    The PPDM Association’s bi-annual Job Market survey is now open. This anonymous survey, covering topics from job roles, experience, benefits, compensation and more, is your opportunity to contribute to our industry. Participants will have access to a dashboard of results to see where they fit in with the rest of industry. This critical body of research is designed to capture important global data to help establish and support our professional discipline. Your participation is key to securing our future as recognized professionals, and enable us to provide current information to future generations of petroleum data managers. Contribute to something big and take the Survey. Thank you for participating and we encourage you to pass this Survey along to your energy data management colleagues.
