The best aspects of my BP internship were: exposure to the working conditions on the North Slope, background on the oil and gas industry, mentoring from successful professionals, support from my project team, and the opportunity to work in the beautiful state of Alaska.
Working with and getting to know all of the very talented interns was difficult knowing not everyone would be getting a job offer.
