ConocoPhillips Turns to UCM for Top Interns, Employees


Interning with ConocoPhillips took Jamie Randall into the Canadian skyline and provided her with valuable experience.

Jamie Randall, an Occupational Safety and Health major, and Cullen Rosine, an Industrial Hygiene graduate student, were two of four UCM students selected by ConocoPhillips for summer internships that provided more than they imagined.

"UCM is one of the top schools ConocoPhillips recruits from," says Stephen de Albuquerque, Corporate Manager of Health and Safety Assurance for ConocoPhillips. "The Safety Science programs rank right up there with Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Montana Tech. The UCM program is special. The students are top-notch."

Rosine spent his internship with ConocoPhillips in Texas and was offered a full-time position as a safety health environment and regulatory specialist.

"At ConocoPhillips you are treated as a full-time employee," Rosine says. "You get hands-on experience in a wide variety of topics helping you gain knowledge on key health, safety and environmental issues."

During Randall's internship, she traveled to Canada to visit the company's biggest project in the Canadian oil sands. "I loved it; it gave me a real sense of what I want to do in the future," says Randall.

De Albuquerque and ConocoPhillips representatives attend UCM's career fairs to recruit interns and new hires. UCM students selected are critical assets for ConocoPhillips.

By engaging in hands-on experience through their internships with ConocoPhillips, UCM students are learning to a greater degree.
