More than 350 engineers from more than 100 companies at Chevron, ExxonMobil and Caterpillar will attend a tech conference in Los Angeles to discuss their work and their future.
The conference, dubbed “Chevron Engineering Week,” is expected to be the largest gathering of engineers in a decade.
The job posting said Chevron is hiring for engineers and project managers in the “high-demand field of computer engineering.”
The tech industry is undergoing a massive wave of outsourcing.
Many companies have outsourced large parts of their operations to China, Mexico, Brazil and India.
And in the past decade, engineers have also found work in the healthcare, energy and finance industries, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
A job listing for an engineer in the tech industry, posted by Chevron in 2016, said he/she “has experience with high performance and high-end hardware and software systems.”
Chevrons hiring policy is unclear.
The company has a hiring process that requires applicants to pass a series of background checks.
The post was deleted on Monday, but the company has been sending out an email saying it “has taken the steps necessary to ensure our engineers are well-trained and qualified for the positions.”
The post also said the “career-focused” nature of the job posting did not preclude applicants from being hired for other roles.
Chevros hiring policy on engineering jobs, which does not specify how long an engineer must have worked at the company, did not specify whether the engineer must be current at Chevron.
