Ing. Peter Gajdoš
Toolpusher My name is Peter Gajdoš. I graduated from the Technical University in Košice, Faculty of Mining, Ecology, Process Control and Geotechnology in the Oil & Gas Industry. I must admit that I came upon this subject quite by chance. I had only one goal in mind when I enrolled – to graduate from university and have a title in front of my name. However, over the first two years of study, I realized I had chosen well. All of the technical classes I attended were of great interest to me. I was inspired by presentations given by companies vying for future graduates while still in school. Apart from a job offer, they were also providing us with the opportunity to have first-hand experience in applying our knowledge in practice. The presentation given by MND Drilling & Services captivated me so much that I decided to give it a try. I was able to gain considerable hands-on experience during the three-month summer job I had been offered, which I found useful in my further studies. At about that time, I began to entertain the idea of specializing in this line of work. While still at university, I completed another three-month field training with the company, which also assisted me in writing my Bachelor’s and Master’s theses. After graduation, I spent 4 months in the U.S. working on my English language skills in particular and subsequently joined MND DS as Assistant Toolpusher and later as Night Toolpusher on workover rigs. After seven months I made my way to Crew No. 1 to work on the Bentec 350AC drilling rig. I was surprised and at the same time very happy about the new position. It is one of the most advanced drilling rigs, which the company operates both domestically and abroad. I currently work as an Assistant Toolpusher or a Night Toolpusher. My employment with MND Drilling & Services brings me immense satisfaction. The company prospers and is even expanding, while offering security, stability and an opportunity for professional growth and development to its employees. It is open to hiring young people willing to work on themselves. In addition, its employees can enjoy great benefits which are not a given in today’s business environment. The company invests in employee education such as intensive language courses. Considering all of the perks and the truly unusual and interesting work, it is definitely worth trying your luck at MND Drilling & Services.
Bc. Jana Fadrná
HSEQ Department Manager I majored in Sport Management at the University of Hradec Králové. I joined the company in 2007, about 3 years after graduation, as HR Development Coordinator. After several months spent working as a translator at a well site abroad, a post I volunteered for, I was offered a chance to pursue a different activity within the company. At present, I hold the position of HSEQ Department Manager. Although I did not remain in the field I pursued in school, I have been able to enhance my education and qualifications through daily practice and via training programs that the company supports. MND D&S started me on a career which I enjoy and feel fulfilled doing. What matters is to have motivation, passion and enthusiasm for what you do.
