Project management job in oilsands

Hello, I'm a local candidate with PMP designation which generally is applicable to managing projects in all industries. My background is IT and have been involved in several projects that are IT based in the finance industry. I observed that most jobs related to project management ask for experience in construction or oil sands. How do I go about gaining this experience or set my feet on the door? I need your help and assistance guys!

It's kind of a catch 22, most companies want people with oil and gas experience but to get it one of the companies need to hire you.

Having said that, there are IT projects in a number of oil and gas companies, and depending on your background and experience you might be able to land one of them and latter transition to a more general PM position.
