In an effort to diversify our offerings and add value to our loyal clientele, 2P News is introducing a career recruitment service that will enable us to help match semi-brilliant people to mediocre achieving companies.

We look for the right fit beyond the resume – we use a combined 87 years of industry experience to make the matches based on our thorough knowledge of the inner workings of employers and our clients via their social media activities.

Our specialized team of Recruitment Engineers and Geologists has created specialized software that automatically mines the social media metadata, images, and comments of every applicant – information that plays an integral role in connecting those looking with those offering.

Are you geophysicist who posted pictures and descriptions of yourself time-travelling after far too many drinks at your last corporate Stampede party? We know just the company for you. Are you that engineer who can’t stop sharing on your neighbourhood facebook page how many cool tools you have and side projects you’re working on? Consider yourself hired.

Below is the first job posting; more to come. Enjoy.
