Sletten is eager to provide college students the opportunity to explore the construction industry and add value to their education and on the job training. Sletten is looking for students to fulfill internship roles during the summer months and possibly throughout the school year. We believe the experience of on the job training adds value to the student curriculum and enhances their learning experience. The internship should be an introduction into the construction industry that will allow one to gain experience that benefits the intern with training and knowledge of the industry.
Internships are open to individuals pursing degrees in Civil Engineering, Construction Management, Construction Engineering Technology, Occupational Health, Safety & Environment. Students pursuing all other related degrees in Engineering are also encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with Superintendents, Project Managers and Project Engineers. Interns will be exposed to day-to-day challenges in the construction industry. Interns will work part of the summer performing field type work and part office/administrative type work, all under supervision. The intern should plan to work a minimum of 40 hours per week.
Sletten encourages students in high school or trade schools to job shadow with our employees to learn more about the roles in the industry. We can arrange job shadow opportunities with Superintendents, Project Engineers, Project Managers, Safety and Administrative Professionals. We work with the student and school counselors to best accommodate students requests to explore the various roles offered with our company.
