Shell Industrial Roundtable Interviews

Hi everyone,

With the fall semester now getting started, we hope you’re getting fully settled in after having a great summer.  We’re busy making plans to be back on campus and wanted to take this opportunity to encourage you to start thinking about your next summer internship or a full-time position.  I sincerely hope that you’ll consider Shell in your search.   

Ideally, we’d like to have you submit your online application by September 6 at www.shell.us/careers.  This will allow us to expedite our review of candidates and be able to arrange for on campus interviews.  We will be filling our interview slots for the week of Industrial Roundtable from those candidates who have successfully completed their online application and e-assessment by September 7. (The e-assessment is the second step in the process and must also be completed to be eligible for interview consideration.  Please be sure to follow the directions and to give yourself enough time in a quiet space with a computer to focus on completing the e-assessment.)

If you don’t get an application in by September 6th, don’t worry. We’ll continue to take applications via our website after that date as well – just get it in as soon as you can. 

I, along with several other Shell representatives, will be on campus the week of September 15 for Industrial Roundtable.  We will be on campus and looking to speak with candidates at both of the following events:

Industrial Roundtable Seminars:
Monday, September 15th – Time TBA in Stewart Center (check the IR guide for time/room)
Learn about Shell careers and our interview process

Industrial Roundtable Fair:
Tuesday and Wednesday, September 16th – 17th from 9 am – 4 pm on Memorial Mall
Come meet some of our company representatives at the job fair

As always, please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or if you want to talk about career opportunities at Shell.

We look forward to seeing your application via www.shell.us/careers!
