Q: How did you decide on your field of study?
A “My family owns a landscaping company, which has made me enjoy working hands on, operating machinery and designing. I also enjoy being outdoors and the ability to stand back and see progress being made, so I thought Construction Management/Architecture would be a great fit for me.”
Q: How do you think this internship will impact your future goals?
A: “My ultimate goal is to work my way up to being a field Superintendent. I have a strong interest in working as a laborer foreman to start off, so I can manage my experience and be able to plan ahead to determine materials and man hours required. I want to learn all sides of the construction industry.”
Q: What is one fun fact about yourself?
A: “A fun fact about myself is that I am an Eagle Scout.”
