According to Martin Halsall, Director of External Engagement, it’s important that students consider their future career before the end of their course. That’s why alongside our business degrees we ensure that students understand the industry that they are entering and prepare for life after college.
To help, oil and gas students understand their industry and how to secure a footing, GSM London invited international energy company Halliburton to our Greenwich campus to explain more.
Baba Sheba, Head of Department (Logistics and Operations) explains: ‘Halliburton is one of the world’s largest providers of products and services in the energy industry and it has a presence in over 80 countries. This is a great opportunity for our students to meet people from the industry and discuss their future career options. Three representatives from Halliburton attended the event and spoke with students for over two hours. I really appreciate that.’
Halliburton and students also found the event beneficial.
Tola Ogunbiyi, Regional Talent Acquisition Manager said: ‘The students were completely engaged and interacted throughout. That’s what employers like to see. It was great to connect with the students before and after the event.’
Alan Ezejico, a BSc Oil and Gas Management student said: ‘It’s been a really impressive event and the seminar was really helpful. I didn’t know about Halliburton and their role in Africa until now – I was especially interested in their work in Lagos where I’m from.’
Cabdulaqaadir Cali, a student and representative of the Oil and Gas Society said: ‘What stood out for me, was finding out how the recruitment process worked and what a large company like Halliburton is looking for.’
