Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development

Student Worker Intern

June - July 2020 • New Orleans, LA

What I liked

I liked how I got on-field experience by going on-site to projects. I also made connections while working there which was a plus.

What I wish was different

I wish there were more projects that were going on while I was there because due to ovid, many projects were not started over the summer. Also, I spent a good amount of time sitting behind a desk and doing nothing.

Advice

My advice is to pursue what you want to learn from an experience and do not be afraid to ask questions or go to a project site to gain experience. Also, always leave a good impression on people so one day they may help you later on.

Human Resources Student Intern

May 2019 • Baton Rouge, LA

What I liked

They are quick in the application process. They prefer to hire based on student interns referrals of other students at LSU or major university.

What I wish was different

There are a lot of security accesses needed to do a lot of work in the database (in Human Resources at least) so it’s difficult to find work I have the clearance for
