Shell Internship Program

Shell’s Assessed Internships consist of well defined projects with clear objectives and deliverables that will allow you to work with a number of interesting and stimulating colleagues on projects that have a real business impact. You will gain valuable experience and skills to equip you for your future working career.

Program Objectives

Our internships are carefully framed to allow you to benefit from regular performance evaluation and feedback throughout your time with us. We believe that looking at past and present behavior is a useful tool in understanding and predicting an individual’s future performance. Taking part in a Shell Internship is a way for you to discover what Shell has to offer as an employer, and for us to see if you have what it takes to become a part of Shell. You will benefit from regular performance reviews that will enable you to enhance your strengths, while continuously building upon your development areas. Shell’s Internships are designed to help you:

  • Put into practice theories and concepts learned in the classroom
  • Discover the strengths and development areas of your work-related skills, through constructive feedback, evaluation and supervision
  • Improve general business competencies, including communication, team-building, organizational, problem solving and analytical skills
  • Gain exposure to the energy industry and related issues
  • Build valuable networks for future career options
  • Discover potential job areas, fields of specialization or areas of future study

Following a successful internship, you could be offered a place on our Graduate Program.

What we look for:

You should be an actively enrolled student who will complete at least one more semester of education following your internship.

You must be legally entitled to work in Canada by way of Canadian Citizenship, Permanent Residency, or a valid work permit which would allow you to work for Shell.
