Justin, Cost Controls Specialist
Background
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2007 with a BS in Economics and a minor in Business. I chose economics because it teaches efficiency which can be applied to everyday life and gives you a competitive advantage in the workplace.

I worked for three-and-a-half years in Iraq performing Project Controls activities for military contracts. I recently moved back to the States with the intention of expanding my experience to the energy industry. This opportunity came along and after doing much research, McDermott emerged as the perfect choice.

Highlights
I like the autonomy that McDermott offers. While there are many standards for performing business, every project is different and presents opportunity to set up, track and control it in a unique way. There is always support, without micro-management of every move. I have learned this through the VAALCO project, which has definitely been interesting and challenging in terms of set up and reporting that satisfy the contract and are consistent with McDermott standard procedures.

Advice
If you want to be in an environment that advances your skills and career, then McDermott is the perfect place.
