I have always believed that engineering is an art and a moral philosophy which is
meant for the upliftment of people. Therefore my dream is to work as an engineer
who solves the regular technical challenges that affect the common man in his own
way. Working in and as part of a team gives further impetus to this objective. I am
always been made to believe to be dedicated in whatever I do.
During the Shell Recruitment Day you will have a technical interview in which you will
be asked questions about a project that you have done which demonstrate your
technical skills. The assessors will be looking at your approach to solve the technical
challenges, your thoughts on the implications of your work and also your ability to
communicate technical information to an audience from a range of technical

In advance of this interview, we would like you to prepare by describing one or two
specific projects that you have done which you believe demonstrate your technical
skills. You can use projects from University, work placements, internships or even
specific research projects that you believe are relevant to the job for which you are
applying. Try to choose projects that are recent, significant and relevant to the area
that you are interested in applying to. Assessors will use the information you provide
as the basis for their discussion with you and therefore you need to be prepared to
provide further information about these projects. Alternatively, if you have not
worked on any relevant technical projects you may wish to describe a body of
research about a topic area that you believe is relevant to the job for which you are

The technical interview will last approximately 30 - 45 minutes.

Remember, when preparing this information:

• Write about two projects, which you feel, are the best.

• Be brief – simplifying complex technical information is a key skill for Shell

employees and therefore we would like you to limit your description of each
project to 150 words. Also, think about how you explain the technical
information to individuals who do not know anything about your specialist

• Select projects that you believe clearly demonstrate your technical


• Use recent projects (within last 3 years) – you will need to be able to
discuss these projects in some depth.

• Think about your own personal contribution – it is common to discuss

projects in terms of ‘we did’ and ‘the team did’, however, we are interested
in what ‘you’ did.
• Review your preparation carefully to ensure the information you have
provided is clear to others who were not working with you during your

The following questions will help the flow of your project description.
• What was the background to the project?
• What was your specific objective?
• What were the key things that you did?
• Challenges that you faced?
• Who did you work with on this project?
• What were the results?
