In my 4-year stint with Shell, I’ve travelled extensively to meet and engage with customers, balanced work and family, and absorbed a vast amount of new information like a sponge. Yes, it has all been challenging, but Shell has provided me a continuous learning environment where I am encouraged to maximize my potential. So far, my career development journey has been incredibly rewarding, I am motivated to accomplish more and ready to take on the next big challenge.
One of the main reasons why I chose to work at Shell after my MBA is that this is a large corporation that offers a great platform filled with opportunities for employees to develop personally and professionally. From sales to marketing, and from business development to policy and advocacy, Shell has always given me the space to pursue my career endeavours and personal aspirations of becoming a general manager and a passionate leader.
Looking back on the various job roles that I’ve taken, I now realise that one may fully demonstrate their potential and deliver great impact by not staying in the comfort zone, but by taking on and going beyond new challenges. If you have the drive, Shell will provide the stage for you to shine.
