Transportation Engineering Intern

June 2019 • San Luis Obispo, CA

What I liked

I had fantastic coworkers that mentored me throughout the whole summer and provided support in all aspects of my job. I learned how to utilize transportation software and how to effectively communicate with clients. I did real meaningful work and contributed significantly to projects.

I wish I had more opportunities to go out in the field for site visits.

Advice

Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand the work you’re doing. Get to know your coworkers and attend work events - it’ll make the atmosphere of your office much more inviting. Don’t be afraid to speak up if you feel like something is wrong or you are not enjoying the work you’re doing.
