Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Petroleum engineers are highly skilled, specialist engineers who focus on designing and developing safe and cost-effective gas and oil extraction techniques. As part of their job, petroleum engineers also conduct tests and surveys to assess the production of different wells and oversee the installation, operation, and maintenance of all oil field equipment.
A bachelor's degree in engineering is the minimum requirement for anyone wishing to pursue a career as a petroleum engineer. While many employers will consider candidates with a bachelor's in chemical or mechanical engineering, preference would always be given to an applicant with a bachelor's degree in petroleum engineering. Strong analytical, problem solving, and mechanical skills are essential attributes for this role. Thorough knowledge of safety procedures and protocol related to oil and gas exploration is critical.
At your interview, the prospective employer will want to know why you think you are the best candidate for the job. What are your strengths that make this the ideal job for you? Do you have any weaknesses that could compromise your efficiency on the job? Are you doing anything to overcome it? Are you aware of the dangers inherent in oil and gas exploration? Do you adhere to the standard security measures or you do think they are not really necessary? Want to see some more questions that interviewers typically ask at petroleum engineer interviews.
