Trisyella Jothiraja recalls how her two-day assessment for joining Shell left her exhausted but elated. A year later, she happily reports that things are still as exciting as when she first started.
She said: “You don’t just learn about your role. You learn about teamwork, the people and the business. I’ve also learned a lot about myself – what I can do, areas for development, how resilient I am. My capacity has been unleashed.”
Trisyella studied at Monash University and spent seven months at the Copenhagen Business School in Denmark before returning to her home country for the final semester. Once she’d completed her degree she applied to join the Shell Graduate Programme.
“I was intrigued when I went for my first interview with Shell,” she said. “The culture in the office was very different to the culture outside; there were people from different walks of life and leaders from various countries. It’s really multi-national.
