    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Talisman Energy in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Fairly run of the mill interview. The interview was behavioural based and included me describing my past experiences. The interviewer was very enthusiastic and I could tell we was very interested in my skill set. He made an effort to follow-up after the interview and set-up a meeting with key personnel after I had been offered a job.
