Internships: How to Land One & Gain Real-World Experience

Internships were once a “nice to have.” Now, they are a way to earn college credits, meet graduation requirements and increase a student’s chance of employment – in their field of study – after commencement day.

Bush Construction’s internship program offers students the ability to experience what it’s like working as a project engineer to learning what it takes to market a commercial general construction company and everything in-between. We’ve sat down with Jake Said, Jacob Conley, and Andrew Ottavianelli and talked about what it’s like to intern at Bush Construction. You’ll learn why they were drawn to the program, what they’ve learned, and advice they’d like to share with their peers.
