SPE Announces Winner of First Energy Apprentice Contest
The Aberdeen branch of The Society of Petroleum Engineers has announced the winner of its first-ever Energy Apprentice competition, which is aimed at preparing students for what oil and gas employers expect to see from graduate job candidates.
The half-day event saw around 50 students from universities across Scotland battle it out for a $500 prize towards their studies. The contestants participated in five rounds of assessment, which included a quick-fire quiz, an energy investment challenge and speed dating-style interviews. The students were judged by panelists from ConocoPhilips, ITF Energy and Schlumberger.
The winner, Lalit Bhamare, is a student of oil and gas engineering at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen.
"The aim of the Energy Apprentice was to give students the opportunity to practice skills and experience situations and questions similar to those in a graduate assessment centre or interview situation. The level of talent we saw during the event was hugely promising and it is important that we continue to foster this potential," said SPE Aberdeen Chairman Anthony Onukwu.
The competition was sponsored by Maersk Oil and Schlumberger.
