TOTAL Diversity of Professions



[MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] I have been working for two years in Indonesia for Total access to Solar program. The objective is very simple, we help fragile populations to have access to electric light and communication means, radio or mobile phone. So me I'm involved in one of Total's better known activity, drilling. It sounds simple but it's a very technical work and involves many different roles reservoir engineer, petroleum architect, logistic manager and, and many others. And Total is really up to date. For example, using very high pressure drilling technologies. To be honest, I never imagined that one day I would work in that field. Before, I was in a sales manager role and I was very happy with my job. When this project was launched, my career manager told me that he was looking for someone who knows very well the country, and was ready to travel back and forth. So, I thought about it for one day and then I said yes. So for me what convinced me were the constant challenges and reactivity. I have to anticipate and avoid risk for both people for the environment. You know, you have to be able to take a snap decision and to resist stress. And the important thing, I mean the solution I think is to, to, enjoy moving around. To be of any use, you have to go to where the petrol is. You know, I have no idea where I will be in three years and it's. So exciting. It's really motivating. I was up for accepting the challenge. And why not you?
