We have projects going on all over the Upper Midwest and Southeast regions. The positions are based out of a designated office location but, most of the time, you report directly to a project site if you are a civil engineering or survey intern.

In the summer, it is not unusual to work 8-10+ hour days at the peak of the construction season. Much of the work is outside, so you will be subject to varying weather conditions. Interns typically work May-August, but may continue throughout the school year on a part-time basis.

Student interns are paid a competitive hourly rate plus time and a half above 40 hours in a week.

Don’t wait! Interested students must apply via our website. Résumés dropped off, mailed, emailed, or faxed will not be accepted. We typically begin collecting résumés during fall career fairs and begin the screening process in mid-November until all positions are filled. Candidates must apply online and we will contact you by email if you are selected for a screening interview.
