Graduate development programme draws interest

Youth & Careers

THE Oil Search Graduate Development Programme continues to develop passionate young Papua New Guineans who are ready to meet global industry standards and inspire others.
The University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) and the Papua New Guinea University of Technology (Unitech) career expos provided opportunities for organisations like Oil Search to engage with students on their graduate and scholarship programmes.
Oil Search representatives drew much interest from students and staff wanting to know more about the criteria and eligibility of the graduate development programme.
Oil Search Foundation assistant accountant Marjorie Kirewo and reliability engineer Goshen Kili expos spoke to the students about their experiences in the company’s graduate development programme.
Kirewo encouraged students at UPNG to set clear goals, ask questions when uncertain, be willing to take on new tasks and be prepared to go that extra mile.
Kirewo said it was important to be confident in applying for a graduate development programme as it would enhance their chances for success. Kili told the students to take the opportunity presented to know more about the programme, the process and its eligibility criteria.
“You have to meet the criteria by scoring a GPA of 3.0 or above, provide a proper CV and a cover letter clearly stating your interest.
“Last year, half the programme’s intakes were females.”
