    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Whiting Petroleum in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Resumes were submitted via email to the head of Exploration and then a month of two later phone interviews were conducted. Mentors called potential interns and this phone call was the only interview in the interview process. Within a week, mentors made calls back to potential hires to offer a position. Questions were basic: do you have experience with X program, have you had well log analysis, how does your research relate to oil and gas, how will this internship help you reach your eventual career goal, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no majorly difficult questions. The hardest part for me was that projects, or even general outlines/areas were not established yet, so understanding what I would be doing during the summer was mostly non existent.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was through email. Hourly pay offered was said over the phone right after making the offer and was said to be non-negotiable.
