    A few years prior to launching his career with ExxonMobil, Craig was involved in a hunting accident resulting in partial paralysis. “I was worried about limited job opportunities after graduation given my injury, but ExxonMobil offered me a career,” says Craig. “What I value the most about ExxonMobil are the high quality people.”


ExxonMobil’s global policies promote diversity and inclusion and prohibit any form of discrimination or harassment in any company workplace, anywhere around the world. These broad policies encompass all forms of discrimination.
