There are several opportunities for students who want to learn the inner workings of a natural gas company, on both the engineering side and the business side. Engineering interns work in the reservoir, drilling, completions, production and non-operating departments, while business interns are exposed to human resources, credit, enterprise risk control, audit, accounting, and more. All interns participate in several educational and networking activities, including lunches with the CEO and executive team, health and wellness sessions, and instructional programs on how to manage personal finances after college. They are also invited to bond as a class during several social activities, such as bowling outings and a scavenger hunt. Upon completion of the internship, about 70 percent of the intern class is offered positions within the company, either another internship or full-time employment.
