Venezuela Government Agency Looking For Unemployed Oil Workers

government's Venpres news agency reported Wednesday.

The vacancies, advertised at the ministry's unemployment offices
across the country, are for Petroleum Engineers, Refinery Technicians
and Supervisors, Gas Technicians and Supervisors and Computer
Engineers, according to the report.

other critical sectors.

But analysts have said it won't be easy to restart operations with
new crews....
