Inventor Modeler Intern

June 2022 - August 2022 Mendota Heights, MN
“This past summer I worked as an Inventor Modeler Intern. I did not know what exactly to expect walking in on the first day, other than it would be 3D modeling extensive, and soon enough I was pleasantly surprised. Throughout the first day orientation I felt relaxed, informed, and ready to get down to business; everyone was super nice and informative, coming over and introducing themselves. It already felt like a healthy working environment that I could perform to the best of my ability in. Throughout the next few weeks, I underwent an extensive training using their in-house software, Inventor, and reading 2D AutoCad drawings. By the end of it, I felt extremely confident that I had been given the tools to accomplish some significant achievements throughout the rest of my internship. From then on, I always looked forward to coming into work and banging away at the project I was assigned to on 200 Park, and any questions I had along the way were readily answered. Even if I had not liked the work, the environment and people alone would have sufficed for a great summer. From weekly sand volleyball games and a summer wine party to a company sponsored work trip to a British pub, it was evident that PNA invested a lot of time and effort into making it an enjoyable workplace.”

Structural Engineering Intern

May 2022 - August 2022 Mendota Heights, MN
“This was the best internship experience I've had by far. I immediately felt welcomed by the team and was provided with a great training program that taught me a lot about curtainwall design. Throughout my internship, I was able to work independently on current projects, which provided great insight as to how a full-time career would be at PNA. Even as an intern, you feel as if you are a member of the team while contributing to very cool projects. The level of work was challenging at times, but the structural team was happy to answer any questions I had with a thorough explanation on the topic. They all genuinely want to help you understand important concepts rather than simply giving you an answer, which will be very beneficial for your future studies and career. One thing that really set this experience apart from others was the mentorship program that has been developed for the interns. From my first day, I was assigned a mentor that not only helped to answer any technical questions I had, but also made sure that I was able to work on tasks that I showed interest in. We set aside time to have regular check-ins to give and receive feedback, discuss how my experience was going and any goals I had, and to just build better relationships between coworkers. Having an assigned mentor really helped to create a welcoming and collaborative environment, and helped ensure I was getting what I wanted out of my internship. Overall, this internship had everything I was looking for. I learned about so many new topics and expanded my knowledge on topics I had already learned, I was able to work on a wide variety of tasks for interesting projects, and I had a lot of fun along the way. For anyone that is considering, I would definitely recommend this internship. ”
