Arcadis IBI Group

Project Designer

January 2016 - August 2018 • Westerville, OH

What I liked

I truly loved this internship, which is why I continued with it for almost 2 years. The people here at this company are very welcoming and want to see you succeed. They gave me tasks that were challenging, but appropriate for my given skill level. The best part about this internship is that I was able to gain valuable knowledge in many aspects of the engineering field, including but not limited to: creating cost estimates, designing water/wastewater systems and treatment plants, report writing, permitting, funding, taking part in site visits, and being able to complete projects from start to finish. This internship is very much involved, but this aspect is why it was so enjoyable.

What I wish was different


I highly recommend looking for internships that are very much involved, like IBI Group. Even though the job is challenging, what you take away is so much more valuable than doing an internship that is just walking through the motions. (Been there done that). To determine if a job is involved or not, as questions during the interview! Do not be afraid to ask questions about the job itself and the tasks you will be doing.
