In Pakistan MOL is the first company which has given the opportunity to female trainee engineers to work in E&P field areas as well. The main reason for choosing MOL because they gave me a lot of practical exposure.

Gagea Daniela – Romania (2011 – 2012)

Global Sales Center Analyst - MOL Group

I have always wanted to work in a dynamic and multinational environment, in one of the top industries in the world. Growww was the perfect choice for me!

During the Growww program I had the chance to actively get involved in the Retail and Marketing Department. I started with small tasks performed under the supervision and assistance of the assigned mentor and after a couple of months I was capable to manage complex tasks by myself. What I loved most was the fact that every colleague was open for enquiries and I was always encouraged to challenge and to find alternative paths to current problems. All in all, I had the chance to learn from top managers, to improve and test my abilities to the maximum but, most important, to be aware of the local oil and gas market, while always having an eye on the international activities of the group.

I warmly recommend the program to all new graduates for all the opportunities it brings and for all the skills and knowledge one can develop.
