ENGINEERING STUDENTS PREPARED FOR JOB SEARCH

AN Aberdeen oil and gas recruitment specialist has won high praise from two key academic bodies for helping to educate the next generation of engineers.

Sarah Hutcheon, branch manager of Morson International’s Aberdeen operation, recently addressed graduates from Robert Gordon University and students at Adam Smith College in Glenrothes.

The interactive talk featured tips on CV presentation, a breakdown of industry jargon as well as an insight into how the recruitment process works in the competitive energy industry.

Will Ritchie, careers consultant team leader at Robert Gordon University, noted the event organised by the University’s student chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers reinforced many of the key messages delivered by the careers centre with regard to employability, job search and effective applications.

“Sarah’s talk has undoubtedly helped to enhance the students’ understanding of the job market which can be quite daunting for graduates,” he said.

“Having that vital extra edge in terms of CV presentation or refined interview skills and techniques can set a candidate apart from several rivals.

“Sarah thoroughly explained what the major recruiters are looking for and the best ways for the graduates to sell themselves which will certainly stand them in good stead now and in the future.”

Bill Hutchison, curriculum head of petroleum engineering lecturer at Adam Smith College, believes the students now have a much better understanding of what it takes for them to stand out from the crowd.

“There’s little doubt our students will benefit greatly from the advice Sarah was kind enough to pass on to them,” he said.

“Morson International is an established oil and gas recruiter worldwide so understanding what they want to see from candidates in terms of the recruitment process will help to set our students apart from the rest of the other job seekers.”
