Would you like to get hands-on work experience, build a professional network and gain insight into the energy industry? Come join our summer internship programme! Our summer interns are students in their second year of their Bachelor’s studies, up to and including their first year of Master’s degree.



We offer our student challenging and relevant tasks. You will be given physical and virtual learning sessions focusing on network building, individual development and an understanding of the business we work in. Selected candidates will be given the opportunity to engage with some of the world’s foremost technical environments and learn about Equinor and the energy industry.

The application period for our 2020 summer internships in Norway and UK was from mid-November 2019 to mid-December. The application period for our US summer internships was from mid-August to mid-October.

Our summer internship recruitment process 


(Please see dates for each country above)
Complete the online application form and fill in your personal details. Attach relevant documents, for instance your CV, diplomas and recent transcripts. If you are in the process of completing a degree, please upload an official temporary transcript or other document describing subjects and grades completed to this point.

Please remember to have temporary transcripts verified by relevant educational institution before attaching it to your application. If you prefer, you can use your LinkedIn-profile for registration. 


(Continuously - after the online application is registered)
If you are moved to the next step, you will be asked to complete an online assessment which consist of numerical, logical, situational, and personality tests. The test should be completed no later than 48 hours after you receive the invitation. Estimated duration of tests: 70 minutes.


(Four days to complete after you receive the invitation)
If you are successful in your online assessment, you will be invited to a digital interview. It’s a self-recorded video interview that you can perform from your smartphone or computer from any location with a stable internet connection. You will be asked some questions, get some time to prepare your answer, and then given a time slot to record your response.

The recording can only be done once, so we advise you to use the preparation time well. The video interview can be completed at your convenience, but no later than four days after we have sent you the invitation. Estimated total duration of the interview: 25 minutes.


Depending on volumes and when the application is sent, this may take some time, however it is our ambition to send our offers to successful candidates as soon as we can. We also aim to inform the non-successful candidates without undue delay.

Following a mutually signed offer letter, non-Norwegian citizens will be subject to an immigration process to make sure they are eligible to work for Equinor in time for their summer internship. The immigration process can be time consuming and thus it is important to start the process as soon as possible and that the candidate provides the necessary/requested information to our immigration service provider as soon as possible.
