Now Hiring – Civil/Environmental Engineering Intern
Juneau, AK

 

Do you want to be a productive, contributing member of an up-and-coming engineering firm in Alaska's capital city?

 

Are you interested in learning not only by instruction but through hands-on work in the field?

 

If so, apply to be proHNS's 2023 Civil/Environmental Engineering Intern.


Job Description:

If you’re looking for a cushy, coffee-fetching job this summer, this isn’t it. Our intern will work alongside our firm’s full-time employees to learn the ins and outs of land development, environmental conservation, infrastructure design, construction document preparation, stormwater management, water, and sewer utility design, sediment and erosion control, and traffic control. You will work not only with proHNS staff, but engineers, inspectors, and other representatives from our clients and partner firms. Your hands will get dirty, literally - our interns perform on-site concrete testing, stomp through construction sites to inspect contractor progress, and get down in the trenches to sample materials.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Current enrollment in Engineering, Construction Management, or Construction Technologies program.
  • Ability to work out of our Juneau, Alaska office. This position is not eligible for remote work.
  • Three professional or personal references required at time of interview.


Schedule:

  • Summer 2023, exact start and end dates are flexible.
  • A one-month minimum commitment is required.
  • Anticipate 40hrs/week, Monday - Friday.


Compensation:

  • Hourly wage rate is $20-$25 per hour.
  • Position is overtime eligible.
  • Monthly housing stipend – up to $1500/month.
  • Company vehicle provided for work and personal use during employment.
  • Reimbursement for initial airfare to Juneau.


Additional Benefits:

  • Professional development including employer-paid certifications and training.
  • Full-time job opportunities after graduation.
  • Assistance with student loan forgiveness after full-time/year-round employment.


Ideal Skill Set:

While we have high expectations of our interns and want them to be functioning members of our team, our Principal Engineers and Staff Engineers are always available to provide guidance, answer questions, and help our interns discover where their areas of interest or expertise lie. We know that, as an intern and student, you are still developing skills and deciding what specific engineering discipline to pursue. However, ideal skills may include:


  • Experience in AutoCAD Civil3D or other engineering programs
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office applications, specifically Word and Excel
  • Prior relevant internship or work experience
  • Solid time management skills and ability to produce accurate, high-quality work in an efficient manner
  • Experience with reading, analyzing, and interpreting construction plan sets
  • Ability to define problems, collect data, establish facts, and draw valid conclusions
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills


Even if you feel you don’t meet all of the qualifications and experience this job is seeking, we still encourage you to apply. We strongly advise you to research our firm and explore the proHNS website www.proHNS.com before submitting your application. In your cover letter, please demonstrate your knowledge of the firm and briefly explain why you think you would be a good fit at proHNS.

 

The position is open until filled. proHNS LLC is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer.

 

Thanks for your interest. We look forward to receiving your application.

Thank You
