Shell Internships

An Assessed Internship is one way to get to know Qatar Shell from the inside and immerse yourself in our industry. It will also help you decide which career is right for you.

An Assessed Internship is not an informal placement. It gives you full day-to-day involvement in actual projects, selected to match your interests and abilities.

You’ll join a project team and work alongside Qatar Shell employees, all professionals in their fields. Their perspectives will contribute to your understanding of our business, its demands and rewards.

A supervisor and mentor will support you directly. You will undertake regular assessments throughout your internship. This is to ensure you get the most from the experience and receive feedback on your performance.

What we look for at Qatar Shell

You’ll be evaluated on your capacity for analysis, decision making and creating workable solutions, as well as your drive and enthusiasm, resilience and confidence.

During an Assessed Internship, you’ll have a formal mid-term review with your mentor and supervisor. Following this, there will be a final review where you’ll be asked to complete an online simulation exercise and written task. You’ll also be asked to prepare a final presentation about your project.

Succeed in your assessed internship and you could be offered a place on Qatar Shell's Graduate Programme.
