Internships | Vernon Hills, IL | Full Time
Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. (GHA) takes great pride in our intern program and we dedicate ourselves to improving it every year. Typically, 10-15 interns are hired each summer to be important members of our team working alongside other interns and our experienced staff.
Each intern is assigned a mentor and regularly assists with engineering design for various project types including highways, utilities, school and park sites, commercial sites while using AutoCAD and Microstation. Interns also might work on survey data collection, traffic data collection and analyses, construction observation, stormwater quality surveys, and wetland delineations. GHA also provides paid weekly in-house classes and hands on training on topics such as AutoCAD, construction management, stormwater design and surveying.

At the conclusion of the summer season, we have a company cook out where interns make short presentations about their experience during the summer with prizes awarded for the best presentations. Other activities include an outing to a Cubs-Brewers game, a volleyball team, and after work social events. Come join us!
