Deadline for Energy Trading Internships?
It seems like a lot of the guys on this board are really knowledgable about energy trading so I would really appreciate your help.
I go to a target (top 10) school and I want to get an internship in an energy trading role for the next summer. Ideally, I would want to work at a physical shop (oil majors, power generation) as I feel like a good understanding in the fundamentals would serve me better further down the line. At my school almost all internship recruiting is done during the spring when all the BBs and trading firms come to campus. However, what is the protocol for the oil majors (BP, Exxon etc)? A lot of the utilities and power generation companies (NRG, Duke) which I know have trading desks, don't really advertise for trading related internships. Is it worth contacting them about such a position?
Very few people from my school end up in energy trading and I have very few contacts there. If anyone could help me out with the process it would be great? Really appreciate it.
