TOTAL First Experience



[BLANK_AUDIO] [MUSIC] After finishing my masters in human resources, I decided I'd like to go abroad for a while. I'd always dreamed of discovering Africa or South America. So, I, as a European I could apply for a VIE. And of all the companies that offer this, Total was definitely the most attractive. Very international! So, I applied on their careers website. For my final internship, after my studies, I also decided to apply for Total. In no time at all, I had the phone call from my future boss, had an interview and the following week I was an operating intern at the Port Arthur Refinery. They offered for me to go for two years in Pointe-Noire in Congo. When I got there, I learned everything that comes with a first job: deadlines, emergencies, organization. From, from the very first day, I felt at home in my service. Just I don't know. LIke a link in the chain. But I wasn't here just as an observer. I really had responsibilities. I was involved in the operations. As the months went by, I knew that Total was the company for me. Before my time was up, I started having a bit of a look on the carriers websites for other opportunities, and that was great because it enabled me to meet. A lot of people at Total.and this worked out because I ended up being offered a job as an HR software specialist. Well, Total hadn't promised to keep me after my internship. Frankly, whatever happened, I knew I had made the right choice. I started to build the a good network, and I knew this would be a great experience, and reference on my cv.
