Nathan is working with our Estimating Team out of our Operations Center, helping pull together various bids and estimates!

“Over my almost two months at Wohlsen, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a slew of projects with ranging responsibilities. I provided support with takeoffs and subcontractor solicitation and was also responsible for divisions on several bids. So far, I have learned a lot about estimating and the construction industry while working with the estimating team. Working at Wohlsen has taught me about construction and related careers for sure. It has also helped me decide what I want to do and showed me an example of an employer I would want to work for. So far, this has been an invaluable experience that will surely guide my career path.”

“This summer has provided incredible field experience I could have never anticipated. I’ve been working on the site of Oakwood Hills in Mechanicsburg, PA. This internship has introduced me to a handful of role models who have entrusted me with several essential tasks. Equally as important, I’ve seen the different leadership styles and “soft skills” that these men have developed, and I have been integrating these into an idea of the leader I am striving to become. The continual learning experience of this internship has helped me confidently choose to continue down this path of construction management.”

 

Alexandra, Project Engineer Intern

Alexandra is providing project engineer services for the Sunrise of Fairfield project in Connecticut!

“This summer I had the opportunity to work on the Sunrise of Fairfield job site and was fortunate to have the opportunity to make positive contributions daily. I have a much greater understanding of the responsibilities of a PE and the intricate construction process that could not be taught in school. Everyone that I had the opportunity to speak with, both from Wohlsen and our subcontractors, had very encouraging words and advice. Wohlsen has not only met, but exceeded, my expectations with this internship program. I want to personally thank the entire Connecticut team for their amazing support and daily encouragement throughout this internship.”

“Interning with Wohlsen this summer has been an incredible experience. While working on the LCB Residence at Selleck’s Woods in Darien, CT, I’ve been introduced and have learned so much about the construction management field. Through thorough quality control, constant interaction with subcontractors, and a plethora of other activities, I’ve become acquainted with working effectively from both in the trailer and in the field. I want to thank the team for helping my knowledge and experience in the construction world to blossom and for being a joy to work with this summer.”

 

Anton, Estimating Intern

“My internship this summer at Wohlsen has been a very remarkable experience. I’ve been lucky to be part of the intelligent and dynamic estimating department, and I greatly appreciate all of their support. Every hour of the past 6 weeks was a learning experience. I have strengthened and increased my knowledge exponentially in construction estimating. I’ve had the opportunity to participate in numerous trainings, pre-bid meetings, and multiple quantities takeoffs. Before coming to Wohlsen, I was debating between construction and structural engineering as a career, but now I realize that construction is for me. I look forward to being part of the Wohlsen team in the future.”

 

James, Marketing Intern

James is working with our Marketing and Business Development team on a variety of brand development and client relations projects!

“Working for Wohlsen this summer has been a huge blessing, as I have gotten numerous experiences that will be helpful in any business situation. Working in the Marketing Department has been challenging with fast-paced days of racing to get a proposal out the door, or slower days filled with writing press releases and designing marketing materials.  I am so thankful for the opportunity and have been continually encouraged by Wohlsen’s efforts for making interns feel like a part of the company.”

 

Kasey, Project Engineer Intern

Kasey is working with our team out on the Home2 Suites site in Lancaster, PA to finish up this project!

“My experience with Wohlsen so far has been eye-opening. I’ve learned so much so fast working on the Home2 Suites project, like how my civil engineering studies can be applied directly to on-site construction. Working with multiple teams of professionals who are eager to pass on knowledge makes the job encouraging, and being exposed to the construction field has positively influenced my career path significantly. I’m looking forward to finishing up the Home2 Suites project, as well as learning and enjoying the remainder of my internship experience.”

Nathan, Field Engineer Intern

Nathan is working with our Self-Perform Concrete Team, working with the team both on and off the field!

“My internship has been a unique experience to say the least! I have found a corner of Wohlsen not many get to see. Working for the concrete division of Wohlsen is the best place I could have interned; I have worked on more jobs than I can count. My time is spent preparing purchase orders, assisting in job start-up checklists, ordering concrete and rebar, and much more. I have also been placed out in the field to understand what I am doing in the office more clearly. I know now that the construction industry is for me, and I hope to continue working for Wohlsen in the future.”

“My time at Wohlsen as an estimating intern has been an incredible learning experience so far. Working with the estimators has helped me understand the job and the importance of what they do.

I have been responsible for many tasks here such as doing quantity takeoffs, communicating with subcontractors, and gathering proposals. This experience has given me a better understanding of the bidding process and how a project moves from ideas on a page to a finished product. I am very thankful for the support I have received from everyone at Wohlsen, and I look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.”

“This student housing project was the first project I worked on with the Estimating Department two summers ago during my first internship with Wohlsen. I’ve been involved with the project through the many phases of estimation, procurement, and now construction. This summer, as a project engineer intern, I’m finding it to be a truly unique experience to be on site, learning all about the project engineer responsibilities. My wonderful teammates have been helping me develop the skills necessary to be a part of the project team. I especially enjoy walking the jobsite, documenting our progress in photos and speaking with the subcontractors about what they accomplished this week and what they will be working on next week. I look forward to watching the project progress over the course of the summer and am very excited to once again be a part of the Wohlsen team.”

As my internship continues, my goal of becoming a project manager continues to be grow. I’m very happy to share my last summer internship with Wohlsen Construction.
