Communications Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Columbia, SC
“I liked learning about new software programs, like Adobe Photoshop to edit photo negatives. I also enjoyed traveling with the communications team to film various road construction projects going on throughout the state of South Carolina. ”

Assistant Geodectic Technician

May 2017 - August 2017 Aiken, SC
“The internship provided experience in several areas regarding civil engineering. I liked the fact I wasn’t doing the same thing all summer; but instead getting a taste of several different fields, which helped me narrow down what I want to concentrate on after I graduate. I also really liked the people I worked with, they were all really helpful and courteous.”
