The Horizons New Graduate program offered the perfect opportunity for me to develop my career aspirations. The program provides both functional and leadership training at Chevron’s training facility in Houston by subject matter experts in all disciplines.
As a completions engineer, I have taken courses from completions fundamentals and hydraulic fracturing to building leadership skills. The expansive list of courses has helped me sharpen my skills as I continue to develop my career as a professional engineer. Mentorship is another important facet of the Horizons Program. I was paired with a senior completions engineer who was able to provide me with insight and support.
Finally Horizons provides the opportunity to rotate between three positions in five years. Within the Drilling & Completions program, rotations range from operating in a different asset to a positional change. These rotations will help me develop an understanding of all the core areas of my discipline and broaden my areas of expertise. Collectively, these three aspects develop a strong foundation for me as I transition from an engineer-in-training to a valued professional.
