The oil and gas talent of tomorrow has been given advice on how to make it in the industry.
Transition – a programme organised by AFBE-UK Scotland and sponsored by Shell – took place at Woodbank House, North Deeside Road, Aberdeen.
The event was to help students and graduates prepare for the move from academic studies to the world of work. AFBE-UK Scotland promotes engineering as a career choice among young people from various backgrounds and under-represented groups.
The day-long event featured activities geared at preparing undergraduate and postgraduate students including - mock interviews, assessments, CV reviews and networking experience.
Dr Ollie Folayan, chairman of AFBE-UK Scotland, said: “The opportunity for students to learn from oil industry professionals was too good to miss. Experienced people were on hand to pass on tips on what to expect when trying to land that first job. In addition, there was the opportunity to go through mock interviews and a gain a better understanding of real interview scenarios.”
The event was open to students and recent graduates of the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University.
