What our interns say

Interning for Thompson Construction Group was the best experience in preparing me for a full-time role in the company. The hands-on training helped me learn skills I now use every day. I was given responsibilities that made a direct impact on the job. I learned more about construction and my future career during my internships than I did in the classroom.

Jon Deutsch, Assistant Project Manager

A construction geared college education gives the opportunity to learn terminology and gain a general understanding of numerous items. However, it was during my internships where I was immersed in the field day-to-day operation where I put “faces to the names." Now working four years full-time, followed by two years interning, I still make some decisions based upon my experience learned as an intern. The days spent “in the weeds," has given me insight into the unique variables found on-site and I find that perspective aiding in decisions relating to schedule, cost, and overall management situations.

Michael Benko, Assistant Project Manager

From my first day as an intern, I was treated as a valuable member of the site team and not just an intern for the summer. I was given a mini-project to complete within the larger job and given a fair amount of freedom to make my own decisions. The challenges and opportunities I had during my internship helped shape my early career and instill confidence in my abilities. I do not doubt that without my internship or the team around me, I would not have been able to grow and succeed as well in my full-time position.
