Transportation design intern

May - August 2018 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

My coworkers are great and help me to learn new design skills daily. I became proficient in roundabout design and was able to observe a new type of roundabout called turboroundabouts that will soon be introduced to the United States. I was able to meet coworkers in Arcadis from the Netherlands who have designed and implemented many turboroundabouts overseas.

What I wish was different

It’s a bit too sedentary and I would like to get away from my computer sometimes.

Advice

Be prepared for a lot of desk work but know that you need to do the grunt work early in your career to advance later on.
