Moyer, Michael D.

Creating a senior individualized project that proved to be stimulating and challenging, I wrote a background paper on alternative energy sources for Gulf Oil Corporation. The topic, the research, and the writing allowed me to meet a variety of goals while serving an internship at Gulf's Corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from January 10 to March 20, 1979. I rewardingly met my SIP objectives as I found a project that utilized my writing skills and exposed me to the dynamics of the corporation and the energy industry. I managed to work with and learn something about an issue of enormous importance to the energy industry and the nation, an issue whose outcomes will do much to shape the future that I and my college class will be so much a part of. I produced something of value to me and to Gulf. For the next two years, the corporation will use my paper as source material for speeches, and as an internal "background" paper for informative purposes.
