    I was there for IM Summer Intern. I would say great company to work with. This was my first internship and I was scared about my performance, but I was around with the good team. They all are super helpful, learned great things while working there. I would not be what I am now if I was not there.


    The only thing I would say that my mentor is in the other building than me. He's one of the senior manager so he's busy most of the time, sometime it's really hard to catch him up to review my assignments/question.

    Advice to Management

    I would definitely say that reconsider your mentor plan. If intern around with mentor it will help them to perform well within the assigned time period.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BHP Billiton.


    I got an interview via campus recruiting procedures at my university. I didn't get a lot of information about the company upfront- BHP knows it holds a competitive environment and it expects people to seek information for themselves. My interview was more cultural than anything else- the interviewers just wanted to get a feel for my personality and see that I was confident enough to be relaxed throughout the process.
