1.
There are a lot of red tape and regulations in energy related projects. Are you accustomed to waiting on logistics and policy during your projects?
Assure the interviewer that you have the fortitude to outlast any policy restrictions that may hold your projects back. Discuss the ways that you are accustomed to changes in regulations and policy mid-project.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I understand that the energy industry is privy to many policy changes and I am accustomed to setbacks coming my way. I have also experienced setbacks from early-stage funding falling through. Over the years I have gained a lot of patience when it comes to the advancements of my projects and can step away from a project that may be falling behind, look at the situation critically, and reassess my approach when needed."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am no stranger to policy changes. I am well aware that setbacks happen during projects, regardless of the industry. Changes and setbacks can be disheartening at times but it all balances out when I am able to enjoy the success of a well done project."
2.
The energy sector often sees changes in regulation and policy. How do you keep up to date on changes in our industry?
Show the interviewer that you are genuinely interested in the energy sector by staying up to date on industry news and changes. Perhaps you regularly read a publication that was of great interest. Maybe you follow a certain energy blogger or news channel? Ensure that your answer is enthusiastic and, if you use Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd. as an information resource, be sure to mention that as well.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"To stay up to date on industry changes, I read the Breaking Energy publication on a daily basis. Also, I follow a blog on remediation law. I am very interested in the changes in the energy sector and find the regulatory news section on your website to be very resourceful as well."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have google alerts set up, using keywords related directly to my niche. These help me to stay on top of any industry or regulatory changes, and they save me the time of having to comb through countless publications to keep up. I also follow Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd. posts on sustainability and environmental concerns, on a regular basis."
3.
At Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants we seek to hire individuals with related post-secondary education. Walk me through your formal education.
Your post-secondary details will likely be on your resume; however, the interviewer would like for you to go into further detail. Discuss your degree, the areas where you excelled, and any awards or recognition you received.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have a Master's degree in Energy Systems Management from the University of San Francisco. I graduated with honors which is something that I am proud of."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"My Bachelor's degree is in Business Administration which is not directly related to what you do at Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd.. With that said, I did learn a lot about organizational development, behavior, and project management. These skills will certainly help me in this role."
4.
At Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants we put a lot of emphasis on attention to detail which some people mistake for micromanagement. How do you feel about this?
Many companies will closely control the details of each project. This close control can often be mistaken as micromanagement which not everyone enjoys. Assure the interviewer that you are comfortable working in a role where the details are valued.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I naturally pay close attention to details so to be asked about the finer details of a project is of no concern to me. I am happy to comply with any project checklists."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I work very well on an independent basis; however, it is nice to be checked in on every now and then! I don't mind having my work double checked or proofed."
5.
In which ways do you feel that Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants stands out from industry competitors?
It is essential that you research Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd., and the competitive space, before your interview. Discuss with the interviewer how you feel that they stand out from other energy-focused organizations. Keep your answer positive and to the point.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have researched Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd. as well as Company ABC and XYZ as I believe those to be the strongest competitors in this industry. One thing that stands out to me is that Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd. seems to put a stronger and more positive emphasis on environmental concerns. Your involvement with community concerns and innovative technology is also inspiring."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd. has been around a lot longer than many competitors, and your name is often mentioned in the news as well as other industry leading publications. I feel this sets you apart in your industry and sets you up as an industry expert and influencer."
