    Interview Details

    Although we speak portuguese here in Brazil, the language of the interview was english. First, he asked me to talk about myself, about my qualities and what I think about my area of expertise. Then, after some chat, he told me a little about how people feel working there and asked me what I think about that.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I responded to an advert in New Scientist and sent my CV to the HR department. I was invited to interview around 1 month later. The day started with me having to give a ~1hr presentation on a research area (I presented my PhD work). I then had 4x30 minute interviews with scientific advisers and the manager and research director of the department I would be joining.

    Interview Questions
    • Talked about my PhD, why I wanted to join etc. Nothing overly technical about the oil and gas industry as it was assumed I had no real prior knowledge.   Answer Question
