The Guardian: See Shell

Many students try to makes themselves more attractive to employers by gaining work experience as well as a good degree. But oil giant Shell claims to offer two programmes that go beyond the average work placement.

In its Gourami Business Challenge, teams of undergraduates battle to develop a five-year business plan which will be presented to senior Shell leaders. The game, says Shell, allows students to gain first-hand knowledge about the energy business, test their management potential and develop valuable skills along the way. At the end of the challenge, successful students are invited to a Shell recruitment day when the Gourami performance will contribute to the overall evaluation.

With the Shell Personal Development Award, students are offered funding towards initiatives like volunteering on a community project or planning an expedition.
