Oilfield Joke: Need to hire a Drilling Engineer......

Oilfield Joke: Need to hire a Drilling Engineer......

A big oilfield company was needing to hire a Drilling Engineer but had a problem as they had way too many candidates for the one position that was available. 

After interviewing each of them on a broad array of topics they needed to narrow down the group. The human resource director, who has PHD in Philosophy, come up with a one question test. 

The prospective Drilling Engineers were all gathered into a meeting room. The HR Director picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board: “Using everything you have learned, give me your best argument to prove that this chair does not exist.”

Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion.

Some applicants wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. 

However,one member of the class, a former roughneck, finished in less than a minute.

Weeks later when the position was filled by the former roughneck, the rest of the applicants wondered how he could have gotten the job when he had barely written anything at all.

His answer consisted of two words:


“What chair?”
