Haliburton, Inc. Oil and Gas Corporate Finance Internship

Applications due end of October. Application is on Handshake.

Haliburton, Inc. In Houston, TX

Internship in corporate finance in the oil and gas industry. Very competitive pay. The internship is in Houston, TX.

The internship is posted on Handshake at Career Services:

• Internship overview: Halliburton typically hires 10-12 summer interns each year, with the goal of extending at least 3 full-time offers at the end of summer depending upon business conditions. Many of the internships are accounting focused, but we have done more finance focused internships in recent years. We attempted to write the job description to cover both.

• Ideal candidates are rising seniors (Dec ’19 or May ’20 graduates) or students going into a 5th year for an accounting/finance master’s program. We would also consider strong candidates that are graduating in May 2019, they would do a summer internship with the possibility of a full time offer starting in the fall.

• We are seeking the best and brightest. Experience or coursework in corporate finance or business analytics is very helpful, in addition to strong modeling skills. We also emphasize softer skills like communication and leadership potential.

• Of course we want candidates that are willing to relocate to Houston for full-time opportunities, and ideally with an interest in the energy industry. Halliburton is a Fortune 100 multinational with operations in over 70 countries. We have 1,500+ people in our global finance organization, so there are many opportunities for people that display potential and the right skill set.

Some additional information:

Would accept senior for summer with job offer possible after end of summer. Would also consider a rising junior.

Deadline is end of October.

Look on Handshake for the complete description and contact for more information. If you still have questions after looking on Handshake and reaching out to the contact there, I can provide you with an additional contact. You can email me at

Job Treasury operations, corporate finance operations, credit analysis. Some corporate finance rotations.

Haliburton is interested in people who will come to Houston and would be willing to relocate there if offered a job. Lots of potential international travel (with the full-time job, not so much the internship!).

Position Title: Financial Institution Specialist (Trainee)

Locations: Approximately 150 positions to be filled annually at multiple locations (see reverse side for the locations being filled under this announcement)

 Duration:  Three to four-year training program leading to professional certification

 Compensation: Starting salaries range from $53,290 to $72,755 per annum, depending on location, with regular salary increases and an excellent vacation and benefits package.

Position Description:  This is an entry-level trainee position with the FDIC, one of the nation's premier bank regulatory agencies. Financial Institution Specialist (FIS) positions are located at 85 FDIC office locations throughout the U.S. Successful applicants are placed in a 3-4 year training program leading to professional certification as a commissioned Financial Institution Examiner or Resolutions and Receivership Specialist.  The program includes both formal classroom and on-the-job training, and every participant is assigned an individual coach or mentor. Participants receive regular grade and pay increases during the program as they complete established training benchmarks.

FISs typically work in teams and often must travel extensively to conduct on-site exams or close failed banks.  They assess financial institutions to determine whether the institutions are following safe and sound banking practices, maintaining effective internal controls and procedures, managing their institutions effectively, and complying with all applicable laws and regulations, including those relating to consumer protection, privacy, community reinvestment, and fair lending. They also participate in activities related to the closing and sale of failing financial institutions and the management of the ensuing receivership, including the management and disposition of failed bank assets.
