For Ms Harloe, obtaining an internship with a leading oil and gas company while studying to be an engineer was the catalyst.
“It wasn’t until my final year thesis on a new offshore wind turbine foundation and obtaining an internship at Woodside that I realised I wanted to work in the energy industry.”
Best part about working in the industry
Ms Hackett says the “vastness and the diversity of the industry” has held her captive ever since she embarked on a career in oil and gas.
“The best days have been those moments when the impossible become possible, when that project ‘they’ say could never been done takes form or when a team binds in such a way that it is a special experience with a special result,” Ms Hackett says.
