Job Search and Apply
Applying to join Baker Hughes is a surprisingly simple three-stage process:
1. Online application
Go to the global map, select the region of the world you’re eligible to work in, and review the current opportunities. Select the position that interests you and follow the instructions to complete your online application. At this stage, we’ll be considering your general technical understanding and your job preferences.

2. Selection process
We use a structured process to select and assess applicants. A variety of selection methods are used to determine and identify the right candidates with the right skills:
For field engineer candidates only, the Baker Hughes Experience is our 2-day assessment center, which takes place at a venue in your region. It is an opportunity for you to learn more about us and what we do, as well as for us to meet you and learn about your strengths, skills, experience, and career ambitions.
If you meet our criteria, we’ll make you an offer, subject to clearing pre-employment checks.
