According to reports, Halliburton is adding 2,000 US jobs within the next month and ramping up activity much faster than anticipated to match surging oil field growth. 

"We are coming off of a historic trough, so what we have to add back is almost unprecedented," said Halliburton Chairman and CEO Dave Lesar. 

Lesar said the company is spending more money now to protect its market share and ensure future profits. 

"Across the board, they're back in the market for hiring new people," said Byron Pope, an energy analyst with Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. in Houston. 

"The competition is going to get tougher by the day. Then they'll need to recruit less seasoned and experienced people."
