Encana's EXPLORE program is a comprehensive summer internship program designed to provide a foundation of technical knowledge and experiential training while giving students the opportunity to apply school learnings in a real-world setting.
Interns don't sit in a classroom all day, or spend their summer doing mindless tasks. They are assigned value-added projects intended to provide beneficial learning opportunities while delivering meaningful contributions to Encana.
Because the EXPLORE program is a comprehensive, all-encompassing experience, interns also participate in educational, charitable and social activities, such as industry Lunch & Learns, field trips to rig sites, a community service project and a variety of fun social events.
