Operations & Maintenance Technician Trainee hiring campaign

ExxonMobil Guyana would like to inform participants scheduled to take testing on April 4th, 6th or 7th in Georgetown for the Operations & Maintenance Technician Trainee hiring campaign that the testing has been postponed due to COVID-19. Guidance to help control the spread of COVID-19 calls for social distancing, which includes the avoidance of large gatherings. Given that the health and safety of our employees and our community is our top priority, ExxonMobil Guyana management has decided to postpone the testing. We will be closely monitoring the evolution of COVID-19 and will re-assess the timing of the testing later this year. We will provide updates as soon as we can.

No further action is required from you at this time.
