Oil giant Saudi Aramco has announced that Huda Al-Ghoson has been appointed general manager of the company’s Training and Career Development.
Al-Ghoson was previously director of the Human Resources Policy and Planning Department and has been an employee of Saudi Aramco since 1981.
In a recent exclusive interview with Oil & Gas Middle East Al-Ghosan talked extensively about what the hydrocarbons giant looks for in its employees and gave advice about achieving success.
“To succeed in a competitive world, young professionals need to establish order and discipline at the beginning of their career to help them focus on items of substance and raise their own and their management confidence in their abilities,” Al-Ghosan said.
“They should take the time to develop their technical knowledge and understand the business of their organizations. They need to pursue continuous self-development and be willing to venture in new territories.”
“They should take the time to observe before acting, and not to be discouraged or disheartened by setbacks and failures. They should find a way to learn from past mistakes, and stick through the tough learning period. Sometimes the best teachers are the negative experiences,” she added.
