Oil and Gas Professional Recruiting

I recommend Oliva Consulting Group for finding highly qualified candidates. Michael was very helpful in our search for a Drilling Engineer, Landman & Geologist. He brought forward very qualified candidates quickly where other well-known, and more costly recruiters failed to do so.
