ONS Young - the next game changers

This is how ONS invites high school students across the Stavanger region to the sub-event ONS Young: “It’s really quite obvious: tomorrow’s leaders are young people today. That’s why it’s vital for the entire industry to make sure the brightest minds choose a career in oil and gas. Because if you are wondering: Yes, there still is a future in energy.”

ExxonMobil is well aware of our responsibility to promote science, technology, engineering and math – especially in a time where our industry is struggling. The world will always need bright minds with scientific and entrepreneurial dispositions. This is why ExxonMobil is presenting, during the ONS Young event “Future Students’ Days”, our pan-European STEM-program (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) – “the Sci-Tech Challenge”, which we run together with JA Europe in ten countries annually.

Here, we will introduce three of our younger colleagues – a geologist, an economist and an engineer, who will talk about their journey as students and as young professionals in ExxonMobil. The ONS Young audience inhabits a world with an ever-increasing need for energy, and our goal is to inspire them to choose a career path, where they could both be part of discovering new energy sources as well as making pre-existing ones more environmentally friendly.

“The Sci-Tech Challenge has allowed ExxonMobil to raise awareness about careers within science, technology, engineering and mathematics – as well as increasing energy literacy in youth across Eurasia.” says Aksel Asp, Communications Director, ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Norway AS.
