Congrats Katherine, on your full-time job with ExxonMobil!
Can you walk us through the steps you took to get this job?
I actually took a chance and interviewed with them my freshman year. Obviously, I didn’t have the experience I needed for an internship, but it helped me forge a relationship with the company and the recruiting team. After an internship with another company, I took a chance and interviewed with them again. This time, I had the leadership experience, business acumen, and maturity that their internship demanded. I highly enjoyed my summer internship with them at an out of state refinery, where I was completely immersed into the world of oil and gas. I successfully finished my project and forged connections I hope to grow when I start full time.
If someone wants a job like yours, what advice would you give them?
Don’t try to force yourself to fit into a company’s work atmosphere and be confident that with time you can adapt and learn anything! If you follow this advice, then you’ll find the internship that’s right for you!
Congrats again, Katherine!
