Your development

Most of the new engineers hired by ExxonMobil Production Company do not have a technical background in the oil and gas industry, therefore significant emphasis is placed on early training to quickly develop technical proficiencies and operational skills needed to have a successful career. Early career development and training is focused on providing meaningful experiences to facilitate the technical skill development in the initial job assignment.

During a new employee's early career, a great deal of the training will take place to begin developing an understanding of the operations they will be supporting. The cornerstone of this process is ExxonMobil's world-class training program. Formal training is typically conducted in a classroom environment with instructors and students from all parts of the company; required technical training courses and schedules are specifically tailored to job assignments to coincide with an individual's skill development. Another key aspect to overall development is nontechnical training, which focuses on increasing personal effectiveness, leadership and overall business impact.

In addition to formal training, meaningful work assignments from day one and on the job mentoring are utilized to reinforce skills and allow for the implementation of knowledge. As it is often beneficial for new employees to witness operations and field locations, it is anticipated that travel to producing fields will likely be more frequent early in a career.
