Some testimonies of Portuguese Engineers who were recruited in the previous European Job Days edition in Lisbon (October 2012):

"When I visited the European Job Days last year I could never expect to be where I am now. The opportunities were many, as well the foreign companies, especially from Norway and Denmark, countries where I was looking for an opportunity to develop my career. But all changed when I realized that NOV was looking for engineers for a new office in Lisbon. I changed the course of ideas and embraced this huge opportunity of working in NOV! The European Job Days along with NOV have plenty of new challenges for passionate engineers, and I was just in the right place at the right time!"

"In October 2012, when I visited the European Job Days, I could not imagine that this would change my life in a very positive way. In NOV stand I found a good receptivity. They schedule an interview for the next day. This interview ran in such a way that now I’m part of the team of Design Engineers in the BOP Handling Department.

"I first came in contact with NOV at the European Job Days, Oct. 2012. During the aforementioned event, the people responsible for representing NOV have always shown to be open and caring in the questions they asked me, as well as to the questions that I posed. Ever since I started working at NOV, that same open and caring demeanor is very evident and ingrained in the company’s work culture. I have had the pleasure to work with amazing people that prize a fantastic work environment and help each other surmount any challenges they might face. It has been a privilege to be among the first group of people to start the company’s new office in Lisbon; this is a very interesting and exciting career opportunity."
