Burley Blanton


I have a lot of interest in working in the Oil Field and Coal Mines.  Ever since I finished High School I have devoted myself to making a career in one of the above fields. Since 2005 I have performed a variety of duties, such as; Working as a Derrickman, Equipment Operator, Laborer, and helping out wherever I am needed in the field. I feel like I would be a good employee for any company because I have experience, I'm hard working, and will do what it takes to be successful in this field of work.
