LEARN MORE ABOUT ANA
“I am from Argentina, so I previously work in Buenos Aires at SAP. The role I had at SAP was a back-office role as Revenue Expert. This job wasn’t fulfilling enough but I didn´t know who to change my career path. That is when, I decided to come to Madrid and pursue my MBA at IE.”
“I have joined BP in January 2020 to take part of the company’s Challenge Programme. I am based in Madrid, Spain and the position currently have is Pricing Analyst.
The Challenge Programme is the best professional opportunity I had ever had. It is a program inside BP that can last between 3 to 5 years where you do between 2 and 3 rotations through different areas. This program is designed to give you exposure to multiple disciplines and develop you for future success at BP.“
HOW DID THIS JOB FIT INTO YOUR CAREER STRATEGY?
“For me, it was life changing and thanks to it, I made a huge change in my career path. I didn’t only change location and company but also industry and job type.”
HOW DID YOU FOUND THIS OPPORTUNITY?
“I found about this opportunity through the Career Portal.“
HOW DID TALENT&CAREERS HELP YOU?
“After I applied, the T&C department contacted me because there was a company presentation at IE about this program. I attended and was able to get the HR’s LinkedIn contact.
When I started with the interviews, I talked to my advisor Raquel Rolo Gonzalez. She helped me throughout the whole process, from sending me information about how to prepare for my competency-based interview, to scheduling me a mock interview with ilovetobe to prepare for my technical interview.”
ANA'S RECRUITING PROCCESS
After I applied through the portal I got and email to make an online test about numerical and logical reasoning. The second step was a telephone competency-based interview with someone from London. Only after this, you start talking with Spain’s HR department. I went to the offices where I had a technical interview with 3 people. This interview was the hardest one. They tell you about a hypothetical situation and you have to tell them what you would do, the challenges, the advantages and so on. Finally, the last interview is a group activity and an individual presentation in front of a board of 9 people.
The world is changing fast and our industry is changing with it. The energy mix is shifting towards lower carbon sources, driven by technological advances and growing environmental concerns. In BP, we will help drive this transition – and our business will be transformed by it. We are continually looking for talented, committed and ambitious people to help us shape the face of energy for the future.
