Chastain values our interns and what they bring to our team. Internships in college are much more than resume-boosters. Our program exposes students to the practical application of their studies, adding a deeper, more nuanced layer to their education. Our interns are exposed to everything from land surveying to in the office design engineering tasks to out in the field construction observation work. Along with job-specific skills, interns at Chastain gain soft skills, which translate well to virtually any field. Plus, working with others and getting familiar with life after graduation will bolster confidence and help students feel prepared to enter the professional realm.
Our program also serves as the most direct route to employment after college. Through our program, our team establishes relationships with our interns, and most of them return during winter break, spring break, and year after year until graduation. Chastain offers the majority of our interns full-time positions after graduation. This one-on-one relationship-building program with our team provides not only a behind-the-scenes look into civil engineering but also builds relationships because, at Chastain, we believe teamwork matters.
