Back to business, so which SIWES/Industrial Training applications will commence this year?
Usually, applications begin December and the exam is taken in January/February. For this application, I think we submitted online via their career’s page, although there are options for offline submission. Whether you studied an Engineering course (Electrical, Mechanical or Petroleum Engineering, Computer Engineering / Science etc) or Social Sciences (Business Administration, Accounting, etc) or other courses, you’re welcome to apply.
About NLNG SIWES test: Well, NLNG SIWES/Industrial Training aptitude test was way too simple. Infact, you can hardly fail one question. Maybe they will make it tougher after going through this article. On that day, I can remember we were told that payment was NGN20,000 and we were going to Bona Island in Port Harcourt, the test was administered in Presidential Hotel Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
About NLNG Undergraduate SIWES Candidate Selection: We still do not know how they selected their candidates. There are some documents you need to come with to the venue.
Applications for this can be done online throught their career portal or you can send applications through post office or courier services. Apart from this, if you are among the top 4 in your department (I believe faculty of Engineering), then you have 70% chance of interning at Schlumberger. This is because, they usually visit selected departments to handpick the name of best students for their SIWES/Industrial Training program. Applications is usually always on. You can visit their career page to submit your applications.
Payments: Relatively high (Around 60K)
About this, you are expected to submit some documents to an email, including your result! Their process is quite fuzzy. The best way to go about this is to submit application to the company with a staff’s recommendation. There is an option to submit online via their recruitment page. However, those who we knew that got it, got it through manual submission. We hope that their process will become transparent next year.
Chevron Oil company usually accepts I.T applications between October to December for their January to June internship. The 1st phase(January to June Industrial training) is less competitive and comparatively easy to get, however, their July to December SIWES looks like a tug of war. I believe you know why.
To submit applications, visit their official career page which is found in this article to start submitting applications.
Chevron SIWES Bursary / PAYMENT: Some people claim that they pay NGN30K. We haven’t confirmed this yet.
This Industrial training is in the Tech industry, they accept I.T students for 3 months or 6 months SIWES program. So you can undertake your 200L/300Level/400Level SIWES here. For more information about them, visit this page on 2018 Internship application for Gensys Tech Hub
OTHER Important Tips for SIWES / Industrial Training Application.
If you are an undergraduate seeking a placement for your SIWES program, you need to define what you want, do you need money and (or) experience or do you experience and (or) money? If you need money go to Information and Tech. firms, Oil servicing firms even start ups you will receive salary between (40K-80K) but if you want experience, you may be given 10K, 20K or NO PAYMENT. YOU PRAY FOR ITF.
Prepare your CV/RESUME for siwes application: Begin now to prepare your CV/Resume and note the key things companies are after when they look through your CV/Resume. Build one that can bring you up for interview. Though I am using CV/RESUME Interchangeably, let it be know to you that there is a difference between both of them. This we will explain in a later article.
Apply Early: Almost any reasonable company – multinational companies – Telecommunication, Banks, Oil companies etc all begin their applications about three months earlier before the actual program. So apply early do not wait until you have finished your examinations before you commence application.
Get your Academic Result Ready: Always demand your statement of result stating your cumulative cgpa. This is because most undergraduate SIWES application will demand it from you. For instance shell/spdc internship.
