Benesch formally welcomes 65 students for the firm’s summer 2022 internship program this week. For the past several weeks, students from schools across the country have been joining Benesch teams in advance of the eight-week summer program aimed at facilitating personal and professional growth.
Interns will be integrated into the company—working on projects, interfacing with leadership and adding to the culture. Using the skills they develop over the course of the program, the interns will conclude their experience by working together to create and present capstone projects related to Benesch’s current strategic initiatives.
While Benesch has been employing summer interns to assist with project work for decades, 2021 marked the first year of our company-wide program designed to elevate the intern experience. Since launching last summer, the program has nearly doubled in size, due in part to a large group of returning interns.
“Through the internship program last summer, I gained a lot of additional knowledge and skills that enhanced my time at Benesch. I’m looking forward to further advancing my skills this summer and connecting with interns across the company,” said Abby Winter, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln student in our Lincoln office.
The program will allow returning students to continue building on the skills they gained last summer while taking on new projects and making new connections.
“Benesch’s internship program allowed me to meet and connect with future engineers all around the country. The program provided a friendly work environment that challenged me to develop essential skills to progress as an engineer,” said Drew Woods, a University of Georgia student interning in our Augusta office for the second summer. “This summer, I look forward to connecting and engaging with new interns and having the opportunity to learn from experienced engineers.”
Joining Winter and Woods are 10 other returning interns and 53 new students. Follow Benesch on LinkedIn for continued updates on the program and related news.
