Internship Program

If you’re serious about solidifying your career path—we’re committed to giving you the experience top employers are looking for. We pay our interns to learn and make an impact in our world. It’s the real deal.

Shipley Energy’s Summer Internship Program is geared for students who are interested in gaining real world experience with a growing, progressive, and innovative organization. Students are quickly oriented to the fast paced environment of a full service energy company and given project assignments that fully integrate them to the teams and departments they serve.

We believe Interns should make an impact—they are mentored, they work hard, and they are held accountable. And at the end of the day, our interns produce incredible work. In fact, more than 35% of our interns are now full-time employees!

The Program is a minimum of 10-weeks long beginning in mid-May and ending in early August. The program is open to undergraduate sophomores, juniors and seniors in all majors attending accredited four-year colleges/universities.

Please check in with us or keep an eye on this site, as we do occasionally offer internships during the school year as well…
