    Company: Shell

    Years in current company: 7 years

I enjoy working with the team to bring the plant back to production mode whenever we are faced with a plant upset. However, expect to work hard and stay focused."

    Nitin Kalsekar

    Within Operations

    Operations Leader

    Company: Celanese

    Years in current company: 19 years

    "I’ve made the right choice by taking a process technician job over a white collar job. When the company expanded its wings in China, I was chosen to be the key operations support. From there, I went twice to US for training and design of new plants and was relocated to China for three years. Coming from a foreign country, I realised that talent and hard work leads to recognition when working in Singapore."

    Shift Manager

    Company: Oiltanking

    Years in current company: 13 years

    "Over the past 13 years, I am glad to be given opportunities in chemical processing to grow my career despite possessing only an “O” level education. I’m now earning a comfortable income to support my family with three children. This industry provides alternative career change for people who might not possess the required education qualifications to be an engineer. However, we can be a specialist in our own area as long as we are committed to excel in what we do."
