    I worked at Petrofac full-time (More than 3 years)


    The Best Part Of First Job Immediately After Your Graduation Will be Your Innocent Ignorance of the Fact that Your Seemingly Simple Ideas Have the Power to Change the Company's Future. I Have Been Blessed to have had Opportunity to Embrace that Feeling by Having the Best Of Opportunities a Person Can Get to Explore the World Of Engineering and a Corporate Atmosphere by Working With the Most Of the Disciplines here at Petrofac. Experience is the Best Thing Ever that Can Happen to Person. You have to Win Only Once in the Whole Life. Growth Stops the Moment you have the Feel Of Winning and It's a Short term Feeling. But Playing the Game is more Important, the Whole Experience is Really Important.

    This is Where I Was Taught Real Definition Of Engineering and What it Takes to be a Real Engineer in Life. So the Definition that I Learnt here is that Engineering is Utilizing Knowledge and Principles to Design, Build, Analyze, Question the Basics, Not Assuming, Learning and Solving Problems and Real Engineers don't Adjust Instead they Learn, Analyze, Solve Problems and Grow up.

    This is the Place that Encouraged me to Always Feel Intrigued and Learn Something New Everyday. The One that I Value the Most Above Everything is that this Place Laid a Foundation to Develop One Of My Most Favorite Skillset in a Person. It's this Situation Awareness. This is the One Skillset Which I Always Wanted to Develop From My Quality Of being a Resourceful Person.


    Work Life Balance is Little Off

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Petrofac (Mumbai) in May 2019.


    It was a very friendly interview. They started with basic HR questions. Then they asked me about my internships, then they asked me about my favourite subject. And the complete technical interview was based on my internships and favourite subject.
    They also ask about what you know about petrofac.
