Water/Wastewater Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Green Bay, WI

What I liked

The variety of projects I was able to work on was great. Each project was something new and challenged me in a different way. It exposed me to many facets of environmental engineering and the people I worked with were extremely helpful.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been able to get out of the office to see more field work.

Advice

Never be afraid to reach out for advice/help when you hit a wall.

Municipal Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Menomonie, WI

What I liked

I loved the family-like community that they had. I also loved that they kept me very busy every day. I was able to work an average of 45 hours a week. The amount of work I was given made me feel like I was contributing to the team in a meaningful way. I gained a lot of experience in the field of work which I will be going into after graduation. Lots of useful hands-on experience.

What I wish was different

There is not much that I would change. If anything, I would have liked to have gotten a little more experience with drawing in AutoCAD Civil 3D. I did get a little experience with it, however a little more would've been nice.

Advice

I would advise anyone who's starting an internship to be humble, take pride in your work, and have fun. Employers are doing students a favor in giving them internships, go into with an attitude eager to learn. Take advice from those around you and ask lots of questions. Take pride in what you do. While much of the work may not be difficult or even seem worthwhile, take pride in it and give it 100%. Co-workers notice this. I received many compliments and good reviews from co-workers (even some I rarely saw) because they noticed that whatever I did, I took pride in and was eager to do a good job. Another way of doing this is asking questions. If you don't know how to do something, ask. If you are curious about different aspects of your job, politely ask someone if they could explain it to you. Questions don't go unnoticed. Be humble, take pride in what you do, and have fun.
