GE Oil & Gas is relying on a multiprong approach. It’s hosting mid-career prospects at a special lunch this week. It’s sponsoring a “speed networking” event for college students so they can meet a variety of GE executives. And it’s trying to find what recruiters call passive job seekers — top-notch candidates who don’t even know yet that they’re looking for a job. GE, which has about 5,500 employees in the Houston area, is also hoping that a lunch it’s hosting for mid-career candidates who have jobs somewhere else will lead to some hiring. The 50 or so candidates, who were identified through LinkedIn and Facebook as well as through resume postings on the big job boards, include engineers, sales people and marketing managers.
GE agreed to acquire Lufkin Industries, Inc., a leading provider of advanced pumping technologies used by energy companies to extract more oil and gas faster. Lufkin and GE know each other well. For more than three decades, Lufkin, which is based in Lufkin, Texas, has been supplying GE with heavy-duty, ultra-precision technology like high-performance gear boxes that transmit in excess of 80,000 horsepower from GE aeroderivative gas turbines to electric generators. Lufkin employs 4,500 workers in 40 countries. Some 600 high-skilled Lufkin workers regularly touch GE products. They use CNC lathes, boring mills, ultra-precision tooth grinders and other machinery to manufacture parts now serving as far as the North Sea and the coast of Africa.
