Career Profile: Regis

“Upon completing a master's degree in international purchasing at the Bordeaux Business School, I decided that my internship choice would be based on two factors: a multicultural environment and the level of maturity of the supply chain organization. I chose Schlumberger for those reasons, and during my internship, I realized the the company core values matched my own—a focus on people and dedication to customer service.

"During the six-month internship in the procurement team in Luanda, Angola, I was involved in sourcing projects, such as elaborating and implementing a strategy for vehicle management. I started with Schlumberger shortly after my internship and was given the challenge of setting up the procurement department in Soyo, one of our operations bases in Angola.

"The link between my internship and my first position was really the high level of responsibility you are given early on, which is an advantage for an ambitious graduate who is passionate about what he or she does.”
