Graduation is all too rapidly approaching and so I am attending several careers talks this term from a variety of companies in order to find out more about what working for them could be like and how their grad scheme works. As a chemistry student, BP is a major recruiter and I was interested to find out more.
The event began with the usual introductory presentation on what BP does, followed by a panel discussion during which students could ask current employees questions about their career paths. After the main event, there was a networking session which I found incredibly useful – I spent most of it speaking to a very enthusiastic chemist about her experiences at BP and how I might be able to fit into the company.
Overall, a very informative and useful event and a company I’ll definitely consider applying for next year. Unfortunately they are not running the chemistry internship scheme this summer, but I plan to apply for their insight days instead to get more of an idea of the working environment and roles within chemistry.
