MME Students Take a Trip to Houston for the Get66 Program

The MME program recently took a trip to Houston, TX to participate in the Get66 Program, which is a career-readiness and networking event sponsored by Phillips 66. During this three-day trip, the students visited the new Phillips 66 Headquarters in the Energy Corridor of Houston. There they toured the facility, participated in an interactive trading simulation called Crude Pursuit, and were introduced to the Katalyst Program, which is the Phillip 66 on-boarding program for new graduate hires.

Students were also invited to Koch Industries for an overview of their supply and trading operations. At Koch, the students heard presentations from market analysts, supply and logistic coordinators, risk managers and traders. The visit with Koch gave everyone a great insight to one of the largest corporations in America, which was unique and informative for students that are deciding on the next step of their careers.

The trip was also full of career readiness presentations and events. The students were put through a series of mock interviews to sharpen their resume and interview skills. Each night the students participated in a networking event to meet people around the energy industry. Overall, it was a great way to jump start the Fall recruiting season and prepare students to begin actively thinking about their desired career paths.
