Environmental Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Aiken, SC

What I liked

A very unique summer internship. I got to learn all about nuclear sites and how things work. They had many interns of all different majors doing various things around the site. It is common to see both interns and full-timers working on things outside of their degree.

What I wish was different

Work was slow at many points, but I was able to find work to do by asking around and making my skills known to the full-time employees.

Advice

If anyone has the opportunity to visit SRNS, they should. It is a historic site, but still very important today. The work that is done there is very different than what I've experienced at other summer internships.

Safeguards and Securities Intern

August 2019 • Aiken, SC

What I liked

The culture of the company. Lots of cool history and a world-class safety/security program. The buy-in a cross the 11,000 site employees is very impressive

What I wish was different

I wish the work hours were different. Work started at 6-645 am, so it required waking up very early.

Advice

Just try something. Don't ever count yourself out or turn down an offer simply because it doesn't sound like something you'd be interested in. It can always lead to new opportunities!

Amazing benefits and pay

What I wish was different

Boring, slow, was not developing an actual skillset for long term careers
