I think that 100k job is a FG job. I will advise u to tread softly. All that glitters is not gold. I have done it before we can talk if u want more for my experience

Dear Poster
I clearly understand the dilemma you are faced with presently. My candid advice (I am a contract staff in an IOC too) is, stick with your current job as long as there is the opportunity for growth in terms of career path & finance. Trust me, you do not want to face the uncertainty associated with life as a contract staff in d IOC's whether shell, Mobil, Total et al.

No matter how much career progession he makes in one company.. it will never be same in terms of financial remunerations with Shell involved

I choose to disagree with your advice

Lol...!!!!! Once you experience the Nigerian demons in d IOC's, you will revoke this advice bro. As long as its N200K/month, its not a good contract(talking from experience)

The Nigeria demons in the IOCs are Nigerians (blacks not whites). The Nigerians are the ones killing the IOCs.

This is an interesting issue even though am just seeing it about 4 years after it was posted.

I work in an Oil firm and I know the intricacies of contract jobs,they are insecure and uncertain,the so called 4 years contract may not last up to that because what they would offer you is a 1 YEAR contract, renewable every year for "tentatively" 4 years. So if the job they got that made them employ you, is completed within 2 years,my dear,your job is finished.

And for those saying SHELL would open doors for her on her CV,think again,this may be a 3rd party contract arrangement, meaning,she may not be hired as a SHELL contract employee, her employment letter may carry the 3rd labor contractors name like "KASSIM AROWOSHAFE NIGERIA LIMITED".... take your time to research how employment in Oil and Gas has been bastardized in Nigeria.

So if I were you OP,I would stay put where I am,trust me,4 years would fly past very fast and you would regret leaving a secured job for a short term one.

Take the new shell job. If you are a business man/woman, you will strategise before the contract elapse, (start up a business aside) while pursuing a new job, that is, if they didn't retain u

From my humble perspective, 4 years in Shell even with 100k not to even talk of 200+ is worth it. The brand SHELL will open a lot of doors for you after the 4 years.
hehehehheehehehehehhehe. Na so you think..??

This email address is not for serious people who want to work for serious organizations like Shell; some HR will throw your application away when they see it and take you to be a total Greenhorn who still have time to joke around.
Thanks
