ConocoPhillips and its employees are part of the fabric of Alaska and its communities. We have more than 1,000 employees in Alaska, with nearly 90% calling Alaska home. Our families work and live here. As Alaskans, ConocoPhillips employees are invested in the state and committed to protecting the resources that make Alaska such a great place to live. We know a strong economy needs jobs – and ConocoPhillips business activities generate thousands of local job opportunities and continues to sponsor initiatives aimed at recruiting Alaskans for future employment.
ConocoPhillips recruits from a number of sources within the state. We regularly post job opportunities with the Alaska Job Center Network, as well as local newspapers and a variety of career placement sources. We participate in career fairs and work with the University of Alaska system to encourage interest in the oil and gas industry and the many career paths and potential job opportunities available at ConocoPhillips.
We support the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP), which focuses on increasing Native student university recruitment and retention in science and engineering programs. ConocoPhillips is a sponsor of the Alaska Process Industry Career Consortium (APICC), which provides initiatives designed to prepare Alaskans for careers in the oil and gas industry. APICC, ConocoPhillips and other industry participants have collaborated with the University of Alaska to create a process technology degree program at the Anchorage, Fairbanks and Kenai campuses. We continue to successfully recruit both interns and full-time employees from the process technology program.
ConocoPhillips also works closely with the village of Nuiqsut, on the North Slope near the Colville River Field, to provide opportunities for training and employment and encourages its contractors to join in this effort.
At ConocoPhillips, we take our responsibility to the next generation seriously, cultivating and supporting an educated and highly trained workforce. Because when it comes to finding tomorrow’s energy solutions, tomorrow begins today.
