Energy, Education, and the Youngins

Hi Paige and Mark,

I work for the AAPL accredited undergraduate Energy Management Program at Western Colorado University. I began listening to your podcast when I took this position, and it has helped me drastically in regards to my understanding of the industry. In order to help get more youth into the industry, I have to know what’s going on- and this is my go-to podcast.

You’ve consistently mentioned the need for individuals to get out, talk to their neighbors, their families, the mailman etc, in order to help others understand our industry- and I agree this is unbelievably important. As someone who recruits high school seniors into our Energy Management Program, I’m finding the concept of O&G difficult to connect with the younger generation on. We have several partners in the industry to support scholarships, internships, job placements, and quite frankly, not enough graduates to supply to them. We neeeeed the younger generation coming into this industry, and to that point, what advice would you give to recruiters to get more kids pursuing careers in our industry?

Thanks for all you do!
-Veronica

New to the industry

Hello Mark and Paige!

I am about to graduate from Colorado School of Mines. You say this is a podcast for busy oil and gas professionals, but I am constantly recommending to students and others looking to get into the industry! I appreciate what y’all do.

I did a 7 month CO-OP with ExxonMobil last year doing machinery engineering and I loved it, but now due to the current state of the company, there probably will not be any opportunities for me there. I am now very weary to go into a company that is primarily oil/gas based, rather I am more considering a company like Flowserve which is very active in the oil and gas industry but has a more diversified base. What are y’all’s advice for young individuals trying to join the industry?

123-123t f r ,

Great find

Was looking to learn a little more about what was going on with energy and oil around the world! This was very educational! Thank you, can’t wait to tune in next time!

What do you two think the gas prices will reach by the end of the year?
