Environmental Intern - South Central - Summer 2022
Are you interested in a hands-on real-world learning experience directly related to the skills needed in a full-time construction career? In this internship, you will have the opportunity to develop, participate and learn key roles and functions within construction management.
Our mission is to make a difference and we offer opportunities for you to make one too through our construction operations. Whether we’re boring tunnels through mountains, turning rivers into energy or building bridges that connect communities, we depend on our passionate, skilled, and safety-obsessed construction professionals to get it done right. You bring your big ideas, commitment to top quality, and an unwavering work ethic. In return, we offer huge career and travel opportunities and the satisfaction of building the next big thing from the ground up. There’s a reason Kiewit attracts the best: we offer fast-paced excitement and fulfillment you won’t find anywhere else.
Kiewit's South Central District is one of Kiewit's leading infrastructure districts specializing in heavy civil, transportation, and water resource markets. Projects you could be working on could include mass grading, drainage, paving, utility and more. Most of our work is regionally based in the south-central region of the United States throughout the entire state of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Colorado, and Louisiana. However, we also work on various joint venture projects across the United States. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about infrastructure and committed to the construction industry as opposed to design.
Kiewit's South Central District has a home office in Fort Worth, Texas but leads work all over Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Colorado, and Louisiana. However, one of the many things that makes Kiewit's culture unique is that we go where the work is, which exposes your career to abundant opportunities. We relocate our teams based on the work that is available, combined with the development plans, skill sets and career goals of each team member. This means your Kiewit adventure is custom-designed to meet our shared needs. Job assignment location will be determined closer to your start date.
