A day for the ladies

we formed teams and had to find answers to questions about the exhibits. It got super competitive since there was a prize for the team that won! The museum was also super crowded with families, since it was a Saturday afternoon. It was cool to see an entire exhibit devoted to what the company does; most of the processes they had exhibits for, I was able to understand since I had been learning so much about drilling and oil this entire summer.

After we turned in our answers and hoped for the best, we were free to go and see the other exhibits in the museum. I was so psyched to see the dinosaur bones exhibit and the precious gemstones/diamonds exhibit.

At the end of the day, we all went to a dinner at Fernando’s (a Latin cuisine restaurant) and enjoyed a decadent four course meal. I sat at a table with a few other interns and recruiters, and had great conversation over yummy food! It was such a long day, but a great opportunity to bond with the recruiters and meet important women in the company.
