An Assessed Internship is one way to get to know Shell from the inside and immerse yourself in our industry. It will also help you decide if your potential career choice is right for you. You’ll get to be part of a collaborative team, working on actual projects, selected to match your interests and abilities.
You’ll join a project team and work alongside Shell employees, all professionals in their fields. Their perspectives will contribute to your understanding of our business, and its demands and rewards.
You’ll participate in regular assessments throughout your internship to ensure you get the most from the experience. Both a supervisor and mentor will support you and provide constructive feedback on your performance.
What we look for:
You’ll be evaluated on your capacity for analysis, decision making and creating workable solutions, as well as your drive, enthusiasm, resilience and confidence.
Your performance throughout your internship will be evaluated by a number of people – your supervisor, mentor and business or trained Graduate Assessors. The type of assessment process will depend on whether you are an Assessed Penultimate Intern or a Non-Assessed Earlier Year Intern.
Assessed Penultimate Intern – Upon completion of the internship, students with less than 12 months from graduation will be evaluated for full-time employment.
Non-Assessed Earlier Year Intern – Upon completion of the internship, students with more than 12 months from graduation will be evaluated for a return internship.
As part of an Assessed Internship, you’ll have a formal mid-term review with your mentor and supervisor. For Penultimate Interns, at the end or your internship, you'll be asked to complete an online simulation exercise and written task as part of a final review.
A successful Assessed Internship could lead to a place on the Shell Graduate Programme.
