Is your scholarship local or overseas? If you can afford to, break the bond and take the Shell offer. Your career prospects in Shell will be much better.

It really depends on what scholarship you had been offer. If it's a really prestigious one, I say go with the public sector route as you career path would have been planned for you and it will likely be smooth sailing. Dropping that and going to Shell will mean you start at the same starting point as everyone else i.e. all over again to fight it out.

Yes it depends on the kind of scholarship you are holding, whether you are an overseas or local stat board scholar.

If you are starting off as a G at Shell, it is comparable to being on a fast track scholarship in public service, but only for the first 3 years. After that, you are in a pool with all other Shell employees competing for job rotations and golden handshakes. But you do have an edge over your other G peers since you have a career headstart in an overseas plant, as a technologist I presume. Your career is from the start not limited to Singapore. If you work hard, you will get good recognition and progression internationally.

Whoa wait, are they basing you in the netherlands or are they just sending you there for training? It makes no sense unless you have completed your degree there and can communicate in fluent dutch or you have some unique expertise which sounds really ridiculous since I am assuming you are a fresh grad?

People in the Netherlands can converse in fluent english, so there's no need to worry about communication. It's true that they may not be too inclusive in their day to day conversation which is carried out in dutch, but english is the preferred medium of speech when it comes to work, especially with colleagues from different parts of the world.

Hello, it is an overseas scholarship. I guess you could say that I can afford the bond, although it is a hefty amount and I am not sure if breaking it for Shell would be worth it.

how confident are you of your own ability? if you are confident that you will definitely do well at work, I say break the bond and go for Shell. The limit/career prospect is much higher/better in Shell compared to in the civil service.

I work at Shell in a commercial role (used to be a grad) and have worked in Amsterdam and other offices. I highly recommend the company for an exciting and versatile career in O&G. An MNC offers decent pay (varies from 17 to 30 months in my experience), wide work experiences, overseas opportunities and top quality training. Don't pass it up for a government job! I foregoed a govt job and have never regretted it.

Hi, just a question. Is it true that commercial staff are generally paid better than their technical counterparts in the O&G industry
