    Our course year group was sent an email about a junior internship opportunity in the Netherlands with Shell. I applied online, went through online screening tests, then phone interview. I interviewed with an HR person from Germany who normally dealt with graduate programs/assessed internship for Eastern Europe (she originally thought I was interviewing for an assessed internship). The interview consisted of standard 'scripted' questions and an unscripted part where I was able to ask questions about Shell.
