a respected and well-known name on forums, blogs and discussion boards, will not only impress a recruiter but will also impress your boss.
Within the context of the current downturn, aging workforce and greater technology adoption, personal branding has never been more important for career advancement. Energy professionals, especially in technical fields, are traditionally not natural self-publicists, and many are very conscious of the subtle line between positive brand building and blatant self-promotion. For others it's a case of overcoming the tangible cynicism they feel towards the whole concept of 'personal branding'.
However, this trend is already changing. A joint Microsoft and Accenture study revealed that close to 75% of oil and gas professionals now appreciate the value of social media and collaboration tools in their work. This was an 83% increase compared to a similar poll just one year before.
Of the 275 professionals profiled; 37% said social media and related tools boosts productivity, 95% claimed it helped them with work flexibility and over 36% said that social media aided the ability to complete projects on time and on budget.
Leading oil and gas networking platforms like NrgEdge are specifically designed to suit the
needs of energy professionals in this current turbulent time. Features such as
project databased, discussion forums, networking tools, News feeds help energy
professionals stay in touch with industry and excel within their sector.
Professional networking in oil and gas is transitioning from a “nice to have” to an essential tool for every ambitious energy professional.
