Undergraduate internships

Gain hands-on experience that complements your studies

Who is eligible?

We offer a variety of internships, typically for three months, in some of the countries where we operate. Placements, which vary by location, are likely to be available if you are in the third year of a 4-year technical degree studying:

  • A science or engineering-related subject
  • Engineering
  • Geology or Geoscience
  • Supply chain management
  • An information Technology related subject
  • A Health Safety or Environmental Discipline.

How will I benefit?

An internship with Baker Hughes will enable you to:

  • Earn while you learn – all internships are paid positions
  • Receive individual assessment and feedback
  • Experience the culture and values of a prestigious global company
  • Benefit from personal mentoring and coaching
  • Improve your technical skills and enhance your CV
  • Build your own professional network
  • Be considered for a permanent position after you graduate.

We're looking for talent, so if you can prove your capabilities, you will have the opportunity for a conditional job offer at the end of the internship. That means you could be going back to complete your degree with your career path already mapped out.

What is Baker Hughes looking for?

You should only apply if you are prepared to work hard and perform to the best of your abilities. Every role will require you to display technical knowledge and solve technical problems, showing you have initiative and self-motivation. You will also need the ability to persist when activities are difficult, finish assigned tasks on time, and perform within stringent health and safety guidelines.

We expect every intern to have strong interpersonal and communication skills, showing integrity by being open, respectful, honest and direct. You will need to build collaborative relationships, share information with colleagues and fellow team members, work collaboratively under pressure, and actively participate in your team – sometimes taking on a leadership role within the group.

What will I do?

While the exact nature of your work will depend on your location and the part of the business you join, we want to give you the best possible chance to explore different areas of interest while demonstrating your capabilities. That means you will be able to put your studies to practical use by doing meaningful work on real and challenging projects.

One of our Core Values is Learning, so you will also participate in a formal training program that includes hands-on workplace activities, classroom and computer-based courses, and master-classes hosted by experts.

All interns work on important projects, with clear expectations, which require some technical ability. Typical projects will be associated with ongoing activities in the part of the business you join. You will work individually or in small teams on technically challenging, mentally stimulating projects, with support from your line manager and colleagues.
