Concerns have been raised regarding a lack of vocational training in degree programs in Mexico. Graduates in relevant degrees such as geology or engineering tend to lack practical experience in their field. Companies entering the market will need to create schemes to help these graduates ease into the real aspects of the working environment, or take a chance on candidates with no work experience. Mexico has a good university system but it could perhaps interact more with the private sector for training purposes and to increase the employability of their graduates. Mexico needs to invest more in its education system to ensure the country is equipped with the correct talent to the the oil and gas industry’s future needs.
