Interns you will be a full time student studying at an accredited US university and start in May working with us for a 12 week program.  You will need to be highly self-driven to seek out projects to showcase your capability.  Our most talented interns will get access to graduate opportunities before we go to the market.  Do well as an intern and you will go to the front of the line to receive a job offer. What a great way to start you career!

Graduates you will be joining a global cohort of like-minded graduates who will work on real business problems.  As a permanent employee you will start on our global Graduate Program where you will get unprecedented access to senior leaders to mentor and guide your course work.   One of the key objectives of our program is to ensure graduates build the skills and capabilities they need now to become BHP leaders in the future. To do that, we’ve aligned what they’ll learn on the graduate program with the broader leadership capabilities we teach our BHP leaders.  The graduate program is based on three key learning principles: it’s leader-led; embedded at work; and focused on business solutions. The program is global, meaning that no matter where graduates work at BHP, they’ll be developing the same skills and capabilities as their peers. There’s also a local context where graduates can apply what they’ve learned in their own work environments.

Trinidad & Tobago Interns Each year Trinidad & Tobago Petroleum hire between 6-12 Summer Interns which is designed to provide 2nd or 3rd year full-time undergraduate university students with work/project experience in an actual working environment. This program is hosted on an annual basis as part our commitment to local content with an emphasis on student development in the chosen fields of study.
