Halliburton – Why Work For Us?


What We Do, Where You'll Fit 

In the coming decades, energy resources will become increasingly difficult to find and access. As one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the upstream energy industry, Halliburton serves the life cycle of the well.

Using the latest geological technologies, we create data that help our customers locate oil and natural gas. When hydrocarbons are located, we provide solutions to determine if oil and gas can be produced. If a well is determined to be viable, we begin production and throughout the life of the field, we help ensure that our customers get optimal production rates. To prevent and respond to emergencies, customers call Halliburton for premier well intervention, pressure control, and pipeline and process services.

Halliburton's team of professionals around the globe provide these services to help our customers meet the world's demand for energy, while maintaining the highest standards of environmental safety.

Whether you're a new graduate, newly qualified or an experienced professional, we have fantastic career opportunities across our organization.

Interviewing Tips

Got an interview coming up? Set yourself up for success by being prepared, self-assured and knowledgeable. These tips can get you going in the right direction.

  • Arrive early to the interview.
  • Arrive prepared with a hard copy of your resume/CV and your transcript (unofficial is fine).
  • Visit Halliburton.com beforehand so you understand the business.
  • Find recent press releases on Halliburton.com so you'll know the latest news about the Company.
  • Be confident.
  • If interviewing on campus, make sure to attend the Company's information session (if available). This gives you more time to shine during the interview rather than asking questions that were already answered in the Company presentation.
  • Be ready to distinguish yourself from the rest of the students who have your same major and graduation date and who are interviewing for the same position.
  • Avoid nervous mannerisms throughout the interview, stay focused, be a good listener and speak clearly and confidently.
  • Be prepared to ask a few questions. We do a good job at our information sessions, but you must have one or two questions left unanswered.
  • If you describe an attribute of yours that is relevant to the position, be prepared to support your claim with examples that illustrate your attribute and how you have applied it successfully. Feel free to draw from your past work experience, course work or projects, even student organization or volunteer opportunities.
  • When presented with a difficult question, take a moment to develop your response rather than blurting out inconsistent, unorganized thoughts.
  • Ask for a business card so you can follow up with the recruiter in case you do not hear back within the stated time frame.
  • After the interview, send the recruiter a thank-you note reinforcing your interest in the position and your appreciation for his or her time.
  • Above all else, be honest and be yourself.

Good luck!

    Good organization and excellent training for each position. Lots of opportunities for advancement


    Only issue is the amount of money. Is the lost paying oil field company around, and has been for years.

    I applied online – interviewed at Halliburton.


    The company made me drive to the location to have the interview which was 2 1/2 hrs away after a quick phone interview. The people were very nice but yet stern. Made you seem inadequate even though they offered the position.
