EES is proud to present Distinguished Speaker and MSU Alumnus Cody McDonald of  Shell.

"Working in the Oil & Gas Industry: What I Wanted to Know as a Student"

McDonald will focus on the following questions:

  • What do Geoscientist actually do in the oil industry?
  • What is it like working for a supermajor?
  • What are the pros/cons when considering working for the industry?
  • How do you get a job in the O&G industry?

As a geologist and recruiter these are the questions that I get asked the most from students. My talk will aim to shed light on what it is like to work as a geoscientist in the Oil and Gas industry as a recent(ish) graduate.

Come get the inside scoop on prepping for a job in the oil and gas industry from a seasoned pro. The presentation is Friday, November 22, 2019 at 12:30 PM in Room 204, Natural Science Building on the East Lansing Campus.
