Construction Management Intern

May - August 2021 • Jacksonville, NC

What I liked

The project I was assigned to, being that it was a maintenance hangar for the Navy. I also enjoyed the teamwork and knowledge I gained from other coworkers.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have gone out into the field more than I did.

Preconstruction Engineer Co-op

May - August 2020 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I loved just about everything. I loved the environment, my peers, my boss, the job, the work, how much they believed in me and had me in charge of things, etc. It was a great experience for my last co-op

What I wish was different

I wish this building, and everything and everyone in it, would be moved closer to home. It is a long drive to Cleveland but I loved everything about this experience so much, I am moving to DC anyways.

Advice

Don't be afraid to travel. I have had 3 previous co-ops, all somewhat local (longest was an hour commute), but I never really knew what was available to me until I took a leap of faith and took a co-op almost 7 hours away.

Project Intern

May 2020 • Santa Monica, CA

What I liked

I interned for the Water Division during the summer of 2020. I liked that my program allowed me to split my time between both the Santa Monica Water Treatment Plant & the Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant. It offered me an experience to learn different aspects during the Pre-Construction process for both of these Progressive-Design-Build projects.

What I wish was different

I know Walsh is a proactive company in their community and among their employees. Unfortunately, COVID-19 limited a lot of social interactions.

Advice

Set learning goals for yourself. Journal or log the progress of your experience - they are a great reference in the future.

Project Engineer Intern

They kept me busy, and valued my contributions to the end goals of the project

What I wish was different

More interaction with co-workers relating to the job. Meeting were infrequent and random.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, its all a part of the learning process. As an intern/co-op, they don't expect you to be an expert, so you just have to put forth your best effort and enjoy the work.
