Hi - I'm looking to apply for an internship with Shell. I've done loads of research but does anyone have any experience of an internship with them? Was it difficult to get??? I reckon this would be really good for my graduate prospects.

Hi!
I applied for an internship with them but I was unfortunate to have fallen in the first stage..
I wish you the very best of luck!

Thanks for the good luck! Sorry to hear you didn't get through..
What do you mean - first step.. did you get to the interview? Also - did they give you any feedback?
It's pretty competitive I hear..

My application wasn't strong enough to compete with all the other applicants.. so no I didn't get an interview.. I received no feedback but I did have the option which I declined.

no luck so far and i've pretty much given up..
i've applied for around 10-15 and no-one wants to know!!!

looks like i'll have to go to the local job centre and try and find one there after i've finished uni!!!

hows yours going anyway?

Hi there I can offer a bit of advice to this situation.

One important question I have to ask is did you get any feedback at all from Shell???

If you did not i would recommend in future that you ask. If you get rejected ask for detailed explanation why!! This will help you out later on find out what to improve on and what qualities employers are after these days.
