What can I expect to do at CRC during a summer internship?

CRC interns often share the same job responsibilities as full-time employees. We are looking for Petroleum, Mechanical, Petrochemical, and Electrical Engineering; Geophysics and Geology; Land Management; and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) students who want "hands-on" experience. Interns are given real work with real challenges. As an intern, you'll be part of a team assembled to deliver on-time results while working with other CRC employees.

Can I still be an intern if I don't have the specific degrees mentioned?

Yes. Please check our list of available intern positions for an opportunity in your field of study.

Will I work in different groups, or focus on one specific area?

We want you to become very involved with your project, so we assign you to a specific group for the entire summer. It's the best way to give you an opportunity to make a real contribution. However, there will be plenty of opportunities to work closely with other groups and departments when providing support from your job function.

How long do internships last?

A minimum of 10 to 12 weeks – enough time to dive into a project and make a real contribution. Generally, internships are available during the summer.

Internships at CRC sound exciting and a little daunting. How can I be successful?

At CRC, we will give you every opportunity to succeed by pairing you with a mentor - a colleague in your group who can show you the ropes and answer your questions. As you gain confidence and develop your skills, you'll be given more responsibility. Your mentor is responsible for challenging you and preventing you from becoming overwhelmed.

Will CRC take care of getting me to the job site and pay for my housing?

Interns may be eligible for relocation assistance depending on the distance from your school to your new CRC work location. In addition, either a lump-sum stipend or fully furnished housing option may be provided to interns who qualify for relocation assistance.

Will I get paid?

Yes! Our salaries are competitive within the industry for internship positions.
