Every day I combine my engineering problem-solving skills with leadership moments.

Beverly Suffern

Float Equipment Production Group Leader

With a passion for math and science, Beverly Suffern knew she wanted to pursue an engineering degree in college, but wasn’t sure how to put it to use after graduation. She learned about Halliburton’s Supply Chain Rotational Program and thought it would expose her to all aspects of working at an international oil field services organization. Three years later, she’s worked in England for six months, attended a global strategy conference, participated in numerous trainings, and puts her leadership skills to use every day as a frontline supervisor.
How did you first learn about Halliburton?

I’m from Louisiana, so I’ve grown up knowing Halliburton as a key player in the oil and gas industry. When I was exploring potential employers in college, I heard about the Supply Chain Rotational Program and was intrigued. At the time, I wasn’t sure what to do with my engineering degree, and I thought this was a great way to explore different career paths.

Can you tell me more about the rotational program?

It’s a leadership development program which consists of five six-month rotations in different roles in various business lines, doing everything from project management to frontline leadership. There’s an emphasis on personal development, so I’ve attended trainings, both technical and leadership-based, on topics including presentation skills, finance and budgeting, and business writing. I’ve had a ton of opportunities to combine my engineering problem-solving skills with leadership moments. I’ve also been able to travel through the program; I worked throughout Texas and I spent six months in England, which is just one of 80 countries where there are international opportunities. When I lived in England, I worked on a global standardization project with other employees in Dubai, Singapore, and the U.S.

What was your favorite rotation?

Living in England was an unforgettable experience, but I would say my favorite rotation was working with the Completion Tools business line in Carrollton, Texas, where I led a team of 30 employees. The team averaged over 15 years of experience, so their knowledge and passion was so motivating and inspiring. That’s the thing about Halliburton – every one I work with is very personally motivated.

What surprised you most when you started at Halliburton?

How safety-focused we are! I heard the industry was safety-conscious, but starting at Halliburton, I quickly realized that every meeting begins with a safety moment and security is at the forefront of everything we do. If you feel something is unsafe, you’re expected to stop work.

Do you have any advice for students who want to work at Halliburton?

Make sure you’re involved in other activities outside of your courses. You’re not going to know everything from a technical perspective, and you’re not expected to. But you are expected to work well with people, learn from them, and effectively communicate. Those soft skills are critical to your success.
