Description: Are you a civil engineering or construction management student with a strong interest in geotechnical construction? Are you looking to further your education with intensive, real-world experience and mentorship? Do you like the idea of spending this summer outdoors, getting your hands dirty (literally) while you learn about what it takes to be a part of the Nicholson Team? Qualifications: Current enrollment in a Civil Engineering or Construction Management degree program is required. To be a successful intern, you should have strong communication skills, a desire to work hard, and the ability to interpret and apply technical information. A respect for safety on construction sites is essential. You should also be willing to travel, as much as 1-2 weeks at a time. Must be able to commute to the job site. Standard work hours will be 10 hours a day and will involve physical activity. You may be performing some heavy lifting (of 50 lbs or more). You may also be operating company vehicles, so a valid driver's license is required.
