What I liked
I thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed my time interning with Granite. I was able to work alongside several engineers, project managers, and estimators, knowing full well that I had the freedom to ask questions regardless of how straightforward the answers may have been. Throughout my internship, I was directly assigned tasks that I was expected to complete autonomously, which required significant due diligence and care. I worked on Structural & Earthwork Takeoffs, contacted subcontractors to answer their questions, attended weekly project meetings, and much more. Working on projects as they progressed through their various stages of completion was a truly formative educational experience.
I was also gracious for how welcoming, nice, and respectful the other engineers were towards me. They would always make sure that I was comfortable, and were especially accommodating throughout the uncertain summer months due to COVID. I was excited, and happy, to go to my internship every single day.
Interning with Granite was an unforgettable opportunity.
