2009 CH2M HILL, Energy & Chemicals for Alaska Summer Internship

CH2M HILL, Energy & Chemicals for Alaska is now accepting applications for college interns for the summer of 2009.


Each year CH2MHILL recruits highly motivated engineering, business and computer science students from the University of Alaska, Anchorage and Fairbanks campuses.

In addition to direct recruiting we partner with the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP) to find sophomores, juniors and seniors pursuing degrees in engineering or related fields. CH2MHILL also supports the ANSEP Bridging Program with interns.

The interns are given a chance to go on field trips to places such as the CH2MHILL Kenai Field Office, ConocoPhillips Gas to Liquid Plant in Nikiski and Marathon Oil Gas Field in Kenai. Interns participate in weekly meetings, interact with clients and learn all the aspects of the business world. Often it is the first opportunity for students to complete timesheets, expense reports and collaborate with professionals within their field of internship.


CH2MHILL interns will be able to take with them the knowledge of working with various clients such as BP, ConocoPhillips, Alyeska. The interns experience varies depending on their discipline they will be working with: they maybe checking drawings, calculating manpower projects, providing AutoCad support, writing reports or working at our FAB Shop.

As part of the program all interns are assigned a mentor and together they agree on what each of them wish to receive from the process. The progress toward these expectations is tracked using weekly and monthly reports listing accomplishments and areas needing improvement. At the end of the summer interns go through an exit interview and discuss their experience. This information is used to tailor the program to provide the best possible experience for everyone involved.
