THERE was a moment when I thought we weren’t going to do this anymore. The nergy industry is increasingly moving to the digital sphere, and that’s no more
exemplary than in the media that covers it. Magazines are being replaced by websites,
and for a moment we thought PennEnergy Jobs Energy Workforce would be making
that same transition. It’s worked for other brands in the Penn Well family, and although
we were sad to say goodbye to this tried and true format, we were excited for what would
But not so fast! Just as we were ready to leap fully into an on-demand digital format,
we realized we had too much good content to deny it a place in physical perpetuity.
So, like the Phoenix of legend, the

take flight again. This may be the
last magazine formatted edition of
PEJEW, but it may not. We’re going

dictate what’s best.
Speaking of the best, the industry
is constantly searching for the best;
the best talent, the brightest minds, the hardest workers. We look at how to find the best
employees for the big crew change on page 9.
The weather of 2014 wasn’t the best, and it played havoc on the energy industry,
especially on the retail side. We look at the effects of this perfect storm on page 3.
How do you become the best? Is there a single path, and can it really be quantified?
We look at the good and bad of certification on page 6.
Who’s the best offshore? From the companies ruling the waters today to those who
will be floating above the rest tomorrow, we look at some of the biggest names offshore
on page 15.
How do we do better? Hardware failures can be frustrating, but one company is
solving the problem. We look at how they did it on page 13.
We have to be ready for what’s next, while still throwing our best effort at what we do
today. That’s how we can strive to be the best.
Let’s get to work!
Like the Legend of
“We have to be ready for what’s
next, while still throwing our best
effort at what we do today. That’s
how we can strive to be the best.”
