Internships & New Graduates


QEP Resources provides important summer internship opportunities for students in a variety of disciplines and recruits students who are smart, motivated and eager to contribute.

Our interns receive a real project that has a direct impact on our business and gives them hands-on experience in their field of study. All of our interns are assigned mentors and managers that coach and assist them through the duration of their projects. At the end of the summer, interns present their projects and findings to company leaders.

Our survey data revealed that 100% of our 2014 interns, if given the opportunity, would choose to work at QEP. Here is a sampling of what they had to say:

  • “I worked with a very supportive mentor and supervisor. The other department members made me feel very welcome. The HR team did a great job with training opportunities, especially the presentation training.”
  • “I was given a very meaningful, interesting, and engaging project to work on. My co-workers were friendly and helpful.”
  • “I enjoyed learning so much and getting to know everyone in the department. It’s been a great learning experience as I was able to do real work.”
  • “I would tell other students they would be lucky to secure an internship at QEP.”

We believe that a QEP internship provides a strong foundation for a future career in the oil and gas industry – consider exploring your career options with us!
