Energy - Who gets hired?
Despite the prevalence of the sciences and technical degrees, there are a number of employees in the sector with less vocational, arts-based degrees. If you have a passion for the sector, display that to the interviewer. As there is great emphasis on performance in the recruitment process, you are able to show that you can compete with graduates from more traditionally suited degrees. Applicants for business function roles, such as accountants and business analysts, are not likely to be quizzed over their engineering and scientific knowledge. It is more important that they excel in their own disciplines, which is just as crucial to an energy employer as to an engineer.
