Shawmut Design and Construction

Estimating Intern

May - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I loved working with the people in the field. They made feel comfortable and one of their team members really quick!

What I wish was different

I wish that I had been in the field for the entire summer as opposed to just my last two weeks of the internship.

Advice

Speak up about what you want to get out of an internship. If the company is not meeting your expectations, tell them that.

Construction Project Management Intern

June - September 2019 • Providence, RI

What I liked

I was an onsite project management intern on the RWU SECCM labs project in Bristol, RI. Through this I gained relevant work experience in line with my major as well as had access to a project that once complete will benefit the RWU community as a whole. Being on site not only was I exposed to the role and work of a project manager but also as an on site project superintendent as well. This broadened my horizons even further than what the original scope of the internship was intended and allowed me many relevant learning experiences that I can look back on in the future.

What I wish was different

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is to be as involved as possible. Show your boss and the others you want to be there and involved. The more you show you want to be there to work and learn the more responsibility you will be given which allows you to gain more out of your experience than just being someones shadow.

Construction Project Management Intern

June - August 2019 • North Haven, CT

What I liked

The freedom to work on parts of the project I was interested in.

What I wish was different

I wish more there were more interns at the CT office or there were more opportunities to meet other people who worked there.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions. You have the freedom to take on as much or as little as you want so the experience is what you make of it.

What I wish was different

Business Development Intern

May - August 2018 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

There was lots of preparation involved in this internship—very hands on and the company definitely cares. Offered resume workshops and interview classes to help prepare us for a career with Shawmut or with other companies.

What I wish was different

I wish it could have been longer!

Advice

Interning in a new city is amazing. You get a taste for life somewhere new and are able to narrow down where you might want to live post graduation!
