Farewell and Thank You To Our Summer Interns!

As our last few interns have returned to school, we wanted to take this opportunity to recap the experience and thank them for their hard work. We wish you a successful school year and hope to see you again!

This summer, we welcomed our largest intern class into the Aldridge family for a 12+ week internship program. These 25 interns, from across the country, joined us to work alongside our project teams to gain experience in Construction Management, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Accounting, Marketing, Safety, and Talent Management.

Interns are fully ingrained into what it means to be an Aldridge employee. They kick off their summer with an onboarding program that introduces our safety program, important company information, a job site visit, and our overall company culture.

While some of the interns were based out of our Libertyville, IL headquarters for their position, we also sent many of them on the road to one of our many satellite offices or traveling to various job sites across the country. Some of the places visited included: Southern California; West Virginia; Denver, Colorado; Miami, Florida; Washington D.C.; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Arlington, Virginia; Livermore, California; and Athens, Ohio. Seeing a variety of major infrastructure work, on sites across the country, has always been a highlight for the intern’s program experience.

Here is what they had to say about their summer:

“The Aldridge Internship Program does a great job at giving interns the tools at making a smooth transition from a college student to an Aldridge employee.”

“I honestly believe this internship program is one of the best. From onboarding, great mentors, [executive] presentations, summer check-ins, and the Cubs game, this is one of the best!”

“The company exceeded my expectations and I love the atmosphere of its people!”

For almost 30 years we have welcomed intern classes to join us for the summer. This year, we are excited to say that a few of our 2019 interns have already accepted full-time positions at Aldridge.
